Do we have on the TNO site anything with a calendar with Major and Minor Feeding Times? If not does anyone have a site on the web?

TNO has a great weather page here. Tides on there based on location. The feed times coinside with the tides (lunar tables). If I remember correctly the major feed is when the moon is over-head and under-foot. The minor feed is when the moon is on either horizon.

That's about it, Necked.... Here's the total skinny;

OK... Back in 1926, this guy named John Knight came up with this idea, and determined there were around 33 factors that might influence animal feeding times. Through careful examination, these factors were eliminated one by one, and all that were left were the sun, the moon, and the tides. These influence what are called PEAK times. Here's how it works.

Major feeding periods occur when the moon is directly overhead, or directly under foot (overhead directly on the opposite side of the earth from you). Minor feeding times are right before moonrise or moonset. When those times coenside within about an hour either side of sunrise or sunset, the effect is amplified significantly. This explains the major and minor peaks. From our moon chart on our weather page, you can calculate the major peaks by simply adding or subtracting 6 hours from moonrise or moonset times.

The days in a given month where there is a full or new moon, also amplifies these effects, and are the best fishing days of any given month. When moonrise and moonset coinsides with sunrise or sunset, the effect is enhanced even more. These would be the very best days of the month to fish at sunrise and sunset.

June is THE month where the combine gravitational forces are combined, where during the full moon, the earth and moon are on opposite sides of the earth, and during the new moon their forces are combined since they are rotating together and their gravities are combined.

So, guys and gals, on the days that moonrise and moonset coinside with sunrise and sunset in the month of June during the full moon phase days and the new moon days, THOSE would be the best days and times of the year to take off from work a few days and fish like a maniac!!!
