    I have to think it would mess up the fish for a period of time. You have sudden darkness, a
    fast temperature drop of 20 degrees and Im sure its going to mess the pressure up. It might be good in the AM leading up to it though.

    I was crappie fishing a few years ago when we had a partial eclipse. It got quite. Temp dropped and fish turned off. Was neat to be on the lake though.
