Wade Fishing After A Full Moon (Will I Get Skunked??)

Will I get skunked if I go wade fishing after a full moon???

I haven’t been able to get out to the water in quite a while so a full moon wasn’t going to stop me!

Full moons can be favorable or they force a skunk trip on you.

Tackle Used On This Trip:

My goal was to use slightly larger presentations to see if there were still any gator trout cruising the flats.

As per the usual fall and winter trends, the trout were out in deeper pockets while the redfish were pushed up closer to shore.

There were a ton of birds sitting along the shoreline which made me want to go check it out.

If you ever see birds congregating on a shoreline or around structure, there’s a good chance there’s fish there.

Although the birds may not be actively feeding, odds are there are a bunch of fish in the area underneath the surface.

These fish may have been feeding earlier so those birds will stay and wait around until the fish start to feed again.

Feeding fish push the bait up to the surface and the birds then try and pluck off easy meals.

I talk a lot about fishing wind-protected shorelines in the winter.

Northern winds tend to be the reason for colder water temperatures in the winter.

Southern winds normally bring warmer weather and the northern winds bring cooler air down south.

It’s also a huge bonus if you can find any bait around you.

Due to the scarcity of bait, if a fish locates a school of bait, it might stalk that school for as long as possible just waiting for a chance at a meal.

The Slam Shady 2.0 was crushing it the entire time on this trip.

All I did was slowly roll the lure back toward me with maybe a twitch here or there at random points.


As we move into the COLD of winter, fish want to feel comfortable which means stable temperatures and a belly full of bait.

Start to locate spots with access to deeper channels but in close proximity to shorelines that are also wind-protected.

Winter is an AMAZING time to hit the water you’ve just got to be in the 90/10 zone!!!

Do you have any questions for me about this trip?

Any recommendations for a good set of waders? Will be used in Florida waters around the Brevard County area if that helps? Thank you for any recommendation feedback received
