Default first time gigging

looking to try my hand at gigging some flounder...any tips to help a first timer ?? i know i probably wont get many the first time out but it sounds fun....but i do have a couple of questions....should i use my trolling motor ?? how deep of water 2-4ft ?? and i am guessing as long as my light is bright enough i will see them if they are there...i live in milton so i will probably be putting in around mulat bayou and just troll the shoreline...thanks for any advise

Troling motor will work fine. You are liable so see the flounder laying anywhere from there nose just about on the beach to as far out as the water clarity will let you see. But on average I gig most of my fish within 1 ft of water. Good Luck.

They are halogens from Homo Depot. I run them off of a little 1000watt Honda.
