Default Limit of Gulf flounder 2-9-11

Transplanted from the gulf Guys I would sue BP for this crap

The Gulf flounder are rare here this time of the year especially in this neck of the woods.


Who knows? anyhow they ended up here.

I know one commercial guy taking 300-400 lbs. per night he says it has been a gold mine since December.

But how can that possibly be. Maybe the flounder are eating tar balls and reproducing monster flounder in record numbers. That oil spill was suppose to ruin the fishing here for the future of our lives. Just look what it's done to the Snapper so far. (The water is turning red with them). And the waters are so tainted from the spill. I've never seen the water this clear in years in the bays after all the rain we've had. Come on nay Sayers lets hear it!!!!

I figure them fishes are moving in where they didn't before to either get away from the oil that is ruining their usual areas or to look for something to eat because oil killed or tainted the food they would usually eat.

While some effects of the gianormous amount of oil still in the water may be instantaneous, many will take some time to realize and last for years. That concludes my nay saying. For now...

Well, I figure there is an easy way to figure out what may happen. We can get you a fresh couple of pints of crude. Use it as creamer in your coffee, salad dressing, tooth paste, etc on a daily basis and then we will watch and see if you keel over immediately or if it takes a little bit of time.

Default Colder Months

Oil will naturally sink to the Bottom in colder water in the winter time.

Caught these guys on the East coast of fl. usually not as common as the Southern Flounder. From my understanding there shouldn't bee any flounder inland until the Spring run. Seems as though they have taken refuge here.
