New Moons Can Cause Strong Currents That Put The Fish Off

February 19, 2024
Some days, fishing is just tough. Friday was one of those days. Brody (the amazing fish-finding and stock-trading dog) had an appointment with the veterinarian. Given my recent health issues, Brody insisted that I not fish alone. So, I asked my old friend Brian Newby to join.
Brian is a skilled angler and I expected we would catch a bunch of fish. However, the new moon tides and no fish-finding dog conspired against us.
New moon tides are unusually high and low. This results in significant water movement and very strong currents. Sometimes, these conditions put the fish off. On Friday, the fish would half-heartedly strike our lures and we would not hook up.
