Default Interesting Floundering method

This would be a good way to land in whole condition without damaging the flesh.

That's fine if you intend on releasing them, looks like to much work to me. Is interesting though

Our flounder population in Texas had been in a severe decline for years and this is re-stocking program. TPW goes out and captures the flounder alive and puts them in a breeding program in Port Arthur.

Interesting.....Is it due to overfishing or broad bag limits ?

Shrimp by catch is the main reason. Where I live in Texas, people target speckled trout and redfish. A majority of fisherman catch a flounder by accident so flounder aren't over fished. Our bag limit is 5 flounder except in the month of November when the bag limit is 2 flounder and no gigging in the month of November. Our TPW did this to protect the flounder who migrate to the Gulf of Mexico to spawn. Recently, TPW has started a flounder re-stocking plan to try and bring the flounder population back up. But that won't stop the shrimpers who catch tons of small flounder in their shrimp nets as by catch.
