I've seen this more when conditions like rising water and flooding have put the brakes on spawning activity for a prolonged time duri the summer. Moonlight helps to see a potential predator or nest robber coming.

I fish the moon cycles a lot not so much during the night. I do great on the full moon cycle and good on the new moon cycle. To me fish seem to bite better from the start of the full moon cycle to the end of the new moon cycle. Just my two cents.
Side note: During full moon cycle at night especially during spring and summer the Bluegill bite has been always good.
