How to use a barometer?
Barometric pressure, or air pressure, is the actual weight of air pressing down. To make it more easily understandable think about it in this way. When you go diving in the ocean or a swimming pool, the deeper you go the more the water presses down on you. At one meter below the surface it will be less than what it will be at ten meters.
Air pressure works in the same way. The lower you go to the coast the higher the pressure and the higher up a mountain or inland you go the lower the pressure.
Air pressure is measured in hectopascals (hPa) here in South Africa.
How air pressure affects the weather.
When you look at a weather forecast on TV you will see either a big H (High pressure) or a big L (Low pressure). A high pressure pushes air down which prevents clouds from building and thus causing everything to be warm and dry.
A low pressure on the other hand causes air to move up. It is this upwards flow that cools everything down and forms clouds.
Air pressure and fishing.
Carp are greatly affected by the amount of air that's found in the water. With a higher air pressure, like you would find on a warm, dry day, there is a lot less air in the water.
Carp will feed a lot less at these times because they need air for energy and as there is a lot less air in the water their energy levels will also be down.
On days where there is a low pressure, when it is nice and cloudy and even a little rainy, there is a lot more air in the water causing the carp to have a lot more energy to move around and eat. These days are the best for fishing.
Where to find carp using air pressure.
When there is a high pressure system in the area carp will tend to feed more towards the surface of the water where there is more air available and vice versa when the air pressure is lower. For carp anglers it would not make sense to use bottom baits during a high pressure system as the carp will be feeding on the surface and not on the bottom, if they are feeding at all.
