7-23-2013 Bright moon = bad fishing

As we set off on our trip early yesterday morning (7-22).  We were greated by a very bright night light in the sky.  As beautiful as it was, I knew it might have negative effects on our day.  The full moon fishing during the morning/day has a reputation of being somewhat slow at times.  Although, there have been plenty of occasions we have gone out only to have extremely successful days during the full moon.  You can never tell for sure and most of us are going to go fishing regardless.  

At our first stop, the exact spot that we were catching redfish after redfish just the day before, at about the same time, the only fish we could muster were a Jack and a Blue.  We headed over to Jones cut and had a few good topwater blow ups but no hook ups.  We then shot back into the basin and managed a nice mid slot Redfish and a Snook.  We lost a few fish there as well.  From there we went up river to pluck off another Snook and a fat Mangrove Snapper.  We had a few suspected Tarpon takes but no hookups.  And that was our morning.  Not the best, not the worst.
