Admiral...problem is most of these new reels can't 'click'...need to add a playing card to the frame of the reel so that the spokes make it click...ancient Huffy/Schwin technology..LOL...mel

Marsh theses guy sound like they've all had lil too much to drink this Pass Holiday week, There nothing special i know to catch them,I've caught few here&there guess have to be in right place@right Time!!!!! I do know good shellie sandy Bottum help on catching them Good Luck
Here are some tips. First, flounder do not concentrate in the summer, and that's mostly why they are an occassional bycatch. However, they do like structures with currents, so that's the first place to try. They also like deep passes, so drift the dropoffs. Some guide are catching them on the ledges of the Rigolets right now.
When I lived in Texas, there were flounder specialists. It was noted they prefer minnows over shrimp.
Flounder get easier to catch in the fall. They start schooling so they can move offshore to spawn during the winter. This peaks in early November, and can be awesome fishing. Places to try are the rock dam at Hopedale, and the west side of the HWY 11 bridge.
Luck is one thing. You have to find them first. Studies have shown that on a good flowing tide, flounder swim up into shallow water to ambush prey as the tide moves it past them. During slack tide, they move into deeper water.
As far as bait goes, I like and have had success with live fish such as finger mullet (which I think is the best), cocahoe minnows, etc. Fish them on a Carolina rig bounced slowly on the bottom.
Hope this helps and good luck.
this guy has a unique way to catch flounder --
It doesn't look like it, but the ice chest has 20 flounder in it
I'm no biologist nor am I trying to contradict Dr. Spot's post, but I am not lying to you when i tell you I have had six different trips in the past two years where i have put a two man limit of flounder in the boat in one day, all on new penny gulp, all in one spot, and all in the summer. I have caught a ton of flounder, a lot in my boat but also a lot in my kayak, and the biggest piece of advice I can give you is that flounder seem to prefer minnows much more than shrimp and prefer a hard moving tide in shallow mud flats or sandy bottoms. The gulps really do seem to be the key. When you figure out where they are, shoot me an email and I'll show you a great stuffed flounder recipe with blue crab meat. Good luck.
Thanks for all the info i'll gladly accept more
no schools in summer?
dont believe anything you hear and only half of what you see.
