Basically what happens is that other smaller organisms like phylum and ciliates, phytoplankton, small fish, water insect ect.. ALL have their life cycles peaking during full and new moons. Larger peaks are statistically found during new moons. (hatching) so basically whats happening is that during full and new moons the activity in the water is at its highest level. Bass are turned on to feed and when it sees your lure its presentation looks more natural. any other questions feel free to ask
If anyone would like to know why bass as well as other predatory fish feed on full/new moons I will give you the scientific reasons why. Also for tacticalbassin I watch your videos a lot and maybe even you can learn something. being a graduated bio major I have taken many courses on relating to aquatic biology. So sums things up quickly, the average person will say, “oh the bass just have an internal clock and they just know to feed on certain times” WRONG. It is called the circadian rhythm. >>
Love your vids Matt, so informative! Great job like always!
Yea so does a smart phone
You can buy a $30 fishing wrist watch called the Casio Pathfinder Fishing Timer that will actually figure out what is the best time to put the bait in the water by calculating the moon phase, sunrise, and sunset for you. It also comes with a vibrating hourly signal and vibrating alarm so only you know when it is the best time to put the bait in the water if you are in a big fishing group. lol.
GREAT INFO PRESENTED WELL. ACTUALLY BEEN WORKING THIS SAME STUFF FOR BIG TROUT IN CO. THE ABSOLUTE BIGGEST FISH THAT ARE PRESSURED ALL DAY LONG CAN BE MUCH MORE EASILY FOOLED AT NIGHT. GOOD STUFF. CHECK OUT MY VIDEOS. SPIN FISHING AND FLY FISHING LG ROCKY MOUNTAIN TROUT.
Thanks for that, you explain it well, love all your videos, you’re a very smart fisherman, preciate for sharing your knowledge buddy
finaly some moon phase info gosh i wish i could figure out how to work the moon phase
finaly some moon phase info
I just never even looked at the phases, funny I started reading what they said would be the best days. I caught most of my fish on the worst days of the month according to the charts. The best days I did so so. I am doing a vid on my experience of moon phases, maybe its just me but now I am back to not really even looking at them.
i know ur a hell of a fisherman …been a wheil im subbed to you….fish 30 days a month ….. i never used to belleive in it …but me and my friend noted 5 years of fishing …. i now beleive in the moon phase….. i also believe huge fish can be caught anytime
Been fishing for bass 30 years, never followed moon phases or astro tables. Still catch better bass even when those that follow these things fail.
Matt I kept stumbling across your videos, and after was always being impressed with the quality and breadth of great material you cover I subscribed. Love this channel, can’t wait for some new vids
I do most of my fishing primarily at night. Thanks for the advice. I’ll be out tonight and throughout the remainder of the long weekend. Tight lines!
I appreciate the disclaimer. I’m definitely one of those guys that gets out whenever he can get out, but it’s only once every couple weeks. I have a daughter that’s just under a year old and I try to spend as much time with her as possible. But some days, she’s in bed for the night at 7pm and I head out to my nearest lake to fish up to an hour into the night or more if I’m lucky enough for it to occur on the weekend.
I’ve enjoyed all of your videos but decided to skip this one as suggested.
Do you think night fishing is better than sun rise fishing
moon phases impact insect/bug activity which stirs up the whole ecosystem. Big bass take adavnatage of these occasions and put on the feed bag—-lol just a theory
very helpful video thanks
As always, awesome videos Matt!!!!
Nice good info
awesome vid matt!
