In recent decades, many authors of articles on fishing have tried to analyze how the state of the air, in particular fluctuations in atmospheric pressure, affects the life of aquatic organisms, including fish.
The main conclusion reached by almost everyone who wants to understand this issue is as follows: any change in atmospheric pressure immediately affects the physiological state of the fish, reducing its activity, or, conversely, forcing it to move more intensively in search of food (in fairness it should be noted that these phenomena are often confirmed by the practice of fishing).
Also, all authors of publications, as one, found the organ “responsible” for such a reaction in the fish – it is its swimming bladder, which, supposedly shrinking or bloating, responds to changes in external atmospheric pressure, introducing a certain discomfort into the life of the fish.

Everything about winter fishing of roach and perch, it would seem, is said. But any information changes over time, updates, becomes more saturated. Nevertheless, it is necessary to emphasize some points of their fishing in the winter on rivers and lakes, which justify themselves at different times of the day and in different weathers.
Especially observant anglers note some regularity in the behavior of roach. So, in winter, roach most often prefers areas with a flat bottom at depths of 2-4 meters. In reservoirs, such places are often located between the old channel and coastal shallow waters. In their opinion, roaches are most abundant in winter where algae raged in the summer. Apparently, among their remains, the fish finds a lot of food. Continue reading
