    Agree.

    This toppling by crowds is unsettling and is a distinct thing from the reasons for toppling. It is an act in itself.

    Well, I make it a point to fish every moon tide, the extra current brings on the bite. My observation is higher/lower tides and more current during a full moon.

    Full moon tides are bigger than new moon tides.. ( sun and moon opposite sides of earth)

    I don't think the sun has much to do with it; the moon is what creates tide.
