I would say that my past experience is the fishing is slower on a full moon. But I have had a few great days on a full moon also. I don't let it affect my fishing. Still better than working.

I like whatever moon phase is happening whenever I get a chance to go to the lake and fish!


See you on the lake and have a great day!

Shout out to the musky guys out there! It takes a different time of angler to excel at that!

I love it and hate it all at the same time!

Musky fishing is maddening sometimes. You go hours trying to raise fish and then out of nowhere a 4 footer is following your bait to the boat. It is when you can convert the fish at boat side with a figure 8, oval, l or whatever method is what keeps you coming back for more punishment.

I don't know about bass but it has a great affect on crappie fishing. It usually makes the morning bite slow and the afternoon bite better.

I used to keep a journal and I had years of documented results from trips on and off of full moons. The main thing to remember is that is does effect the TIME of the day the fish feed. To say the fish will or will not bite on any one given day based solely on the moon isn't a clear cut deal. One thing I noticed is the find tend to bite later in the day on a bright full moon. If you're fishing a tournament that isn't an ideal scenario.

I do think the Bass are a little slower and the Sand Bass a lot slower. They can see the shad and are feeding like crazy in the night with the moon light. No data .. Just how I see it.

I know a lake, that in early June, you have to reel your bait AWAY from the 40" fish. Or suffer from getting tired of catching them. Full moon or not. You can see 50"+ subs everywhere.

I've noticed that sometimes on the full moon that the bass don't bite well once the sun gets up until around noon or later.

I prefer fishing on the new moon.

When I fished saltwater the full moon was always best for us when we had a super low tide and were able to reach off shore holes and cuts while surf fishing.

We've always had better success night fishing when it is a new moon. Proven over and over. The only thing full moon does is allow you see a little better at night.

That must be a hidden gem in Canada. I've boated 22 musky in a single day, but it was on a VERY remote lake with an enormous population of 30"-40" class fish and few if any 50
inchers.
