Do you know anything about flounder gigging or are you just using common sense?Have you ever tried gigging on a full moon? I was looking for an answer based on expierience not a scientific deduction. How long have you been gigging flounder?

ive learned that if i wait for the moon to be gone, and the tides to be right, and the water to be perfect, with the wind calmi only flounder about twice a year. to answer, yes the flounder are more likely to see you with more light behind you. but you can certainly still see them. if you have a chance to go, i would say do it! it would be difficult tonight, but ialways try to get where the moon is in front of me (instead of over my shoulder) and just be really silent and quick with sticking them.

good luck to you!

be silent?.....how about those generators people use and still gig some...well?I don't know....you got to try for yourself I guess. If flounder is camoflauged they sure think they are invisible....don' they....that's just my thought.

I went floundering with this guy last year. He got bored with the flounder (we didn't see any) and he started gigging mullet! the crabs came next. I think it was a full moon that night.
