Default finally...

After spending every weekend for the past month scouting and striking out trying to find some flounder, I finally had some success last night. Started around 12am wading, and found the biggest one in about 6 inches of water. Smallest one was 14 1/2 in, largest was about 19 in. As a recent transplant from the nothern midwest, These are the first flounder I have ever gigged. I saw a ton of small flounder as well, probably in the 6-8 in range. Although I was happy to dragging three dead, bleeding fish on a stringer behind me, I'd be lying if I said it didn't make me a little bit nervous.

Thanks guys, I grew up spearing northern pike through the ice back in Michigan, but I was stationary and you throw the spear. I was pretty excited when I found out about this flounder gigging and stalking em in the water.

Do flounder hold up okay in the freezer?
