Q: Question: What is better barometric pressure falling or rising?
A: A falling barometer is always better than a rising one. Barometric pressure is basically air density. The higher the density the lower the barometer. Clear blue, “high skies”, have lower density and are often the days when catching fish can be difficult. High density air occurs on those days when the barometer is falling and usually cloudy weather or storm conditions are present. As this situation develops nature becomes more active, feeding up in anticipation of the storm. We often see a lot of activity in nature as whole but more importantly the fish will be very active and feeding heavily. When ever you encounter these conditions fast moving baits will make a big difference in your success.
