Ok folks, I've been a diehard bass fisherman for the last 30 years, with a little catfish'n on the side, but as I get older I've seen the error of my ways and this year plan on do'n mostly catfish'n.Mostly on the Arkansas River. I've night fished a lot for bass and have found that the full moon is best followed by the new moon and the all the rest. How does the moon and the catfish bite relate to you. I used to trotline a lot as a kid with my grandpaw and he always wanted to fish the 3 days before the last quarter of the moon, don't know why, he just said it was the best time to go. Worked for him, but I think he could've caught'em anytime. I know the best time to go is when ever you can, but if you could pick a moon phase to go on when would it be?
