Default stingrays affecting flounder??

I'm curious if this is a possibility. The last three times I floundered, the most recent two nights ago, I have seen thousands of stingrays. I stuck the only 3 flounder I saw. Do you think the stingrays run off the flounder? I was on the west end of Dauphin Island where in the past have gigged them by the dozens. What gives??

I would say "yes and no".
I have limited out on flounder many times when the stingray's seemed to be everywhere.
I have also not seen very many flounder on other occasions when the stingrays were abundant as well.
I have also seen stingrays spook founder that I was about to gig, but overall I think they get along and just move around each other and get out of each others way.
I have gigged many flounder that were laying in a stingray hole.

I'll bet you posted where you got the tons of flounder before. If U did thats were they went to, the 30 or 40 giggers that showed up the next day and again this year.

Where I launch is 13 miles. The closest public launch is 18 miles (one way). It's a long run. I was there gigging by myself which is usually the case. I don't think it's an issue of a lot of giggers sticking all of them.
