I have coordinated my fishing trips around the New Moon with the next one being Oct.27th. The solunar cycle surveys this day as an all-day potential bite. Of course, forecasting with only that in mind defies cooperation from the weather. A positive menu would include a ENE 10 to 15 breeze, a polite 2′ to 4′ sea and a stable or falling barometer. Additionally, knowing the water temp at different beaches is truly advantageous!
