Welcome to the forum......We used to wade the gulf for flounder when I was growing up. We picked up a few every now and then. Havent tried it in years in the gulf. Good luck and watch for the sting rays while wading.

I have seen it done on Galveston Island but Ive never tried it.

Sometimes in late summer our surf gets dead calm and cystal clear, it just might be worth a try.

I know I have stepped on Flounder at night while wading out to cast a big surf rod so I know they are there.

Will be in Navare beach end of july, I've gigged many times on the beach at home,we do really well when we can see,and yes we do have alot of stingrays, but I walk only wherei can see, and the sand down here is brown so the stingrays stand out like a sore thumb when the come near the light. I was thinking the water over there should be alot clearer than down here and should be able to see up to my knees at least

I use to wade the gulf a lot. Nothing gets your attention like a big ole electric skate or one of those friggin star gazers.

Correct! Purple Flags are flying on the beach and lots of Jellyfish are everywhere. Bring a small bottle of vinegar with you to treat the stings.

First of all, conditions in the Gulf need to be very good, for visibility. Then, if so, watch for Skates, Rays, jelly's and yes- those buroughing electric fish. You'll think you're wrapped in electrical fence! They shock! Dat not like a craw dad pinch- NO! OooooWeeee:hotsun(Not to mention the gulf and blue crabs, catfish spines, shells etc...) But, I must say, the flounder should be around! The question is will you see them? The weather being calm enough to wade is the key, I would say! :nononoAlso, gulf flounder will be more white in color. So watch for the eyes! They won't be dark, like dem dar' "Cajun Flounders"! Enjoy the experience, all jokin' aside! I imagine it must be nice to get out of that "muddy water" every now and then!

Good fishin'!
