Default Never thought that I would be posting in THIS section

Took my best friend and his wife out with my wife and I and launched out to try to find a few. Spent most of the night looking at stingrays, the occasional sheepshead and quite a few large redfish that kept coming in and out of the lights. Finally decided to start to head in. As I look down, sure enough, my first ever gigged flounder! Not much to be proud of, 14". Kept going a few minutes more, now we're talking a 22"-er! Learned a lot from reading you guys' posts and kept hitting them just aft of the gills and having NO problems at all. Stuck 2 more over 20" and then let the wife try. She unfortunately hit one and he got off, but he did so because she stuck him WAY aft (probably the best fish of the night, too). Overall, not a bad night on the water with great friends! Pics to follow later on.

Cheers-

Chris :toast
