Fish when you are able.
With that stated, how long does it take to look through the tables to see which days should be best?
I do scan through the moon phases, and tide charts just to find the peak times fish should be feeding and should be more active.
I spend so much of my money, effort, and time on equipment and trips, that it seems negligent of me, not to do everything in my power to cover all the bases in the pursuit of the pastime I enjoy so much.
In the past, when I was only able to go occasionally,I did plan my few fishing trips around the moon phase, to better increase my chances to catch more and bigger fish.
It didn't always work out the way I thought it should according to those charts. Or I was just a p^&s-poor fisherman to begin with. lol
There are so many variables that dictate what a particular species will do at a certain time and place, that it can get over-whelming to the point it isn't enjoyable any longer.
If you are only going to catch fish, hire a professional. It is actually cheaper in the long run.
But even they have days when catching is poor.
Hopefully, most folks are going for the whole experience. Good times with family or friends, relaxing and enjoying God's beautiful creation.
