Hi, stagers. My name is Frank. I'd like to introduce myself. I've been viewing the Stage for a while and all of you seem like very nice people that I wouldn't mind getting to know. I'm 82 years old, widowed almost 8 years ago and have been fishing about 70 years. I live in New Jersey not too far from the Hudson River. I also fish Lake Hopatcong. Greenwood Lake and Monksville Reservoir. In the past, I fished in Canada, but stopped that when my fishing buddy passed. Just don't want to take a trip like that alone. Would like to hear from any and all of you. As I said, you al seem like very nice people.

Welcome Frank !
I agree that everyone on FS seems friendly, positive and really good people.
There are other forums that are full of negative people with rude comments, people at FS are not like that.
I've learned a lot in the short time that I have been in FS , hope you can get out there and " drown some worms " , and good luck πŸ‘

Hi, Plum. Nope, never too old to pick up some new info. I don't know if many people have heard this one. I was flounder fishing with an old timer many years ago (before I became an old timer myself.) He caught one flounder and passed a piece of monofilament into its gill and out its mouth and tied a knot. He then let the fish back into the water, and once it was back on the bottom, gave the line some extra slack, cut it and got a balloon from his tackle box, blew it up and tied it to the line. We fished around the balloon fur the next couple of hours and did quite well. The old timer explained that flounder like to school up with other flounders and become a fish finder for you. I thought this was pretty sharp.

Frank, I actually saw something similar in my fishing North Carolina days.

I came across a popping cork in a sandy area just slowly moving along in the water. At first I thought it was the breeze or tide moving it but when it went against both, nope had to be a fish attached to a wayward line.

Each time I positioned the kayak to get to it, the cork would move a little closer. Than I tried a few cast and with no luck it eventually went to deeper waters and the float never appeared within my view again.

As for flounder traveling in schools can not say I have had much luck in that department. Seems like it was always one here and there.
