i have been to Shoreline Park east and west also went in the sound side at Pensacola beach right at the road entrance of fort pickens. i saw a few sting rays in each area but NO sign of any flounder. it was 2 hours into low tide and about 1 1/2 hours after sunset. to be honest i did not spend a lot of time. water was clear and calm. thanks for any clues or facts.

If you were just coming out of a low tide you are going to have minimal luck, the areas you were at can produce but you need to be well in to the incoming tide or just after high tide with current moving out. Watch the tides and keep trying you will find fish and will learn the movement.

You may be trying to find flounder in between their summer grounds and where they will be in the fall. Just sayin

Your way early for bay gigging. Better off slinging saltwater assassins with jig heads around dock pilings. Cause their there. Early mornings and evenings. Gigging right now....... Well that's a secret I can't go telling.

To early for bay gigging. Whatever dude !!! There's plenty of flounder to gig you just have to know where to look. The fish are around from March to November. The people who can't find them during the spring and summer are the ones who only gig the fall run cause it's easy.

I went early this morning (wading), just had the itch. Thought the wind would not be too bad but it was pretty choppy. Saw some small ones, spooked one and took one home, about 15" and will be dinner tomorrow. Just gotta get out there and go, you will hook up sooner or later.
