Default 4/11 flounder gigging trip

After reading several of the gigging posts on this forum, my fishing partner and I decided to give it a shot for the first time this year. I do not have a boat so we do it the old fashioned way. (wading) We arrived at our destination just before dark and unloaded our gear. We began our journey and it was a great evening for it. We ended up with three flounder with the largest being 18 inches. We stepped on or saw at least 40 electrical skates. A couple of them got me in the leg and it was a pretty good jolt. Sorry, but we do not have any pics due to the fact that we left the camera at home.

Better that than a barb through the foot.

Just shuffle your feet and you won't step on any rays.

Forgive my ignorance but what is an electrical skate?

Skates look like stingrays but they do not have a barb. However, their defense is an electrical charge. When they hit the side of your leg it shocks the crap out of you. I am gonna try Night Wing's advice next time and shuffle my feet.

Sad to say I'm from here and have never been shocked! I always assumed (yes, i know) they were stingrays. Looking forward to getting set up and getting out there. Thanks for the education!
