Default Tabletop/Throw Rug (east Coast)

My buddy caught this monstrosity in the Jacksonville area at Nassau Inlet. This guy tipped the scales at 12.5 lbs. I don't know what the measurements were but I know they caught him on a big finger mullet on a sliding sinker rig. These Doormats stack up at all the inlets on the east coast, Sebastian Inlet being the most popular. I have seen some pushing 14 lbs caught right next to me. The Snook also get people going crazy like they do here during Cobia season.I haven't heard to much of people gigging for flounder over there. I don't think they hang out in the shallows as much.

Good gosh! Now that one has some meat on it! I've never had the chance to eat Snook and its been on my want to eat before I die list for a long time. Have you ever had it? What's it similar to? BTW, great catch!

I hooked one like that in the pass about 20 years ago. I was redfishing with big live pinfish. Had him on top of the water by the boat. Reach ed down with net and he spit the pinfish and hook. I actually think he was just holding on to the pinfish. Was the biggest flounder I've ever seen in person. Made me sick.

My husband hooked one in Tarklin about 11 years ago on very light tackle and I caused him to lose it...I grabbed the line and it popped!

That's some beautiful fish! I can just see him under the broiler with some lemon/garlic/butter!! yummmmmmmmm!!!

Thanks for the post!!!!
