Ecuador. Calendar of aguajes and lunar phase year 2020, April

April 2020 Moon Phases Calendar. Fishing lunar calendar is a convenient tool for choosing the day of the lunar month with the best catch. Experienced fishermen notice that their catch depends on the lunar phase. The Moon is the source of light in the dark of the night. 

The lunar month is conventionally divided into periods in accordance with the phases – New Moon, waxing Moon, Full Moon, and the waning Moon. New Moon is the most unfavorable phase for fishing. Waxing Moon is the phase in which the catch begins to stabilize. Full moon in fishing is the most unpredictable phase. At this time, small fish often activates, and it repels the bait of the big fish and distracts the predators. Waning Moon – here it is, the peak of a month’s catch! And the longest! The best days for fishing begin two days after the full moon and lasts just over a week.
