Am I right???   Humidity=Terrible fishing

Recommended Posts

I know their arent a lot of General Broad statements about fishing that are always true

but i think this one comes pretty close

Humidity= Bad fishing./....slow bite

is this pretty much known???cuz im just catching on

If that were true, no one south of the Mason and Dixon Line would ever catch a bass!

We have a couple of members from Georgia, Florida and Texas that "claim" they catch

a fish once in awhile. Maybe they're just pulling our legs.

The last time I checked the fish was already in 100% humidity. I don't think they will notice the difference. Here in GA the average humidity is around 85%.

It makes it terrible for old guys like me sitting in it< I don't think the fish give a thought  about it thought

;D ;D ;D ;D

Surprisingly, most of us have four "seasons", they just aren't all as severe. I might use Omah, Nebraska as an example: During the summer, it can be as brutally hot as Houston, TX; in the winter as cold as Buffalo, NY. Still, the bass are basically the same.

I'm glad to say you are wrong. If humidity kept the fish from biting, I wouldn't have caught any fish this season.

I believe we're the only ones affected by the humidity.

Since excuses were invented there aro no more lousy fishermen.

I have caught some of my larger LMBs when it is hot and humid.  The fish are not affected by the humidity.

My take on the bite with Humidity.  

Most of the time when you feel the humidity,  there is a lack of air flow, ....ie the wind isn't blowing enough to make us comfortable on the water.

No wind in itself can make for tough fishing, I like the wind to set up my fishing.

Also, being hot and sweaty makes for tougher concentration when the bite is lite.        

  Its a double edged sword, there either too much wind or no wind.    

The weather is one constant that makes fishing fishing and not catching!!!!

you might be talking about high barometric pressure.humidity has no affect on bass behavior.

As I know of the humidity doesn't do anything, but the actually temp. will.  I read in the last of 2nd to last Bassmaster magazine that some where in Texas, I forgot where they said, that the lake producting some big bass, record size.

I think it is that it makes if hard on us humans.

Odd way to ask a question; are you asking if low barametric pressure where higher humidity and cloudy conditions is common verses high barametric pressure equals low humidity and clear skies are the result?

Humidity is the percentage of water vapor to air; 70% humidity is 70 % water vapor in the atmosphere. High humidity defushes the light and generally increases the predator fish like bass to be more active, not less active.

Radical changes in barametric pressures that push out a high pressure dome that kept the skies clear and humidity stable, like a storm, creating very low barametric pressures will increase the humidity until it reaches 100% and turns to rain. As a result of the change to higher humidity with lower barametric, the lakes ecosystem becomes very active, flying insects, active baitfish feeding and predator fish eating the bait fish etc.

As the low pressure system passes and the barametric pressure increases, the humidity lowers and clear skies return and this is called a cold front because of the cold windy conditions building up the higher pressures. The low humidity during the cold front increases the light and the ecosystem becomes less active, no flying insects, bright skies, windy conditions, the baitfish and predator fish become less active.

This why it's a good idea to fish deeper water that is less affected by the bright skies and windy conditions, following increasing barametric pressures or cold fronts.

If you are talking about fishing in 95 degrees with 90% humidity, then I would say you need more beer and a shady place.

it may suck to fish in high humidity... but it doesn't mean you won't catch fish

high humidty = overcast at most times = great fishing.

I gotta agree with my buddy Dodge, if the humidity brings overcast skies, then the bite is usually a lot more consistent, and the bass are usually up.

Im down is south mississippi and humidity is pretty bad most of the time but it doesnt effect the fishing. Honestly I know alot of people say this or that or the other about the weather effects the fishing but I dont believe in all that. I believe in adapting and finding what the fish want.

Pretty much but not quite.  I think this is what WRB meant.  Seventy percent humidity isn't 70% water vapor in the atmosphere.  It is 70 percent of the amount of vapor that the atmosphere can hold.  If the air were 70% water, we'd all drown.  The higher the temperature of the atmosphere becomes, the more water vapor it can hold.  

To stay on point for this thread, my largest bass have been caught in hot, humid weather.  My personal best was caught on a day when the temperature hit 103 degrees on a humid, Missouri day.  Fortunately, I caught her in the first hour of fishing.  Otherwise, I wouldn't have lasted long enough to hook her.  :)
