Thought i could wring some info from you lake anglers on why fish don't eat when they should be.
Usually after during the rains, they drop their eggs and start eating.
Well sometimes they don't drop their eggs even after the rains when they should, and therefore they just don't eat. Seems to happen at all lakes in the area at the same time
Any theories ?
Regards
Owen

well owen! i am too new to put light on this, but let me share what
i heard from old guys spending their days and nights at our
local lakes.

first, is it really that fish don't eat or, don't touch your bait actually?

if its the bait then as per the old men, during and after the rain,
as there is loads of food for fish coming down from hills with
streams of water. fish enjoy that treat and ignore our baits.

so fish don't stop eating, it just change the menu.

but i am sure answer wouldn't be that simple.

regards

Rana

Barometric pressure and water temperature play a big part in feeding habits of fish. Could this be the reason for them going off the feed?

I find that when the surface of water is placid they will not take. For a fish to be on the feed the water surface must have at least small ripples. I have not been able to come to a logical conclusion as regards to temp and baro pressure as related to fish feeding tempo.

WRT Barometric pressure, a sudden fluctuation will trigger fish to feed.

I agree with Rana on this. In the rainy season, I've noticed its best to put you baited line directly into the in-flow of a lake and let it drift down with the current. Most of the fish will be concentrated in that area, and will be munching on stuff being washed into the lake.

Furthermore, lures and artificial baits arenot really effective in muddy waters... try using smelly baits or the most wonderous of them all... the humble earth worm!

Cheers,

I also agree with Rana on fish getting more natural feed during rains. And i guess natural feed is more appealing to the fish than our baits (Charais) which consists of such ingrediants that are never naturally found in lakes/streams. During rains, here on Rawal lake in Islamabad, you would find all babas sitting on the stream entrence to the lake. They believe that all fish would be there. Moreover in lakes after the rains, water tends to get muddy and this perhaps reduces the smell/attractiveness of the bait. Not sure about it though!

Is there any differentiation based on the species/types....as per their eating pattern?

Hi Saikibryan,
I believe food stuff that rolls down into the lakes after rains is more to the liking of Carp family.

Folks,

I've always known that changes in barometric pressure affected the way fish behave. Here is an article by "Lee Adams" which makes things a lot clearer.
