Winter Wahoo

Looking at upcoming dates and trying to coordinate with the moon phases, would you agree that the 3 days before the full moon is usually most productive? also december, january or february?

I usually shoot over and fish the edge at least once during the winter, but being back in school, trying to optimize my trip..

Thanks.

    The strongest tide (spring tide) happens around the new and/or full moon...This occurs anywhere about 3 days prior or after the new/full moon...Look at a moon and tide chart to find the exact date.

    The spring tide is a good time to target Hoos...However, it is only one factor in the overall equation for a good bite...There are other factors that can trump the strong tide bite and cause lock jaw with the Hoo's...like a high pressure system, strong unfavorable winds in certain locations, cold water temps, etc.
