MAJOR FEEDING TIMES  =  MOON TRANSIT TIME.
ADD 12 1/2 HOURS FOR SECOND MAJOR
 FOR THAT 24 HOUR PERIOD.
MINOR FEEDING TIMES  =  MOONRISE & MOONSET

 The Moon Calculator calculates
 the "Moon Transit" time.
This is the First Major Feeding Time
 for where you are fishing or hunting.

The Second Major for that 24 hour period
will be approximately 12 1/2 hours latter.

Sun and moon rise and set have a direct effect on the feeding
 activities of fish and game in all parts of the world.

There is a definite correlation of feeding activities
when the moon is straight overhead, (Moon Transit)
  and or on the opposite side of the earth.

With the Moon Calculator you can know all of these times
anywhere in the U.S. and plan your fishing activities around
 these times, the moon phases and the weather.

There are a lot of good solunar tables:

But, they can never be printed to be accurate for exactly where you are fishing.

The Moon Calculator can give you accurate times for any town close to where you will be fishing.
 
Most Major feeding times last from 2 to 2.5 hours and Minor feeding times last from 1 to 1.5 hours.

This process will help you determine when the fish are going to be most active on any given day.
 Where you fish.

GOOD FISHING!

PEAK DAYS

It is known that the sun and moon are the two major sources
of the astral energies that daily bombard the Earth and all her life forms.
The closer they are to you at any given moment, the stronger the influence.
The day of a NEW or FULL MOON will provide the strongest influence in each month.

PEAK TIMES

When a Solunar Period falls within 30 minutes to an hour of sunrise or sunset you can anticipate great action!
When you have a moonrise or moonset during that period the action will be even greater.
And, finally, when the above times occur during a NEW or FULL MOON,
you can expect the best action of the season! PEAK DAYS

BEST FISHING DAYS

These are the Major or Minor Solunar Periods that fall near the times of Sunrise or Sunset during a Full or New Moon.
 
It has been documented that when this condition exists fish will bite almost anything they see or smell.
 Limits are almost a sure bet, provided there are fish in the vicinity.
 
It's no secret that fish and game tend to feed during dawn and dusk (sunrise and sunset).
What amplifies the activity is the effect of a moonrise or moonset plus the specific
monthly periods of New (dark) and Full (light) Moons.
 When these times coincide with a moon-rise or a moon-set the fishing action can be spectacular.
Finally, a change in the local weather coinciding with the periods will further enhance the activity.

PEAK MONTH

June always has more combined sun-moon influence than any other month.
During a FULL MOON the sun and moon are nearly opposite each other
 and very few minutes pass without one or the other being in our sky.
During a NEW MOON, both bodies are in near-perfect rhythm traveling the skies together with their forces combined.
 Because of the interaction between the many lunar and solar cycles, no two days, months or years are identical.

WATCH THE WEATHER

Every day will not show a clear-cut reaction to a Solunar Period.
All wildlife knows what to expect of the weather, and any bird, animal or fish can sense the approach of a storm.
Adverse temperature, abnormal water conditions, all sorts of things will offset the effects of Solunar Periods.
However, every sportsman knows that it is beyond all reason to expect good fishing or hunting every day.
The Solunar Theory will point the way to the best that each day has to offer, but in no sense is it a guarantee.

WATCH THE BAROMETER

Intensity of activity also varies from day to day, according to conditions in general.
If the barometer happens to be steady or rising, if the temperature is favorable
 (15 degrees higher than water temp)
Then a long and active response to a Solunar Period can be expected.

GRAVITATIONAL TIDE TIMES

The times of low and high tides if the Earth were completely covered by water.
There is one day each month (near the last quarter of the moon) on which there is no moonrise.
This is normal and occurs because the moon's average period between two rises and sets
is approximately 24 hours and 50 minutes.
Thus there will always be a day on which a moonrise (and a Solunar Time) will not fit.
Note also that moonrise can occur at any time during the day or night.

CONCLUSION

It goes without saying that if there are no fish present, you will not be successful.
Plan your days on the water so that you are where the fish are most likely to be during the Solunar Periods.

I hope that this has helped you to understand the Solunar Theory
and how you can use it to improve your Fishing success.
