    I personally dont follow any of the moon phase, solanar tables, weather effect, like other people do and I catch fish consistantly.

    The only rule I follow is, if you arnt fishing, you sure arnt gonna catch anything.

    There is debatable evidence that bigger fish, and possible more fish are caught within 3 days on either side of a full moon.

    I have fished three days so far around this full moon and have only noticed a distinct time that fish are biting. The bite has been about as good as it has been for the past several weeks, so I can not really say it is better.

    Yesterday we did see a distinct "start" to a good afternoon bite around 4:00pm, and the same was true the day before. Mornings have been ok, but nothing out of this world, but it has died off around 10:30 or so. Neither of these bites coincided with the moon rise or set.

    So, with all that set, the bite seem the same as always with only the time of day differing.
