Thats incredible, what location was this happening? Would it apply to all species or just a specific one?

South australia area blackfellas caves use drop nets catch them quicker watch them walk in don't need craypots .get a200mm pvc tub with thread on end cut glass to size thread end on and you have a looking glass see every thing.need to find reefs drop them wright beside it or even better on sand wright on the ledges.Works for crays ever time not shore about other spieces.

With reef fishing, it is pretty simple.

Barometer rising, frish biting

Barometer falling, fish not biting

Does that happen through the hole water table or just on reefs. I know down her the bream stop biting as soon as the tide stops running.

skinss, I think a falling barometer affects most fishing as I have noticed it seems to affect estuary fishing as well
