- High Pressure Features - Clear skies, dry air, little to no wind, and cooler temperatures.
- Especially during late fall and early winter months high pressure brings sunny bluebird skies, cold weather, and poor fishing.
- Low Pressure Features - Cloudy skies, high humidity, light winds, steadier temperatures, and possible participation. Fishing is almost always better during these conditions.
- Good fishing seems to arrive with a west wind because wind from the west or south west usually is indicative of a low pressure system moving in, resulting in lower barometric pressure.
- Besides being an indicator of pressure it also creates currents and waves that push zoo-plankton forward until they hit shore and accumulate. This creates schools of shad to collect and the bass will follow.
- Most research shows that rain, snow, and any other precipitation has little effect on feeding habits of gamefish.
- Cold or muddy water pouring in a cove will typically drive bass away from that area.
- Runoff that is warmer can attract fish like a magnet.
