Did you know that there is an ideal time to go fishing? That’s right there are actually days and times that are better to go fishing than other times of the month or year. The best times to head out and go fishing are of course the times when the fish are most active. This all depends on the sun, moon, tides and weather. Fish feed more often at sunrise and sunset, this is why you most often see fishermen setting out in the early morning. They are also very active during a full moon, when the tides are high. Fishing is typically best during a new moon and full moon; these dates are fairly easy to determine and if you can work your schedule around them then you will most definitely have a successful fishing trip. To determine when these times are check a moon phase calendar. Have your tackle box packed and ready to go so that when these times come about you are ready to go, and be prepared for long days with early starts. If you have the patience and determination you will surely get a good catch. There are also locations that are better for fishing than others. We’ll talk about those next.
