I would love to do some flounder fishing this fall since we aren't getting a fall snapper season. I have done a good bit of offshore fishing and some bay fishing but never got into flounder fishing. I would love to learn. I have a 16'7" Boston Whaler but no big lights or a gig. Do you gig your flounder or fish for them? Any pointers would be appreciated. If you ever need an extra hand I would love to tag along and learn. Thanks.

This section is called "Flounder Gigging" for a reason.

Equip your boat....Buy / build a gig.

Get on the water and look for'em. People that are successful at it have paid there dues. Spent time on the water.

Taking someone Flounder Gigging to you favorite spots is different than taking a person offshore to your favorite numbers.

They have landmarks to come back to when gigging Flounder.

I've been doing it for 14yrs now in our area. It's just been in the last 2yrs that my kill ratio has gone up.

Before that, there were many a Skunked nights.

You have to be willing to go and go and go....Then try new spots.


As to Gig's......I put these in service last night. Fish are not shaking off of these.



Get them here.

Thanks for the info. I realized after I posted that it was the gigging section. I have done it a few times but not in this area. Might have to give it a try.

Where is the best place to find them right now? In the bays, or on the beach?

Default Water temp.

Bow it got tough as soon as the record temps, we had this summer started. The commercial guys are slaying them in the river mouths where the water is cooler. In my opinion and only my opinion as soon as temps start to drop, you are right it will be on. Hardest summer I've had in years. The juvenile fish are everywhere, but those seasoned veterans headed for the river mouths and cooler water.
