Andrew Martinsen on Barometric Pressure & Walleye Fishing
Analyze Barometric Pressure To Catch More Walleyes


Andrew Martinsen here, hope you're doing well. Barometric pressure is the measurement of the atmospheric weight. Traditional barometers use mercury columns to determine the actual measurement. Barometric pressure rises and falls accordingly to incoming weather fronts.

Most anglers agree that the atmospheric pressure affects walleye behavior. On the other hand, many can't agree why it makes a difference at all. One idea is that barometric pressure has a direct effect on walleye while another school of thought thinks the change is more indirect.

Barometric pressure can be seen as a weight that surrounds everything throughout the day. When a storm front comes in the pressure will start to drop. Walleye can sense the ease of pressure and become more active feeders. The idea is that less pressure makes it easier to move through the water.

The increasing cloud cover reduces sunlight which in turn makes walleye more eager to move. Some of the best walleye fishing happens right before a storm. The reverse of this would be when pressure returns to normal or even rises.

When barometric readings start to rise, walleye slow down and become lethargic. They look for cover from emerging sunlight and increasing pressure. Therefore, high barometric pressure and sunny skies make walleye fishing a bigger challenge.

Of course not everyone holds to the philosophy. Another thought is that walleye, as well as other predatory fish, are merely reacting to changes that are going on around them. Walleye aren't fans of bright light so it makes sense that they seek cover when the skies are blue.

When it comes to pressure changes, walleye are built to handle it. They patrol deep and shallow waters as part of their daily routine. There size and system adjust to changes with ease as they coast from shallow to deeper depths. Other creatures in the water aren't so fortunate.

Algae, phytoplankton and zooplankton are bottom rungs on the aquatic food ladder. Normally they suspend in the water column. Slight pressure changes don't affect them much. They are designed to adjust buoyancy as needed to stay put. A big shift in the pressure can make them instable. This in turn causes them to float in the range of fish that would love to have them for dinner.

As smaller fish gather to enjoy the buffet of plenty, they are not the only diners at the feast. Walleye will feed more aggressively while the pickings are lush. Walleyes love an easy meal and nothing is better than distracted bait fish.

It hasn't been determined why barometric pressure affects walleyes so much. Most anglers will agree that there is some kind of relationship. When walleyes are the target of the mission, every little bit of information can help make you a better predator.
