Fish can see better with the increase in night light during a full. That fact alone makes nocturnal feeders like bass more apt to take advantage of the full moon, but it's also what's going on with their forage that sparks interest. Crawfish, shad, and bream increase activity levels around full moons, too, and that creates a recipe for easier pickins. Though I can’t say fishing this moon phase guarantees you big fish, don’t pass up the opportunity to get on the water — not only at night, but also during the days preceding and following the full moon. In the past I've noticed shallow fishing that’s been good only gets better when the moon is shining bright.
