Catch More Fish by the Moon

Anglers  are always looking for the best places and time to go fishing. Fishing is usually fun no matter what, but it’s always more fun when you have a successful catch, right?There are a variety of factors that affect fish activity and behavior, from the tides to the time of the day to the temperature to the weather conditions to the seasons.

But one more factor that many people believe play a role in how fish act and behave is the moon.  This is the result of solunar theory, which is basically the hypothesis that the moon can predict the movement of fish (as well as animals for hunting).

The idea was first written by John Alden Knight in 1926 in Florida.  Anglers there told Knight that they were able to catch more fish depending on the position of the moon. Knight dived into what he had been told and tried to explore it from a scientific perspective.  The result was solunar theory, and he argued that the moon (along with the tides and the sunrise and sunset) played the biggest role in fish behavior.

To be more specific, Knight argued that the two periods where the fish are the most active is when the moon sets and rises, as well as in two minor periods midway between the major periods.  He also claimed to have discovered that ninety percent of all catches would happen during a new moon, and he used tables to show the best times for each day of the year.

Many anglers to this day will use the solunar forecast to determine when the most productive times will be to fish, and hunters will use it for animals as well. With the introduction of smartphone apps that deliver a wide range of specific fishing features, many anglers are turning to solunar forecast as a way to help their users get on the fish faster. One of the best options out there is the FishAngler app. FishAngler’s feature rich Solunar Forcast section delivers the goods in an easy to navigate interface. The fishing forecast basically shows anglers when the fish are likely to be more active, therefore increasing your odds of getting more bites.

Here is an example screenshot of the solunar fishing forecast from FishAngler that shows a major activity period.
