    You are serious my friend! and I like it!!! I havent really noticed a big defference in BP for crappie but I havent paid as much attention as when bass fishing tournaments either. I am interested in hearing some ideas on this.:confused:

    I know that a blue bird sky keeps bass tight to cover and a over cast day spreads them out But not sure about those crappie, I agree before a front and its tough after for sure.

    Most anything above 28 and below 31 works for me.

    Kind of like a buddie of mine that refused to fish if the wind was blowing from the East-----He never caught anything-----cause he was sitting at home complaining about the wind direction!:cheers:

    There are a lot of time when the baramoter is rising or falling that will jump the bite into High Gear------:cheers:

    Can't give you an exact pressure, but the best freshwater fishing I have had has been during very low pressures, even during the rain. With a wind from the west (seriously).

    When there is a long spell of low pressure. At least 3 days! Always be on the water the last couple of hours before the high pressure comes in. After the high is in the bites over! Thats fish in the freezer!:D
