    What will a passing storm do to the fishing? We are supposed to have a storm here in the next 15-20 mins, and i was hoping to get out afterward. Any advice?

    I have always had great luck while and after a storm [right after] its like a kick start for the fish . iv'e been skunked some days til the storm shakes things up . My advice is get out there , get to fishing .

    Get out there as soon as the thunder stops.

    My uncle and I went on a camping trip to do a bit of catfishing one weekend. We fished for 13 hours (total time, not all at once) without a single bite. Then, right after breakfast one morning a storm shower moved through and we caught close to two dozen fish in about 45 minutes. Talk about *fun*.

    i have caught alot of fish before during and after a storm. i think the constant of the water being pelted makes them weary and they are moving more or it is just the good bluegills i have on my hook lol

    according to my brother its the barometric pressure , when the barometer drops out from what i understand the gravitational force on the fish is less in other words they get more bouyant theres less downward force on the fish and they feel more hungry which makes them feed all i know is iv caught good fish before during and after a storm

    Thats a lot of scientific mumbo jumbo for saying that the food is all washed in the water during the rain :lol::lol::lol:

    Josh,

    I had luck before, during, and after a thunderstorm.
    Adverse conditions can produce fish.
