Thundery showers are forecast today and I was wondering what impact the thunder and lightning have on fish feeding behaviour. I understand the danger of waving a long carbon fibre pole around in a thunderstorm, but I was thinking of doing a bit of lure fishing for perch. There is a perchy spot I know near a road bridge and I could nip under the bridge to avoid the showers. Does thunder and lightning encourage fish feeding or does it spook them?
