Fishing World Records and Moon Phases

I could not go fishing this weekend, so I decided to do a little research that some of you may find interesting. I took the dates of 545 World Record fish, and fed them to a moon phase calculator, to find the moon phase for each one. Here are the results:

Full Moon 85

New Moon 84

First Quarter Moon 83

Waxing Gibbous Moon 69

Waning Gibbous Moon 66

Waning Crescent Moon 59

Last Quarter Moon 50

Waxing Crescent Moon 49

 

Looks like more monsters are indeed caught on a Full and New moon.
