Default Another moon night, with an eclipse @ sunrise.

zero wind, figured I'd go to a different spot I've had really good success before. Low tide was at 2:30am here, so I figured I would sneak in early like the other night and get the stragglers held close to shore by the giant moon.

Apparently, these fish 15miles north didn't like that idea... So I putzed around for 2 hours getting a few here and there and one that went 7lbs he saved the day.

All together 37 fish.


On another note: The other night the fish seemed brain dead with the full moon @ low tide. Tonight on outgoing/low tide they jumped the boat numerous times before I could even see them. Must be the smart ones ;P

Saw zero sheeps and drum, However tons of reds' and a few triple Tail

No, tripletail can not be netted, speared, or snatched.
