Default Spooky in the Gulf

10/15 Went to the gulf last night 11:30-1:00 and seen a few fish. Can anyone tell me why I couldn't get within 20 feet of them? Light setup is a Led work light 12v on a PVC pipe 8'' above the water, water was clear and 3ft deep.

Who knows why ? I had the same thing happen to us also, some ran others laid still, buried or not, but they do seem to stay put if buried.
Also we lost many waiting only a few seconds for my video camera to turn on, about 6 seconds I think was the max time you could wait to gig before they ran on us.
