The Flounder "Can" be a little spookier at a Full Moon. The 25th is Full Moon.

Yes when there is a bright moon above you in the sky the flounder can see you. So when you see a flounder better gig him fast. Especially if you see him quiver a little. he's getting ready to bolt.

I don't think the moon has anything to do with whether they hold are not. I've had them sit-tight on bright and dark nights. I think it depends on how long the flounders been settled in the spot when you pull up on him.
