Curious.....if you do not fish at nite........does " new or full" moon make a difference......I understand the extreme tides but other than that would it impact fish patterns during daylite..........

Theres your impact^^

 

Think about bait progression and how theyre affected by the moons and currents that are associated with a moon tide.

 

Shellfish are more likely to shed around the moons which creates a ton of easy meals that smell like roast turkey on thanksgiving for the bass. Theres more nutrients in the water from the tides in the back pulling from the sods and rocks and the stronger currents bring those nutrients around which will entice baitfish to group and feed heavily. Pair that with the idea that bait fish will struggle in stronger currents associated with the moon tides around inlets. This creates a lot of easy meals for the predators

^^^  Very good post here 

to add tide table Height / Ft is something pay attention to or learn   negative -  and  + positive  tides factor in catching also 

Sudsy nice to get things going here

Most of the fish we catch in the spring in NJ target bunker- in the bays, rivers, and ocean- this is their preferred and main food supply.  Not talking about the 15 inchers you will find on the beach right now.  I'm referring to the fish that will hit a big swimmer way up top, a big jig, a chunk, a big popper...this is what the fish we can easily fool will eat.  Those baits like to move against the current (for whatever reason).  It could be currents driven by a strong moon tide, or even wind driven currents.  Its gets their food supply moving and in turn its gets those fish moving and chasing them  up current.  Bunker don't understand they need to be in the back of rivers and bays in spring- they have no schedule.  They move against current at all times and they'll keep following it to wherever it takes them and the bass are not far behind.  Current speed is the one thing that we can sort of predict given the wind and the moon to help focus our fishing time and put in  the effort during the most optimal times.  If you think throwing stuff at fish popping on shrimp and garbage feeding on tiny crabs is fun, then enjoy your time spent pissing up a rope.

They dont just enjoy swimming into the current because its fun. They are filter feeders so they need to swim into the current to feed on the plankton and microscopic nutrients in the water. Bunker always swim against a strong wind right?! Stronger currents causes more plankton and micro shrimp and garbage to be pushed thorugh our waterways
