    I like a full moon for nite fishing not necessarily because of phases but cause I'm old and it helps me see better

    I like fishing the new moon for fishing at night.... on the full moon, the fishing seems to be better early in the morning, rather than early in the evening.....

    The moon's influence is there even when the moon is not showing... it has the high and low each night... maybe mid day is better

    I go to the weather channel and look up fish report.And if peak up I usualy do good but if peaks down I do poor.Might be mental I don't know.

    i perfer full moon i try to get out on each full moon and seem to do better. one of my best trips was on a full moon, when i got my pb avatar fish. i looked through the world record records a while back and the majority of world record fish were cought douring full moon :wink: alot of others were new moon fish with the rest inbetween so yes i believe it does influence the fish. if i rember right the fishing forcast calanders have the best days in conjunction with the full moon.

    I used to pay attention to the moon and try to plan trips by it. But now
    I just go fishing when I can no matter what the moon phase is.

    I prefer new moon because fish seem more active.My pb was caught on a full moon but it was the only bite i had all night.
