Have been using tide chart for 5-6 months now, posted a few pictures etc.. Just now checking out forum, fishermen are a unique group of people everywhere it seems. I think i will be reading and-or writing on here now and then. i fish every chance i get, gig flounder and even hunt, but saltwater flats fishing is my favorite. big reds, flounder, trout in shallow water is quite a thrill. So Hello everyone, hope to get to know a few of you better on the forum,.
I use live minnows. 3-5 inch for flounder usually. However i have used (lead heads) 1/4 ounce with white curly tail grubs. Just working the bottom slowly, traveling along shore and casting out, retrieving toward bank. Works well wading and just as good from a boat. Good on hot days. Like you though, I mostly gig them at night.
Also get lots of blue crabs at night with net while gigging flounder. Gives me crabmeat to stuff flounder with.
Hey, I just moved down to St. Pete and have a few spots for grouper but how is the best way and places to gig flounder? Around pilings at low tide? I have gigged many frogs in the past so I imagine not too different. Thanks for the help
