Flounder fishing best in flats yarborough pass 100 to 200 yards off land.using underwater lights gig them after 12 midnight mid waist water or a little shallower. On rod reel use live shrimp slowly retreive your line takes a little longer. When all of sudden your line stops ,your not hung up the flounder has took it its mounth and settled back down in the sand. High tide good!
At that time take the rod back to where you can reach the line past the tip on the rod. Make sure the line is tight and then start flipping the line with your finger. You want the vibrations to go down the line to the hook in its mouth. It will irate the Flounder so it comes up out of the sand. Now you can reel it in instade of pulling the hook out of its mouth. Told to a friend of mine many years ago by a then "Old Fisherman".
