Curious of how yall react to a high pressure. I have had my a** handed to me multiple times by high pressure systems, literally be tearing fish up and as soon as the clouds clear the bite I had shuts down. Then it turns into a fish here and fish there for what seems like a couple days.

Mixture of fishing slowly, then changing to reaction baits during the brighter part of the day. Mostly keep my expectations in check and try out different techniques that I normally don't get around to trying. Focus on enjoying the fact that I'm on the water and not in the office, so even if the fish don't cooperate it's still a good day...

You're not alone JK, everyone has this problem. My thinking on this, and it's mine alone with no scientific evidence to back it up, is during high pressure the fishes air bladder expands and makes it try to seek a depth to relieve the pressure of the expanded air bladder. Kind of like when an airplane reaches a certain altitude it causes pressure in your ears and until they pop it can cause pain. Sometimes you can cup your hands over your ears and release the pressure. I think bass change depths to try and relieve their expanded air bladder. I've heard some anglers go to lighter line and smaller baits to counter act this but probably they also changed depths. Regardless, it's common knowledge these boogers get very difficult to impossible to catch. When the water gets flat under blue bird skies I go hunt me a nice chicken fried steak.

Now there's a strategy I could get behind... food

Wait, today is a HP day. But Lewisville produced a 14 plus monster. I think I'll go fishing.

An atmospheric high pressure change is equivalent of few (3-6) feet of water depth, therefore there is no need to go too deep to release the bladder pressure. Instead, I think that the HP change is a false signal about the lowering of water level that drive the fish to leave shallow waters which could be isolated from the main body of water. And opposite, when the atmospheric pressure drops, the (false) signal is “the water level is going up” and the fish is approaching shallow waters and shores. However, it's just my theory.

I've looked at tens of thousands of data points on this subject and have never been able to find any correlation with catch rate changes good or bad when it comes to barometric pressure changes. Heck, I wrote a book on it. Some of the biggest bag days in the elite series have come from "high pressure days." The fact is lots of fish are caught across the full spectrum of barometric pressure.

I know that what drives me crazy, on these days I am most the time scratching my head wondering what the heck and thinking someone on this lake has an 8+ in the box...

There is a good thread about this posted By Tarponfly, world champion legend local fishing guide and certified fishing savant. I searched for it but can't find it, it has every possible conclusion about air pressure and catch rates. (If you subscribe to the content as fact).
