I allways try to check the Solunar Calendar. From my personal experience i have found that the "best times" for fishing are pretty much dead on. It's allways best to fish on a full/ new moon phase. A day or two before or a day or two after is best. The times a.m./ p.m. are also true too, sometimes it's like the dinner bell just rang when in proximity to the "best times" a.m. or p.m. The solunar calendar is found in the Farmer's Almanc. which i have used numerous time, and in numerous fishing magazines. Hope this helps. Good luck!
