After reading another post I have to ask this question and maybe its already on here somewhere.

How does full moons affect the crappie bite. It seems to me that when the moon is full and bright the bite actually slows. This is based on only about 2-3 outing with full moons but hey, give us your opinion.

Maybe I was using the wrong presentation.

I've had bad luck with full moon myself. :(

I agree with Papasage. From my fishing experience on nite stalks I can tell ya the crappie shut off when the water lights up. If the moon comes up late you're alright...if it's up and shining when it gets dark dont look for large numbers of fish.
