Default Full moon

How much does the full moon play on the Speck fishing ?? We went yesterday and we caught a few specks. Didnt seem to be alot, but the ones we did catch seemed to be quality fish. Just wondering what you all thought about it.Thanks

Default RE: Full moon

I'm not sure but I believe it has to have some type of adverse affect. Me and a buddy went fishing on Wednesday night which was the first night of the full moon and it was terrible. Beautiful weather, perfect water temp and moon light was so bright you could see forever. We did not catch the first spec but caughta boat load of 6-8 inch sweet trout. I will be keeping an eye on this post because I am very curious as well. Hope both of our next trips are better lol

First off let me say that the following is only my opinion and not based on any scientific study; only my own observations. I have done a lot of trout fishing at night and usually avoid it during times when there is a full moom or close to it. I believe that all predator fish can see bait fish more easily during a bright night. They stay near the bottom andsilhouette the bait by looking up at it and then attack. When it is so easy for them to spot bait and they can feed wherever they want to they do and their bellies are full there is not a reason to attack a lure or bait attached to a line. I'm not saying not to fish on a full moom, but it can be a frustrating experience.
