May flounder report - Rockport
The flounder gigging has been steady the last 3 nights, with solid fish coming in the boat on all different kinds of bottom. The fish moved from mud, to sand, and onto shell with a gradual dropping tide level over the last few days. Fresh water runoff from recent heavy rains has made many areas murky, making me take a run-and-gun approach to gigging the last few nights. Fish size remains steady with a 16” average, and a few fish each night in the 17-19” range.
