Curse of the full moon…. Not!

Early morning run on the Halifax ICW

Spent most of the morning catching and not fishing with new clients Kassie and Kainen who are down here visiting from Louisiana.  I was a little leary about the full moon conditions but the fish were active as could be.  We started things off by catching Kainens largest fish to date, a big Black Drum.

It might not be huge to my or your standards but to him it was a whale!
After a few more of those and a mix bag of other fish we moved on.  The next spot we hit was Mangrove Snapper city.  Most of the fish were on the smaller side 8-10″ with a few 11″ in the mix.  They were enjoying the hard hits that mangos are known for so they played with them for a while.  Next was a structure bar I like to fish this time of year that usually holds some decent trout.  The trout were there but nothing huge.  They reeled in a handful of solid 16-18″ fish.

and we decided to make one last stop.  We pulled up to a feeding frenzy along the bank.  Medium sized Snook were blasting the tiny bait fish that have invaded the area in the past week or so.  I believe they are baby manhaden.  We threw everything we had at them but they were dialed in to those 1/2″ fish.  Oh well, it was fun to watch.
