Default southern flounder research

Hey all,
Iím a graduate student at the Gulf Coast Research Lab in Mississippi studying Southern Flounder. I am in need of fresh flounder for my project, especially larger fish from offshore throughout December and January. For my research purposes I would only need the heads and organs, which will not affect the fillets in any way. These fish would be most useful to me within 24 hours after catch and on ice. If you would be interested in helping out I can drive to you and fillet the flounder you catch. I know that this time of year it gets trickier to catch flounder so I would be very grateful for any help you can give! Please contact me at: [email protected]
All the best,
Morgan

We definitely need some research done. The last two years the southerns have been hard to find in any numbers.

They have slowed down to one or two a trip now. PM me your phone # and I will put some on ice for you. I don't normally keep any between 12 and 14" but if want that size I will keep them whole for you. Now what will you do for us Maybe share some of that information? gene

Flounder have a cycle 2 or 3 years of strong good runs and a couple slow years of runs. I haven't seen any decline it that cycle for many many years. This year has been a little slow.

Ron, I've fished flounder for a long time and have never seen it as bad as what the last 2 years have been. Especially this year.

Maybe next year or possibly a slow movement offshore. I remember a few years back getting fl offshore into late Feb. Just have to wait and see

No way at least not for me. I have had a few banner years since Ivan.
