Default Jumping flounder?

I went to Biloxi this weekend and fished the marsh for reds. While I was fishing by an inlet to a bayou I saw a flounder come clean out of the water about 15 feet in front of me. Has anyone ever heard of this?

i caught a flounder on a zara spook one time... closest i've seen to one coming out of the water.

possibly a manta ray or a cow-nose ray.

The water was about thigh high. And Im 100% sure it was a flounder I saw the top when he first came out of the water and the bottom when he was going back in the water. And it was right in front of me

I have seen it once maybe 1ft or 2. They do when they are in shallow water and very hungry.

WOW you learn something new everyday! I have never seen a flounder actively persue food. They usually sit their lazy asses on the bottom and wait for it to come to them.

Are you sure it wasn't 8 mullet side by side? I have heard that when they get bored they try sencronized jumping.
