I know this full moon thing has been addressed previously, but here goes again: I plan to charter at night for stripers next week and it appears we will fish with eels, either inside Jamaica Bay or in the Atlantic Highlands area. I am debating whether to charter on 11/19, on the full moon vs 11/21. I believe the low tide is around midnight and the capt. said we can fish the entire tide. Also, in the past, I recall using at least ten ounces to hold bottom on a typical night and going as high as 20 oz on some of the party boats fishing that area...I do not generally enjoy using that much weight. I assume we will need it though if we fish on the full moon. Thanks.
