What about atmospheric pressure?

Its states are of two types:

  • Reduced atmospheric pressure.
  • Increased atmospheric pressure.

Each of them can affect both positively and negatively on rush fishing after the storm. And you need to understand how to use it. We will consider two types of fishing using a float or bottom fishing.

In the first case, the fish becomes more active and hangs out in the middle and upper parts of the reservoir. This will suit us for fishing with a float.
