  • Atomospheric pressure drop

    getting back into the sport and am hoping to put a bend in the rod this week but ive noticed a massive pressure drop from weds night till at least tues

    will this effect the fishing as if i remember right they will turn off the feed?

    have i mis-remembered?

    All this year I have fished in all weathers, getting better or worse, and can't say I noticed a great deal of difference. ATP ranges from 950-1050? millibar. In 'weight', using 1000mb as a standard, this is the difference between 9.5Ton of atmosphere or 10.5Ton being applied to the water. And water cannot techinally be compressed. What happens is the atmospheric downforce has an effect on the water density ( at a molecular level, it's that small ) , and the fish pick up on this to some extent if the yarns are to be believed.

    My personal opinion is that ATP rises or falls affecting fishing are a load of boswellox, just carry on as you were.

        Succint and straight to the point as usual Luke.

                Theres an old saying "wind in the east,fish bite least" or words to that effect.Easterly winds are associated with high pressure weather systems,and during the years i spent beach fishing,easterly winds were the kiss of death.
                Whats a commercial fishery ?
