The new moons in Feb, July and August are also partial eclipses of the sun, although not visible in North America.

 

The July full moon is also a total eclipse of the moon, but again, not visible in North America.

If you're looking at moon charts for best fishing--my experience in the surf is that you want the sun and moon to rise at the same time. If your conditions are otherwise good... bam! It's on.

You really want to detail Perigee for yr locale - doesn't always coincide w/full moons ...

Quite correct...and that is why the "super" moons (both full and new) were listed above by Paul. But throughout the entire year, perigee varies thru the entire lunar cycle.

 

You will notice that the "super" new moons are about 7 months after the couple "super" full moons we have had in the past couple of months. That will take a number of years (I would need to calculate) to progress into the super new moons being in the winter. when that happens, the tides will be even more extreme in December and January.
