Default What month will the Flounder migrate?

I've pretty much missed out on the floundering lately due to trying to re-rig our boat. I'm hoping to at least get a chance or two this fall but we only have a 15' jon boat. I'm hoping we won't miss the run whenthey evacuate, LOL! Hoping to get a tip or two so we can hopefully be ready. We won't be hitting the passes or jetties. I grew up sticking them in the Gulf, so we are still green on the boat method. BTW, we love it and are hooked!

Thanks, I'm hoping we will still stick a few on the shores of our bay as they are going out. We never get the chance to go, but I bet once we get our rig redone, we will have better luck because of having better lighting. Yeah, definitely don't want any secrets from anybody, just a tip. The chances of us being out there when others are, are slim to none. Our schedule just doesn't allow. I appreciate the help!

All I know is that durring December through February, I can go out in the gulf and shoot two at a time on the wrecks while spearfishing. Last winter, I was walking on flounder in 80' of water.

I still remember layering up for the trips in the Gulf at night wadeing for them. I think I actually enjoyed wearing the jeans because the baitfish would'nt make me do the ole knee-to-chins! All the ones we ever stuck in the Gulf were doormats and it makes me want to try it again. Got all the gear, just need a new innertube.

So you're saying we have till Turkey Day? Hope to be finished. When this project is done, I don't think I'm going to be changing for a while. I love the Halogen lights! Thanks!

I know a couple of winter run funnel spots where you can anchor, turn you lights on and gig them as they cruise by. Easiest floundering you'll ever do.

I'd love to know where they are, but I know honey holes are very hush hush.
