Default August bassin on a full moon

Had a really slow day of catching this morning. I was on the river before daylight hoping to find some smallies hitting topwater in the shallows before the sun got high. I've never been one to follow the moon phases but the last couple of times that I have fished during a full moon time period, it as been very slow. Anyone plan their trips around moon phases or like me, you fish when you can and hope for the best?
I fished from 6am till 11am and caught 4 little smallies (12" and under) and a couple of little redbreast. I enjoy any time I can get out on the water these days so no complaints from me! Anyone else have a tough day on the rivers today and if so, do you think the full moon had anything to do with it?
