Default anyone who has ever caught flounder with artificials

Im a live bait guy...iv been meaning to learn how to fish artificials so I got some 1/4 oz jigheads and gulp swimming mullet,gulp 2 inch shrimp. How can I catch more flounder in the icw(between brooks bridge and hurlburt field)

gulp works fine for us. caught over 500 in November with 3 of us just on gulps.(different colors and styles all work just got to find what works for you.)
just keep them close to the bottom with short hops and pauses. look for eddies off the main flow with access to deeper water and structure doesn't hurt to have. in coming tides seems to produce more fish both you can catch them on both but slack tide is time for you to eat a sandwich. cause they ain't eat'n. good luck hope this helps.

The only thing that I have ever caught on Gulp is a bad temper. The damn pinfish and lizard fish always eat the tails off of them before I can catch anything else. I catch flounder on a Redfish Magic lure. Red head with Electric chicken if water is murky. A red head with green over silver two tone with a chartreuse tail in clear water.

Yes, Strike King Rage Tail Shrimp. But plenty of others that'll work too!

I prefer vudu shrimp, my fav color is the pearl/chartreuse. I catch reds flounder and trout on them.
