Default Start of floundering season

Thinking about going the first weekend of March to see if this warm weather is going to bring them back in a lil sooner. Anyone else tested the waters yet this year ?

I am just really anxious to try out my new setup. Hoping they will start moving back in soon. The offshore buoy showes water temp at 69 degrees. About 5 more degrees is perfect for migration back in.

They are piled up here in Destin. Still offshore but thick.

Are you gigging close to the pass? Had a few stacked up on the beaches there recently...

Most of the fish come off a Jighead

Well I can't take it anymore! I am heading out in about 30 min to go try some spots that have produced before when the water temp got in the upper 60's lower 70's. Close to the gulf. I will let yall know if they are starting to show up or not. Fingers crossed.
P.S. water temp is 71 degrees at the bouy.
