Largest Flounder of 2018
9/29/2018 - Largest Flounder of 2018
I had longtime customer Cliff H. group of 6 onboard tonight. Conditions were nice, with East wind at 5-10mph turning North at midnight, and high tide levels. We had 3-4” of rain this morning, and that didn’t help the water clarity. To date, we have had 30” of rain for September, making for the worst water quality I have ever seen this time of year. The gigging was terribly slow tonight, and we only had 2 flounder in the boat at midnight. We moved around a bunch, and many areas were gutted with fresh turbid water. We ended with 10 flounder plus 3 sheepshead and 2 black drum by 2am. We gigged the largest flounder for 2018 tonight, it was 26” long and weighed 7.5 pounds.
