How long does it take for the moon to cross the sky from moon-rise to moon-set?
About 12 hours but depends how far you are from the equator and the time of the year. At the poles the moon does not set in mid-summer and does not rise at all mid-winter!
The duration from moonrise to moonset is cyclic on the lunar cycle, and is surprisingly variable over this short period. For example in March 2010 for Phoenix AZ it varies from a bit more than 9.5 to almost 15.25 hours. This is because the moon's orbit around the earth is at a 5° tilt relative to the earth's orbit around the sun
For exact times deduct the moonset time from the moonrise time given at one of these:
No. Time time of moonrise and moonset changes each day. It is important to note, however, that the moon is always up, 24 hours a day. The only difference is that during the day that the moon is strongly outshone by the Sun and therefore difficult to see. The terms in the above answer, specifically "moonrise" and "moonset", are described the times when the moon becomes easily visible and when it begins to be overshadowed…
Each night the moon rise changes, So.... If you go to timeanddate.com, you can select a location in the drop-down menu and see times for moonrise and moonset in that location. Also provided is local time when the Moon passes the meridian with distance, fraction of the Moon illuminated and moon phase.
How long does it take for a spot on Earth that is facing the moon to rotate so that is facing the moon again?

The moon rises in the east and sets in the west following the same general pattern as the sun. The exact point of moonrise (and sunrise) moves, and the point of sunrise and moonrise are not not necessarily the same point. The same is true for the point of sunset and moonset. This is because of the tilt in the earth's axis, and the fact that the moon does not orbit earth directly above earth's…
You can use the US Naval Observatory's Sunrise Sunset calculator to find the time of sunrise, sunset, moonrise, moonset and phase of the moon for any date and place.

a full moon can make a big difference depending on what your fishing for. for instance if your fishing for wahoo or spawning marlin a full moon can be one of the best times of the month to catch them depending on tides and moonrise/moonset times and weather conditions ie right before or after a storm can be really amazing fishing.
