What effect do big storms have on fish?

After some wild weather things have settled down now.

What effect does a storm have on the fish? From past experience it seems to vary with the species. I have fished a lot of bass contest's, so I'm most familiar with them.

It seems that the bass, in shallow water are affected quite a bit more than fish in deep water. The bass in shallow water head for the thickest weeds in the area. They actually bury in the weeds, sometimes facing head down. They are still catchable but you have to put the lure in their face.
