"Barometric pressure has an effect on the oxygen levels in the water and this affects the feeding patterns of fish.

Fish notice the decline in the oxygen content of the water. This oxygen starts depleting because of the air pressure and the sea conditions present. As the pressure climbs so the oxygen levels increase making the fish more active and going about their normal behavior. Once the air pressure stabilizes, the oxygen levels reach their highest levels. This climb in the barometer usually coincides with a south westerly wind.

Once the weather stabilizes, the north easterly begins to blow filling the water with even more oxygen leaving the fish happy and comfortable. This is called the ‘lag’ period. The north easterly wind means a low pressure system is moving up the coastline and the pressure starts dropping as this low pressure comes closer. As the pressure drops so the oxygen levels also begin to deplete causing the “smash” as fish begin to feel the depletion in oxygen causing them to panic almost and thus resulting in the fish eating as much as possible before the bad weather conditions arrive."
