How do you pick the best time to go fishing?. Do you head out depending on the tides or moon phases? I used to purchase a "Fishing Almanac" from the newsagent years ago produced by Alvey (small yellow booklet) that gave you the best time to fish or hunt based on the tides & moon phases with major & minor feeding times. Used it a fair bit & kept records in it of catches made & it seemed to be reasonably accurate although I was only fishing inland. These days there are apps for smartphones that do the same thing & I have been trialing one to see if it helps. The one I use is Fishing & Hunting Solunar Time - https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.antonnikitin.solunarforecast&hl=en There are other considerations besides the tides & moon, barometric pressure & water temps, sunrise & sunset come into play as well & then there are the old sayings such as "When the winds from the east, the fish bite the least" Interested to know how you pick a time to fish or is it just pot luck?
