Flounder are one of my fav fish to catch. I usually catch them while shootin' the shit or drunk w/ friends around my pier in the bay, because they like that slow play. I've caught more flounder off of spec rig packs than any other. They sell the white yellow speckled rigs at dam near any store you go to on the coast. It's just an eye-balled anchored hook w/ a black speckled white and yellow grub on the end. Slowly drag that around any wall or piling and you'll feel the flounder eat it, give them a few secs to consume it then set the hook.



Dipping those plastics really increases the chew rate.

Most people I know when targeting flounder use a carolina rig 1/2 -2oz egg sinker, and a live finger mullet, mud or bull minnows, or live shrimp. You kind of have to finess them as they'll drop the bait if you set the hook too soon. They like little hiding spots like under piers, bridges, around rocks, and low spots. You generally will move around a lot until you find them, then you can usually get a couple in that one spot. Good luck! They are starting to pick up, so its a good time to learn. I'm no pro, but thats what I've heard before and watched from some of the best. Good luck!

We were all fishing live shrimp and bull minnows.
