Fish Feeding Predictions
Based on Solunar Theory
EZFishing helps you find the best fishing days and times at any location in United States, based on the Solunar theory.
For any fishing location, EZFishing users can:

EZFishing Feeding and Weather Weekly forecasts mashes up daily fish feeding predictions and weather forecasts, at any location in United States.
For each day the forecast provides information about Feeding Prediction & Times, Weather Forecasts as well as Moon and Sun Statistics.
EZFishing Feeding Times Monthly Calendar provides forecasts for the best fishing days, at any location in United States.
For each day, the calendar shows both the Fish Feeding Prediction and the Major and Minor Feeding Periods.
Starting in 1926, John Alden Knight studied which factors may influence behavior of fresh or saltwater fish that caused them to be periodically more active.
Initially, Knight evaluated 33 different factors. Over time he realized that among them the influence of Sun and Moon (and secondarily tides) where - by far - the most important ones. From that research, this avid and curious fly fisherman created his Solunar Theory (Sol = sun, Lunar = moon).
Eventually Knight discovered that, over the course of a day, the times when the Moon is passing over a given location (Moon Up) or is passing the same meridian but on opposite side of Earth with respect to its observer (Moon Down) are affecting fish feeding habits the most, and he was able to compute the Major Feeding Periods.
Then, he realized that there were also other periods during the day, called Minor Feeding Periods, when the fish is actively feeding.
In fact, both Moon and Sun positions should be taken into account to calculate the Major and Minor Feeding Periods for a day. So, during the course of a month, certain days are better than others because the action of sun and moon are working together, while in other days they are challenging each other and therefore have less impact on fish willingness to feed.
Based on these observation, Knight was also able to find a way to predict which days in a month are potentially the best fishing days.
