4/1/17 Got Skunked

Post by JAXDuck » Wed Apr 05, 2017 11:46 am

Got skunked along the ICW on sunday. Fished the incoming tide. Fish simply weren't taking the bait. Back at the launch, everyone I talked to had the same results. Wondering if the redfish fed all night by moonlight and were in a food coma :pale:

We fished in the Gulf this past Sunday and while the conditions seemed perfect, we didn't get normal results. Managed 22 fish between the two of us with an early 23 inch red that was the biggest catch on top water. I do believe the lunar phase and the barometer were key factors in the bite not being the greatest.
