Ive found that those beautiful days with high Barometric pressure to be my least productive for stripeys. Thats why I always surmised that the cloudy overcast days were my best fishing days because of the lower pressures . Thats why I find the discussion on barometric pressures fascinating. Ive hooked into a few unlandable monsters in approaching storms. And have slaughtered em immediately upon clearing of the storm. I'm sure it had to do with the wind and barometric pressures. I must admit though 90 % of my fishing is done at night. I dont catch enough fish to determine any enduring baro patterns. Only the experience with the approaching and clearing storm successes. And some lucky big bait bites I get when I'm fishing. :D
How inappropriate to call this planet Earth when it is quite clearly Ocean.
