Lunar Influences The Moon Part one,

Monday, May 24th, 2010

CONSIDER THIS; when the moon is directly overhead, the ground beneath our feet is raised as much as a foot. If lunar gravity can influence the solid ground that much, just think what effect it must have on water and on fish that live there. Many anglers believe that most fish spawning activity is somehow keyed to the full or dark moon. Records confirm these times as the periods of strongest tides as well as of volcanic eruptions and earthquakes. When compared with complete lunar data, the international gamefish Associations world records set over a ten year period indicate that 73 percent of these fish were caught within a three day period on either side of the day of a full or new moon. In fact the long standing 1932 world record largemouth came just two days before a full a moon. Bass Fishing Orlando Florida.

A 6 to 7 foot, medium-heavy power, long-handled baitcasting rod is recommended for making the long cast that are necessary with this technique. There is no need for a high-speed reel, a 5 to 1 gear ratio is adequate. Spool up with 12-to 15-pound test,abrasion-resistant monofilament. Bass Fishing Orlando Florida.

Recommended Tackle For Prop Baits

Monday, May 10th, 2010

A medium-power, medium-action baitcasting rod will do a nice job of imparting action to most prop baits. Your reel should be capable of making long cast with fairly heavily line, say 14- or 17-pound mono. The heavy line is necessary to keep the bait waltzing on the surface. Thinner lines tend to sink and pull the nose of these lures under. In the summer and spring is a good time for prop baits in Orlando, Kissimmee, and Disney, and Central Florida.
