Hi There,

The Moon affects fishing because it directly effects the tides.

During the full-moon and No-Moon the tides rises to its highest i.e. spring tide or Oodan or Udan, and covers more surface that on the neap or bhang tide. Fishing tends to slack a bit during the neap tide. Generally the higher the tide goes the better the fishing that month.

What happens as this tide rises is that if fill up ponds etc where smaller creatures can live in relative peace for a while until the next high tide. Besides this currents are higher during a high tide and this in turn, turns up stones and stirs up the bottom, releasing crustaceans and other invertebrates from the substrate. Small fish come in to feed on these smaller creatures and larger fish know where to find these smaller fish. In short it starts a chain reaction.

This is how the moon affects fishing.

And yes the moon does affect some anglers too…

Hope this was helpful

Hi Guys,

Santosh, Fred and Ken very valid points and I must agree.

Just recently caught a load of fish on the neap tide, was wondering what it would be like on the Spring just before the full moon.

Like Fred, I like to fish before the Full moon and I have had some real fantastic fishing during this period. However like Ken said the No Moon can also be very productive. I know guys who like to fish the No Moon better than the full. I guess it all boils down to a matter of personal preference and what one has experienced over a period of time.

I for one preffer the Full Moon nights as I feel a lot more comfortable casting with some light that in total darkness that I have never come to grips with. It takes me a good half hour to cast properly in total darkness and I am never perfect. The other thing is the moon light will assist fish seeing the lure night as well.

I have also had some fantastic experiences neap tide times too, but if I compare fishing over the years, the quality of fish (size) of fish that I have taken in the Spring tide is far superior to what I have taken in the Neap tide. Also the fish during the Spring tide are more active for some reason and fight harder.

Don't know if you all have had the same experiences but perhaps if you think back it may throw some light on the subject.

Santosh the boatmen prefer trolling in Bhang because the water moves slowly and they have more time to troll a beat than on the spring tide where they have to adjust quickly to the water depths on a rising and more so on the falling tide where you will notice how cautious they are.



Bobby

Something that may sound strange but there is some truth thats when you land at the fishing spot the conditions are ideal ,the tide the colour height of water everything just too perfect but BUT NO FISH......there has probably been a earthquake somewhere.This has been my observation over the years and i guess earthquakes happening in the sea or land does effect the marine life in it.Well if a quake in bay of bengal generated a wave that went all the way up to Somalia thats the power of the sea. :roll:
