Weather, hands down.

Weather tops solunar by a large margin.

You can predict solunar tables can't predict weather. Weather has a big impact on our ability to fish, solunar tables don't.

Weather gets the nod but don't over look prime feeding times on the lakes you fish.

Bass feeding, not sure. Me fishing, weather.....meaning I fish when I can. If I don't have a class to teach, a game to coach, a game to watch my kids play in or anything else more important to do I will be fishing weather permitting.

I give solunar tables the same respect and trust as I do the astrological charts. (none)

I don't see it as an either/or decision.  But rather, how the two work together to inform you of fishing conditions.  It can be tricky to figure out to be sure.

 

I've been using an app for about 6 weeks now, and as much as I'd like to disprove it, the thing has been pretty accurate. I'm actually surprised at how well it combines weather and solunar information to accurately predict LOCAL fishing conditions (not just regions, like most solunar charts). I've tracked it against local tournament results on a specific lake, and it's been on the money so far.

 

I don't know how they do it, but it works.  It's free to try out for 60 days (who does that these days?).  https://bassforecast.onelink.me/5aRm/BassResource

Thanks Glenn.  This looked cool enough to try.   I have a bunch of money in my Google rewards account.  Figured it can't hurt.  I will still fish when I can, this might just be some neat info.

I've never looked at "solunar effects". It's tough enough just trying to make sense of weather effects. My sample sizes are too small. And, in my mind, fishing is just plain a lousy sampling method. There are too many uncontrolled variables. It can become a chess game with your own mind. Mine is too limited to do it by gestalt. And, my attempts at applying real measurements/"data" has fallen way short of useful. I've done real science at a variety of levels, and feel pretty comfortable saying that "fishing ain't it".

 

That said, I'm still given it hell. But, I doubt I'll be applying any voodoo to my intellectual arsenal, at least util I get a well controlled/understood monster data set to apply it to. A well known angler with a research background attempted to apply solunar tables to a large dataset of tournament catch results. Trying/hoping/wishful that sheer size of N would tease out something. It did, I believe finding that there was a slight inc in catch rate during... don't remember -one of the minors, I think. Anyway, it was sent off to a real peer-reviewed fisheries science journal. And it was dinged for weak statistics -the numbers didn't come through the wash well, despite a fairly large N. IF however did publish it, touted it in fact, furthering the -at this point, in my mind- myth.

 

My take-home, at present: If a solunar period, or lucky hat, makes an angler concentrate better, I'm all for it. It's just not for me. I'm still trying to track the weather! :headscratch:

I posted this on a previous thread about barometric pressure.

 

I've read all the research on barometric pressure, water temperatures, moon phases, length of sunlight, weather & so on.

 

This pre-spawn has debunked every single one! 

 

Everywhere the bass should have been they weren't & everywhere the shouldn't have been they were.

 

Everything they should have been doing they weren't & everything shouldn't have been doing they were.

 

The guys that were successful ignored all of that & simply went fishing!
