Fishing was tough. It might of been the full moon. Capt. Scott didn’t give up! We must of traveled 80 miles hitting every spot he had up his sleeve. The fish just weren’t cooperating. We stayed out way over our time limit trying to put me on fish. It just wasn’t in the cards. The Capt. gets a 12 in effort.

I went out on a 1/2 day charter with Capt. Scott for red fish & snook. Unfortunately we caught neither. It’s not as if Capt. Scott didn’t try, the fish just weren’t there. It could have been the full moon. He tried an extra 2 hrs. but it just wasn’t happening. We did catch other fish, just not snook, or red fish.
