I always hear people saying, "nah i aint goin fishin' this weekend its a full moon. "nah theirs no fish out their today is the full moon". How does the moon affect fishing? Does it make the tide faster, resulting in more lead to hold bottom? Do the fish not feed on a certain moon phase??? I like you guys to share comments about this and tell if you have had decent results fishing the full moon????

I like the moons for all fish. Brings out the big ones. If you have trouble holding bottom when drifting, try a sea anchor. A sea anchor (or drone) will keep the speed of the boat the same as the current. You bait should move at the current speed along the bottom.
