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.

That may be true DFA but i have also noticed that a lot more run on a bright night then on a dark night. not saying you are wrong, thats just my opinion...

X-Shark (10/15/2007)Still, Those are some beautiful nights to be on the water. :)
Like MR said a lot safer too.

So we all agree that bright moon nights might not be a good night to go,so everyone should stay home on those nights :poke:)
