Full Moon snapper Bite 10/29

Ventured offshore to fish the back side of this full moon we had, loaded the well with pilchards and a couple 5 gal buckets for use as chummers. Conditions were favorable with a 3' swell on the ride out with a beautiful sunset. Set up in 60' on some small structure and started fishing right around 9pm. The bite was consistent with most fish in the 14-17" range, right off the bat. We used 20lb flourocarbon with a knocker rig with shrimp or pilchards. The moon rose and the bite shut off tremendously. The largest mangrove was 22" along with two right at 20" to accompany the yeti. I did land a nice 33 1/2" cobia that also made the box. A larger cobia in the 40lb size range came to check out the lights but was disinterested in our smaller pilchards and shrimps.
