What are your opinions and experience on full moons and even new moons fishing at night . Do you prefer them or dispise them. Or do you go to that peice of water that seems to highlight during certain lunar phases?
Typically I find that new and full moons help fishing, and not just at night, the entire day. Actually, it usually even improves fishing for the couple days before and the couple days after. The only downside w/ a new moon is fishing at night you can't see shiet...
Full moon tides are good, but when it gets too bright out at night it seems to kill the action for me. Do good in the evenings when the moon is orange. Action seems to die as it gets brighter. Haven't tried with week with all the heavy wind. In general, the darker the night the better the fishing like new moons.
I agree with you tiderunner. The darker the better. Full moon nights even with some cloud cover offer some better fishing. I have found on big full moon tides I have to fish even further into the back. But you had better be out quik. You can't pole on mud.
