THE   MOON   AND   FISHING
COARSE  FISHING  WITH  THE  ESSEX  ANGLER






What if the moon could dictate if you have a successful angling session or a blank ! Well Chris Lyons has researched this for 5 years, and by calculating the lunar orbit he can determine precisely when you can have more chances of hooking a big fish.This is because the fish feeding times or more or less governed by the lunar orbit

If you keep a detailed diary of your catches, the feeding periods will appear random, favouring toward dusk. If you was to add the moons cycle to the equation, a pattern will immediately be seen. It can then be noted that the position and phase of the moon is the real and overriding factor governing fish activity.
Other factors will enhance or reduce activity when coupled with this, but one thing is certain these factors DO NOT induce feeding.
There are no "cast iron guarrantees", determining daily peak times and feeding periods are just to aid your chances.

Chris has documented over 3,400 specimen fish (mainly barbel), and including many British records. He concluded that over 96% were caught on "key days" of the lunar orbit.

The moon follows the same pattern - New moon, First quarter, Full moon, Last quarter, (NM,FQ,FM,LQ,)
The peak days are 3 or 4 around these, i.e. NM +1 is 1 day after the new moon, and so on.
One moon cycle takes an average of 24 hours and 50 minutes.
Feeding periods occur at moonrise and moonset. The upper and lower transit times, (highest point & lowest orbit), are halfway between moonrise and moonset. These are the times when its energies are most intense. Therefore to increase the chances of a catch, you need to be fishing 90 minutes before "rise" or "set", or two hours before transit times.
The best two periods are "HP" to "SET" or "LO" to "RISE".
The most active fish at these times are carp, barbel, tench, roach, pike, catfish, and big eels.
