Fishing Solunar Times and Moon Times for Fishing | Moon Phases and Bass Fishing

January 14, 2020


Glenn: Hey folks! Glenn May here with BassResource.com and I’m
here with Hank Parker sitting in his boat, doing our weekly fishing tips with questions
that are submitted to Hank to answer for him right on this channel. This week, this question comes from Bill Playfoot,
from Chatham, Ontario in Canada and he asks simply “Do moon times really help or is that
just a confidence thing?” Hank: Well, I’m going to tell you Bill that’s
a great question and all of these questions we’ve been answering now for several hours
just a list of questions from all of you BassResource followers and subscribers… great, great
questions and yes the moon Bill I think plays a big role. I do think that that whole solunar table I
think it’s a lot of merit there, I never paid any attention to it because I didn’t want
it to mentally affect me and make me negative on a day that there was no minor feeding time,
it was all negative or I didn’t want to set my strategies based on a major. Because let me tell you, half of the fish
that I catch as a fisherman are impulsed bites, they’re not necessarily feeding fish so that
fish may not be in an aggressive feeding mode, I’m around that spinnerbait up there and bump
that stump and he’s kind up there in the shade and I entice him as a predator in taking that
bait. So it doesn’t have anything to do with him
being aggressively feeding. I caught that fish when he really wasn’t even
thinking about feeding perhaps out of impulse. So I try not to let all of the solunar information
play a role in my mental outlook on fishing. People say “Well do you like to fish early,
midnight or late?”, I always say “Go early, stay ’til late and if it happens you’ll be
there,” that’s always my philosophy. But if you’re one of those guys that has that
four letter word in your life, that three letter word I should say, that J-O-B, if you’ve
got one of those and you want to base your most productive vacation time or time a day
you can take off, it is definitely worthwhile to look at the solunar table and look for
the majors and the minors, because I have seen over the years it does play out to be
accurate. Glenn: Well Bill, there’s your answer, hope
that helps. For more tips and tricks go to hankparker.com

    Whats up Glen. I haven't seen any winners from your video giveaways. Am I missing something?

    I have a j-o-b so unfortuantely the lunar chart is irrelevant. I just have high hopes that every time I can fish it'll be a good day!

    I am retired and fish early morning and don't pay much attention to moon phases but do pay attention to coming fronts and temperature changes. Love Hank Parker's fishing tips so keep them coming

    That is some great advice right there!

    I've known a lot of good fishermen who believed in the Solunar Tables and have always had faith in it myself. That being said I caught my personal best largemouth on the worst day of the month at the worst time of day!
