Default gigging question

Have any of you ever just walked along the beach with a big light and shinned it in the water and gigged flounder that way?? Just curious. Thanks

I have never done it personally but i have seen people waiding before. they had a truck intertube, washtub and a 12v light and battery. personally thats too much walking for me, i like to relax in my boat and let the trolling motor do the work.

I know I few that put a lawnmower battery in a back pack and do it that way. I tried it earlier this year when my t/m was broke and I don't think I want to do it again. It's a lot of work.

Walked and gigged flounder in Jax / St. Augustine area. Did well. Never tried it here in Pensacola.

Giged my first flounder as a kid wading with a wash tub rig.

Walked a 1,000 miles as a kid with Coleman Floundering light and never gig a flounder (giged everything else that moved)

Did little walking when I got older ( a lot work and made back hurt) So I made up first boat rig w/ 3 100w12v bulbs and haven't got my feet wet since.

Oh after a year I switch to a gen. and haven't looked back. That being said I see a lot people walkin andI"ve seen some good results.

did it alot as a kid with the truck tube set up, alot of fun, but you cant make up that much ground as you would in a boat. but unfortunely i have been wet the last 2 times gigging from my boat. trolling motor meets a stump with my back turned the other way. :banghead:banghead:banghead nothing like a late night bath, at least it hasnt happen in the winter months!

wash tub rig is a favorite. They are more practical for areas that could be highly productive with less pressure from others!



We use to have a great success using these rigs on gulf side shorelines closed to jettie/pass inlets.
