Mid-April Flounder Report
The last 6 nights of flounder gigging have been good, even with crazy winds from every direction. High or incoming tides remain best, with the action slower on nights with low tides or extreme winds. Water clarity has been very good, with most of the fish coming off soft mud or sand. The fish have been in tight groups, making for some fast and memorable trips when we find out where they want to be each night. Size has been consistent in the 14-18” range.
