Default New to floundering, need tips.

So I rigged up my rhino light 12footer with two 50w LED flood lights. Everything works fantastic, the lights are incredibly bright. I recently went 3 times in the past two weeks twice to navy points white island and once to Johnsons beach big lagoon side of course. Saw only 2 flounder at white island both keepers.
Is there something I should be waiting on to happen for these flounder to start moving? A cold snap?
Am I in the wrong areas for flounder at this time?
Should I head near Perdido river or any river inlet?
I'm usually floundering during the rising tide, is that the problem?

No offense but you wouldn't get that info if you was a member on here for years much less a few min. Best way to find them is stay persistent and put in the time. Good luck.

Tip # 1 Don't Gig them in the middle of the body.
Tip # 2 Think like a Flounder and go to areas they would like to be.
Tip # 3 Go as much as you can and try new places.
Tip # 4 Go early and stay late.
Tip # 5 Follow The old guy with the raggedy boat, he should know where they are.

Marc, time to go. This old guy is doing pretty well with a 60 lb. average a night. After this front and water temp drop should be alot better. Been hitting it 3 nights a week. Fish quality really good.
