The Moon

Click for moon phases

It is no secret that the moon has a very present effect on fish and in particular, Florida saltwater gamefish. Roughly 15 days of each and every month feature stronger tides than the other days. This occurs around the major moon periods of the full and dark moon. In addition to tide strengths, the moon also plays a key effect on gamefish movement and feeding habits. It really takes a lifetime to develop an understanding of gamefish habits during different phases of the moon and the different months of the year. This information is provided as a basic guide for reference in your trip planning. Please keep in mind that tides are merely predictions. On any given day they can be significantly different in height, strength, and time due to other natural variables. The same being true of gamefish habits.
