    Do any of you go by this, or believe in it? I dont really pay too much attention to it, I go when I want to.

    I think it's based off the moon cycles though. Does it really matter that much? I'm not superstitious or anything, but my wife swears by that damn almanac, so thought i'd see what you all thought. Credible, or crap?

    That is NOT what I wanted to hear. It says the fishing this weekend will be "Poor" :sad2:

    Well I'll be out at Jacomo this weekend trying my best to disprove that dad gum book. :smile2:

    I think we need a "Fishemen's Almanac" compiled from moon phases, seasonal and locational water temps, and seasonal weather patterns.

    But I do agree with the Almanac that this weekend fishing will be poor because catfish will be on the spawn in many areas.

    First Kurt Welcome to the BOC, and I have to agree with it for the most part.

    just got back from the Mo. river. Stayed all night. Fished two spots. Cought three channels at the first spot then moved and set up for the night. About four this mourning the alarm went off on my buddies real and it was a pretty little 43# blue. Had a small head and was a very clean unmarked fish so we thought it might be a female. It was good and fat. Not much action but had a great time. Good luck on the lake.

    Says it's "Good" the next few days, but on Friday it says "Best". Sounds like that's my signal... :smile2:
