Nice! I grew up spearing Northern Pike through the ice back home in Michigan, but gigging flounder looks like a pretty good time!

You should try a pair of catfish skinners instead of those channels. One hell of a night by the way.

Wow! What a nice haul for 3 giggers. That last photo with the flounder frying in the pan should made me hungry for some fresh flounder.

Thanks for sharing the report and photos.

They way I was taught to clean flounder Involves skinners. I start with a sharp knife and skinner, insert knife from the top side behind the head just under the skin with the blade turned outward and follow the whole perimeter with just a 1/4 inch of blade under the skin. This includes a joining the cuts from top to bottom by connecting them behind the eyes and gills ( do this to both sides). The with a pair of skinners pull the skin off like a catfish. What you are left with is a whole flounder that has been undressed. The next step is the rake your finger down the back bone to break the meat loose. Once the meat is away from the backbone you just fillet outward to the fins. When I get done you can read a newspaper through them.
