It never fails. Fish the morning after an all night full moon and you’ll get a slow bite or no bite at all… This trip was a textbook example of this theory. We were able to find plenty of bait along the beach north of the inlet at first light. Saw large numbers of small and huge snook along the beach too. We thought we were going to crush then back at our intended fishing spots. All the bait was right against the beach and it was a little nerve-racking maneuvering a 26ft center console 20 yards off the sand. But after a few selective net tosses our live well was full and we were off to our first spot.
We fished all the well known public spots around the inlet and saw at least 100+ of snook and some had to be in the 25 pound range. Unfortunately we were only able to bag one fish that probably weighed 8 lbs.
I think the on the nighttime full moon the fish feed all night and by morning they are full. Makes me wonder when I see a huge fish swim right by a helpless greenie and not eat it. Well, thats my story and I’m sticking to it.
