The Idea of creating a website that could automatically remind me and you of good fishing days
Those days with little or no bites are past. Of course it is not enough to rely only on those Best Times alone, as they are no guarantee that fish will bite.
The theory for the best bite times is based on the lunar influence on animal activity.
Many fishermen know that for some reason fish get specially hungry at certain times of the day and night.
The peak or major feeding periods seem to occur when the Moon is either directly overhead or underfoot.
To work out those times one obviously needs to know the exact time of moonrise and moon set for his favorite fishing spot.
Fishing Reminder will take care of this and all one needs to do is select a position on a map to find the best fishing time.
Fishing Reminder will detect the timezone of the selected location and also adjust times to daylight savings.
There are different Theories for the best fishing days in one month.
The old ancient Maori Fishing Calendar for instance has a specific rating for each day of the moon cycle.
The Maori fisherman knew on which days the fish would bite hard and when they wouldn't take even the juiciest bait.
He knew that fish would most likely begin feeding up to one hour either side of the peak feeding times.
He also knew that those peak periods did not necessarily coincide with dawn and dusk (though these were usually also reasonable times)
Other important things he would consider were:
But no matter what the Maori calendar is saying, you must always consider all the other factors including tides, weather, water, wind, temperature, etc.
The smart angler takes all those things into consideration and records them along other details in his log book.
