Default Destin Flounder

Well I'm just getting into saltwater fishing and dont know all the spots yet in the bay around destin and ft walton. Going to try gigging a few flounder this weekend and was wondering what are some good areas to gig? I will be staying around the shalimar area. Do i need to try around brooks bridge destin bridge or do i need to find where a freshwater creek is feeding into the bay?? i have no clue on what to look for.. I know i could use some dynomite to find the fish but i dont think the fwc will be to fond of that. any help would be greatly appreciated..

check down a few posts from yours jerry, "where else to gig" by Drifterfisher...got some highlighted maps of areas to work in the destin/fwb region and some member discussions on those areas...but don't hold out a lot of hope that folks will jump to tell you spots to fish, us floundermen are kinda defensive of our favorite territory post pics or a report of your trips and that'll go a long way in getting feedback from other members in the future! Good luck to you
