Default tide vs. moon vs. temp

What seems to be the most determining factor in wether or not your going to see fish? I have heard so many different things from so many different people, but I would like to know what you guys think and why.

I am somewhat of a young gun around here, but for what its worth I dont think I have ever had a good night on a full or nearly full moon. That being said it could just be coincidence or there could be something to it, but I would like to know what you guys think.

I have heard some guys say "dont waste your time if the tide is not comming in" but I have not had enough experiance to see any sort of accurate pattern between productivity and tides, but it makes sense to me that incomming tide would be the most productive.

Thoughts and opinions?

This... you never know until you go honestly...

but if you want to try to figure out what seems to be the more determining factor in your fishing trials... start keeping a trip journal.... Write down time/date/weather/temp/tide/moon phase and what baits/techniques you used... after a while you'll start to see some patterns

It doesn't matter to me. Rising tide and no moon is the best. But I've killed fish on all tide and moon phases. Full moons seem to make the fish a little spooky though. I do want the tide to be moving not slack.

WATER CLAIRITY. If it's dirty you can't see them even if they are there.

Mark, that's definitely the case right now. I tried it the other night and only had about a ft at best.
