Why The Moon Is Your Key To Night Fishing Success
Want To Catch More Fish At Night, Watch the Moon!
Sounds like a crazy idea, doesn't it?
I thought so to, until I experienced it first hand.
Using the moon, you are able to learn several things about fish at night. During a full moon, you are most likely to find fish hiding in the shadows. Don't ask why it's true, but that's what we have seen. When you find shadows on the water (from trees, etc), you know exactly where you need to cast your line.
If the moonlight is not shining down on the water and there are no shadows, the fish will be much more scattered in the water, making your job of finding them much more difficult.
On the other side of the coin, it seems like the fish are more likely to hit when the moon is hidden, either by clouds or a quarter moon. So, the real trick is to use the moon to determine how you are going to fish that particular night.
If you have a bright, full moon, head for the shadows on the water. If you are on the water and the moon is nowhere in sight, you can go straight to your favorite spot and fish like you normally do, but expect to get more frequent and harder hits on your line.
This tip is especially true for bass, but it works with virtually any kind of fish at night.
Some fishermen swear they only fish during a full moon, others say no moonlight is best. I say, both are best, you just have to alter your style depending on how much moonlight you have that night.
Try it out for yourself and see if you get the same results. This one tip alone has helped me catch some of the biggest fish in my life. Hopefully it will help you do the same.
