My personal favorite. Flounder can be cooked in a variety of different ways and to be honest taste good each and every way. Whether you cook it on the grill, fry it, bake it or stuff it I guarantee flounder will be one of your favorites. My personal favorite is stuffed flounder, which of course is a whole flounder stuffed with a crab meat stuffing. Marvelous dish.
Here are a few tips on how to catch Flounder.
1. Flounder can especially be found near bridge piles, docks, reefs, and other types of natural or man made structures that protrude from the ground. As a result, flounder can generally be found close to the bottom of the ocean floor, which is a good thing for fishermen to keep in mind.
2. Patience is a must. Flounder aren't an attack and swim fish. They feed slowly. If you try to set the hook too soon you will most likely just lose your bait. When flounder fishing, don't jump on the urge to set the hook when you feel that first tug. Wait a little while before setting the hook. My grandma taught me a trick. If it's a small tug, wait about 30 seconds. Bigger tug give it about 45 seconds a big tug wait about a minute before setting the hook.
3. Use live bait and just enough mini weights to where the bait can still swim around freely. It's really a simple set up. Just your hook, live bait, and 1 or 2 mini weights. At the right spot at the right time you can catch them all day long, but you must be patient.
