I might be considered a quack for bringing this up, but how many of you have seriously considered solunar influence on fish & game activity? Several years ago when I was an avid bowhunter I used the solunar tables (and later my wife did too) with success. The general theory is that whenever the moon is straight overhead or straight below, wildlife has a natural urge to feed. Whenever this occurs at dawn or dusk the effect is even greater. See this thread for what I consider to be a prime example: http://www.catfish1.com/forums/showthread.php?t=36214 I know that factors like weather, breeding/spawn/rut, hunting/fishing pressure, etc. will negate the solunar influence. But consider Jackies trip to the Cave Run Spillway Dec 26; the weather had stabilized, no spawning activity, and Im assuming there wasnt a lot of fishing pressure there the day after Christmas, moon straight overhead at dusk and; WHAM!! Hehe, its a textbook example to me. Or maybe Im just a quack.
