Lunar Tables

Recommended Posts

Could someone breifly explain to me the importance, or lack there of, lunar tables, and following the moon:New moon, full moon, etc., and the corolation between these variables and feeding activity levels in fish, and other animals. Any helpful links to sites or posts would be great. Thanks.

I know its been discussed on here before, I think I actually asked the question a few months back, and basically what I learned from it was that 90% of the guys on here have zero faith in lunar/solunar tables.

I have a friend who believes in them.  But then again, he doesn't like to get up early so if it says the best bite is at 12 noon on a hot august day, he's all for that.  I think he ignores the times when it says to get up at 4 a.m.

Personally, I don't buy into it.

The only time I care about lunar tables is when the spawn is near other than that I don 't care about them the rest of the year.

I can 't do squat about the moon phase, it 's a variable of nature, can 't do squat about the wind, it 's a variable of nature, can 't do squat about air temperature, it 's a variable of nature; I can 't change them nor modify them, what 's under my control are my lures, my fishing techniques and my knowledge and it depends on how good I 'm at modifying and adapting them to the conditions what makes me catch fish or not.

I recommend fishing on days ending in a "y"

but only during hours designated as AM or PM.

I'm with Raul. Around pre-spawn/spawn time, I'm concerned about the full moon.

The rest of the time, I say follow RW's advice. Go whenever you can.

Lunar tables are something I'm conscious of but not controlled by even during spawn  ;)

to try and answer your ?. lunar phases affects fish behavior and moods.it has nothing to do w/ when you should or shouldnt go fishing.to be aware of the present lunar phase and adjust baits and techniques accordingly will most definitely give you a better chance of out smarting and catching your prey.
