I have been out fishing lately with little luck, infact we were fishing a lake in Lindstrom yesterday and with the assistance of my Marcum camera we were able to see out baits surrounded by crappies, sunfish and bass. They would come up sniff it and take off, we then proceeded to change jigs(color & size) along with varying the depths. You could watch them follow the bait but they still would not bite. I am wondering if any of you have experienced the same thing? If so have any of you been successful in getting them to bite, if so how?
I have also heard so much about barometric pressure playing an improtant role in the way fish bite, does anybody have any suggestions on where to purchase an instrument that reads the pressure?

Thanks, looking forward to hearing from you!

Lots of the weather sites show you current pressure.
Here is one


As for the fish not biting... If your talking about panfish. I would suggest downsizing until they feel comfortable eating your offering. Play with your presentation and see if anything else will trigger a response.. Slowly raising your jig and lifting the fish then pause and rest for a moment then raise it a little higher allowing the fish to follow. this can often trigger them to strike. You'll often find the area in the water column that these fish are willing to travel through. Then you can work them in that area and know the limit that those fish have. I've lifted crappies from 20 ft to 8 ft before they'll bite. They just keep following closer and closer to the hole.

Is your Marcum camera a color model? A couple years ago I tried using a color model (IIRC, not Marcum) for video fishing and hooking it up to a camcorder repeatedly blew out the monitor and added a greenish tint to the (unusable) video.

I'm looking for a good color underwater camera that can used for video fishing (hooked up to a camcorder) if anyone has discovered one.
