Default Flounder Limit

I say they change the flounder minimum size to 14 inches and change the bag limit from10 per person to 5 per person

I just don't understand what one person does with 40 flounder fillets at one time? (if you freeze them they just don't taste the same!) and how much meat do you really get from a 12 inch flounder, when you can pick the fish up to a light and see completely through it i think you should toss it back.

Well, with my recent performance, I make up for every limit that the experienced guys get all of the time with my lackluster creel of 3-5 fish tops.:moon

reeltrouble...do you know when a flounder becomes mature?

do you know the difference between a gulf flounder and a southern flounder?

do you know what the ratio of males are between females?

do you know which is larger the male or the female?

tight lines!

Default RE: Flounder Limit

I actually agree. A 12" flounder is too small to keep, and I think the limit should be 5 fish. I think 15 sheephead is too much, it should be 5. I know there is only one time of year when we catch a bunch of sheepheadbut it's when the fish group up to spawn, not a good time to blood bath their asses like happens every spring. Same with the flounder in the fall, they go to the gulf to spawnbut a lot getkilled before they get there. I am not for killing less of everything, but with sheephead and flounder it should be less. I think snapper should be 4 fish a person with no closed seasons in state or federal.
