Default Atmospheric/Barometric pressure-Bottom Bite

Atmospheric/Barometric pressure & the Bottom Bite. How do they relate?

Anyone have an opinion of when the bite is better or worse? Do you prefer the pressure to be rising or falling? Does it really make a difference? Is there a magic number when the bite stops?

Anyone have an opinion on this they will share?

Joey, this is a paste from an article written by Dr. David Ross, a scientist at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute, I'll put the link to the full article after that. Very interesting read!


A rise or fall in barometric pressure, such as with an approaching cold front, usually means a shift in the weather pattern. And it is the change in the weather, not any fluctuation in barometric pressure, that affects both the fish and the fishing. In fact, most saltwater species probably aren’t even aware of barometric variations.

I dont know if atmosphere pressure is felt under water but I read when it falls their air bladder deflats and they think their stomach is empty so they feed. Just the opposite when it rises.

Just read had it backwards.

Interesting article Will. I can't help but wonder though, Is there more to it from a fish's point of view than our scientific facts can point out.

Deep lines I don't know what it does but I believe it changes their mood somehow.
