    was wanting to get some opinions on what is the a good number for example if the news shows 29.9 with arrow pointing up is that good i have been reading up on how pressure affects fishing but not that good at retaining stuff i read all the time so i thought i would ask all you cat masters out there for some help. or even if you think you could explain it maybe that would help. i am just a little confused so any help would be awesome thanx guys.

    I have found that when the baro falls the fish are more active, which is to say that they are moving about foraging. when it climbs or is holding high, you'll find that things slow down. Not to say you wont catch fish, just wont be a busy day. Also check out moon cycles, this drives fish also. Try going on a new moon, even better if a low press/system is moving though.
