Have any of you ever just walked along the beach with a big light and shinned it in the water and gigged flounder that way?? Just curious. Thanks
YEP...ME TOO. AND THE CROSS WAS THE LAST PLACE GOING TOWARDS FT PICKENS WHERE THERE WAS ANY BUILDINGS. MY DAD LOST SEVERAL DIMES THERE, WE BOYS DIDN'T ALWAYS HIT THE BASKET.IF THE FLOUNDER WASNT LAYING, DAD WOULD PUT A RED SNAPPER HEAD ON A ROPE. TOSS IT OUT FOR A WHILE, AND SLOWLY PULL IT IN, WHILE MOM AND US BOYS STOOD STILL AND HELD CRAB NETS.Emerald Ghost (11/19/2009)I did many years ago along (Soundside) Quietwater Beach.
Had a 10" Jon boat a couple flounder lights and gigs, a crab net and a 9 foot mullet net.
By daylight we would almost always have a good mess of fish and crabs to eat.
The toll gate was a dime in those days, and gas was $.24 a gallon.
