Default Flounder Pounder strikes again!

Well, we headed out to Okaloosa this morning and braved the sporty launch.


Our goal was to bring home some flatties and maybe a keeper reef donkey. 1 out of 2 ain't bad. Took us a little while to find the flatties, but once we did it was game on. Didn't get any good sized ones, but the ones we got were decent enough. Blackjeep landed 3 and I pulled in 6. We both lost a few at the yak. When we got to the barge, the AJs weren't hungry. I jigged up a couple of Redfish trying to get some action, along with a couple beast Snapper. No reef donkeys . One of the RRLs got slammed by a nice Blacktip Shark. He took me for a ride and we thought about trying to take him home, but he was just too damn big to safely land him. Guess I'm a little rusty with the GoPro. I got all of the shark fight, but failed to clean my damn lense afterward. All the videos I shot after were useless. I'll post the video of the Blacktip tomorrow. Tight lines!

How deep are you fishing for the flounder? Are you using jigs or live bait for the flounder?

We bounce a buck tail jig on the bottom around structure. Jig is tipped with cut cigars. I think we were in 65-75ft of water today.
