Cash In on Fall Flounder
There's a little nip in the air from time to time. The
water temperature is starting to decrease and it's becoming more comfortable
to be out on the water through the heat of the day. It's time to gear up and
refocus our attention to the fall Flounder run.
There are several things to know that will help make
your outing successful:
- Plan your trip to utilize an out flowing tide.
Flounder will naturally use an out flowing
tide to their advantage in migrating from
the bay to open gulf.
- Plan your trip to an area that concentrates
the fish. Your chances of picking up
Flounder will greatly improve if you fish an area that will concentrate the fish
when they move such as passes and points.
- A flounder’s strike is subtle. It feels like
a bump and some extra pressure – like your
sinker is hung on something. Resist the urge
to set the hook immediately .
- When you feel that pressure the flounder
usually has the bait in his mouth, holding
it with his teeth. He might swim 10 feet or more to a comfortable spot before trying
to swallow the bait. Give him line and wait
a minute or two before setting the hook.
