Default Full Moon Flounderin

Alot of giggers say that flounderin during a full moon is not advised. I believe they say that to keep others from goin.
I think the fish come into shallow water so they can see the moon too.
That is just my random redneck thoughts on the matter.
Anyway, the good Lord blessed me with a beautiful full moon Friday nite, calm conditions and clear water. He also allowed me to get my limit for a second time this year, although I would have been happy with any amount of fish. Got on the water at 1am and was done and back home by 5am. Most of the fish came from 6"-8" of water near the beach and on sandbars.
One fish had an interesting shape. See pic. Looked to me like it was developed that way as I did not see any scares or blemishes that would indicate and attack by a predator.

They are just more spooky on a full moon and will often run from you.

That one was definitely odd shaped. You would think that it was a result of injury, but I can't imagine one surviving a wound that cause that.

Ether way, good job gigging.
