Trip Info


Full moon snapper trip. We left the dock at 6:30 pm last night and fished till 10:00 pm. As the moon slowly ascended the snapper bite got hotter, at about 8:30 pm you couldn’t keep a bait in the water. All 6 of my anglers from avid to novice were hooked up, it was extreme action, throwing back the short snapper, but the majority of the fish were keepers. From muttons, yellowtails, mangrove’s, lane’s, even a couple throw back vermilions. One of my regular anglers caught a 7 pound mangrove (grey) snapper. What a great night with great people!!

Around the full moon the snapper bite tends to slow down during the day because they feed all night long, that moon acts like a big light bulb in the sky. It’s kind of funny to watch rods bend when the moon is out, then a cloud covers it for about 5 minutes, and you’ll notice how the bite slows until the moon uncovers, with anglers staring at the sky waiting. What a great night with 50 plus keepers. If you want to fish around the full moon, find a boat that will take you when the moon is bright!

Tight lines,
Capt. George
