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. Mississippi River is currently under a "First Quarter" phase which means its more favorable fishing time.
