I agree with this too. 5 flounder per person would be fine. Im sure everyone has noticed that there has not been as many flounder in the last few years.

Im sure alot of people will disagree with me on this but I wish they would put strict regulations on gigging flounder. Its extremely easy to gig a fish that doesnt move when you shine a light on it.

i want to see a 5 fish creel with limit exceptions (ex...1 redfish or cobia per person)

minimum size limit 13 inches...the majority of fish become mature at 10 to 12 inches...ex...specks, flounder (males), white trout, pompano and spanish to name a few.

tight lines

i am with whalersailor...flounder are one of few fish that are still excellent frozen...the key to frozen fish as he stated is to freeze in water or vacum seal...then make sure first in is first out!

tight lines!

reeltrouble (8/19/2008)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.
You obviously don't catch or eat much flounder:<UL><LI>40 filets makes a good fish fry. </LI><LI>Flounder freeze better than any fish out there. </LI><LI>There's sufficient size filets on a 12" flounder. They fry up crisper/firmer.</LI><LI>And who the hell has time to hold a fish up to a light? I can see light through a jumbo shrimp and a 16oz ribeye and I'm sure not going to throwthem away.</LI>[/list]

Matt Mcleod (8/20/2008)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.
I also agree with everything said here. It's not good to hit them the hardest when they are spawning. The only thing I would add tothis is I think the Snapper limit should be the first 4 regardless of size to keep people from throwing back countless #'s of undersized fish that are going to die anyway.
