Do fish bite more if the pressure is falling?

We are going to do a poll on this. It is an important one. I am challenging science with experience on the water. I would bet on us, reasonably, and not computer modeling, but this is going to be very important for a lot of reasons, and people feeding inshore reports like you are are gonna be critical.

IMHO, on the presumption that fish in Florida react the same as Northeastern fish, my 40+ years of logbooks say "YES!" emphatically.

Both inshore and offshore, a falling barometer is a feeding signal to fish.

Remember that "science" is the reason NMFS/NOAA, Dr. Jane, et al are beating us to death.

For many years, I attended and participated in Fisheries Meetings on every level, from local to state to Federal. Whenever I, as a charter operator with 300+ days on the water per year would always be told by some young scientist with his/her Ph.D (piled high & deep) was that my information from my time a sea was "anecdotal!"

If we don't do some thing soon, we will all be pirates if we fish! AAAAAAAAARGH!!!!!

A serious -- very respected and very serious -- fishery scientist just told me I am dreaming. That he has "proven in two articles and a book I wrote" that barometer has nothing to do with fish.

I say he's typical of scientists with too much desk time ;)

the bass in different ponds around my neighborhood sure did look hungry a couple days ago, unfortunately I do not have a barometer or sit around all day and watch the online barometer(probably isn't area specific)
