the Moon Calculator you can know all of these times
anywhere in the U.S.
and plan your
activities around the peak times, the moon phases and the weather
where you are.
There are a lot of solunar tables but, they can never be printed to be accurate for
exactly where you are fishing.
The Moon Calculator can give you accurate times for any
town close to where you will be fishing.
This process will help you determine when the fish are going to be most
active on any given day.
Where you fish.
The day of a NEW or FULL MOON will provide the
strongest influence in each month.
When a Solunar Period falls within 30 minutes to an hour of sunrise or sunset you can
anticipate great action!
When you have a moonrise or moonset during that period the action
will be even greater.
And, finally, when the above times occur during a NEW or FULL MOON,
you can expect the best action of the season!
BEST FISHING DAYS
Major or Minor Solunar Periods that fall near the times of Sunrise or Sunset
during a Full or New Moon.
It's no secret that fish and game tend to feed during dawn and
dusk (sunrise and sunset).
What increases the activity is the effect of a moonrise or
moonset plus the specific
monthly periods of New (dark) and Full (light) Moons. When these
times coincide with a moon-rise or a moon-set the fishing action can be spectacular.
Finally, a change in the local weather coinciding with the periods will further enhance
June has more combined sun-moon influence than any other month.
During a FULL MOON the sun and moon are nearly opposite each other and very few minutes pass without one or the other being in our sky.
During a NEW MOON, both bodies are in near-perfect rhythm traveling the
skies together with their forces combined. Because of the interaction between the many lunar and solar cycles, no two
days, months or years are identical.
WATCH THE WEATHER
Fish and Wildlife can sense when the weather is changing, and any bird, animal or fish can sense the approach of a storm.
Adverse water or air temperature, abnormally high, low, muddy water conditions, all sorts of things will offset the
effects of Solunar Periods.
Every sportsman knows that it is beyond reason to
expect good fishing or hunting every day.
The Solunar Theory will point the way to the
best that each day has to offer, but in no sense is it a guarantee.
WATCH THE BAROMETER
Intensity of activity also varies from day to day, according to conditions in general.
the barometer happens to be steady or rising,
if the air temperature is favorable to water temperature
Then a long and active response to a Solunar Period can be expected.
