2008-04-19 - And Who Says the Full Moon is no good for fishing....
So I guess this report pretty much reminds us that forecasting fishing based on the Moon is a generalization, and certainly not a rule...yesterday was full moon...and here's the report from Capt. Joe: Fishing today in San Sal got off to a real good yellowfin bite today. We saw some fish skying today that seemed to be in the 100 lb range. However when the tuna are around so are the sharks. We boated 3 today and had our biggest yellowfin in quite some time eaten by a huge 400 lb shark. The bite lasted for about an hour . Our best lures were our cedar plug daisy chain and skirted ballyhoo. It seems the very large tuna dont mind eating the long riggers as we had some great bites up close today. After the yellowfin bite slowed we continued to catch blackfin as it appeared the yellowfin had gone deep for the day. Once again the first part of the falling tide was gthe best. We continued to catch some blackfin before continuing on to deep drop and snorkle. We expect the yellowfin bite to be as good tomorrow . Hopefully we can mix in some dolphin also. Tight Lines, Capt.
