I met a lot of my best friends while charter fishing on Lake Michigan over the course of 25 years. One guy I really enjoyed fishing with was John Kosmala. He and his Mom would come fishing with me a couple times a year and I always looked forward to it. The great part was that there was no pressure. It was always a laid back kind of day.
John was a firm believer in the solunar tables. I would be in a panic if we didn’t have our typical morning flurry, but John would say “Don’t worry. There’s a minor feeding time at 9:30.” And more often than not, we’d get four or five bites around that time and box several fish. Next he’d announce, “There’s a major feeding period at 11:30.” Normally, Great Lakes trolling is slow at midday, but more often than not John’s prediction would come to fruition and we’d have a frantic period of activity that would leave us with a pretty heft box of fish when things didn’t start out so good. It happened too often to be more than just coincidence.
Serious sportsmen know that fish and game are most active at first and last light, but there are other times of peak activity that are closely tied to the moon phase, length of day, position of the sun, tides, etc… With a limited amount of time to be on the water or in the field why not hedge your bet and be out there when game and fish are likely to be most active?
“Our system shows outdoor enthusiasts how to make the best use of limited time,” added Lehman. “For over 80 years we have produced The Fish and Game Forecast and Hannon’s Moon Clock to help everyone know the times that they are most likely to catch or see fish, birds and wildlife. The most successful outdoor experiences have been proven to occur during periods of peak animal activity and we can predict when these periods will occur by understanding effects of the moon and sun on the earth and how this affects all living things.
The 44th year of the Fish and Game Forecaster ($11.95 plus shipping and handling) and the 36th year of Moon Clock Calculator ($9.95 plus shipping and handling) are ready to be shipped. Anglers, hunters, bird watchers and wildlife enthusiasts can also load their smartphones through the Apple Store or Google Play with FishCast or HuntCast 2017 (from The Fish and Game Forecaster) or FishTimes or HuntTimes 2017 (from Hannon’s Moon Clock).
