Some fishermen say that the “getting is good” right before a big storm, but is it true?
Our Verify Team took a closer look, and here’s what we found:
- Some fishermen believe the change in barometric pressure before a storm makes it easier to catch fish.
- According to the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, there have been no definitive studies to back that up.
- Also, since water is denser than air it would be tough for fish to even sense a change in pressure.
- Lastly, they said it isn’t safe to go fishing when a big bad storm is approaching
Although some fisherman might disagree, the science proves fishing does not get better ahead of a storm. So, we can verify this is false.
