There’s an old saying on wind direction which has many variations but here's the most popular which I'm sure you've heard: “Wind from the West, fish bite the best. Wind from the East, fish bite the least. Wind from the North, do not go forth. Wind from the South blows bait in their mouth.” Its less so about the direction but the cause for the direction.

Moon Phase

  • Updated Just Now

Moon phases have split fishing folk's opinion straight down the middle with the bigger impact on saltwater fishing but some freshwater anglers swear their catch improves when the moon is in a "New" or "Full" moon phase. These phases cause bigger tides making fish more active and susceptible to feeding meaning an opportunity for you to nab a catch. Muskegon River is currently under a "Waning Crescent" phase which means its less optimal fishing time.
