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

Where you fish.
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.
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.

Finally, a change in the local weather coinciding with the periods will further enhance
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.

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.
