Flounder Fishing 101
Flounder can be caught throughout the year in many different locations. During the spring, summer, and fall, you will find them mostly in estuaries. Late fall and into winter is a time called the “flounder run,” when the fish moves from downstream to inlets and out to sea for spawning. Flounder hunt by hiding just under sand and mud waiting to ambush prey, preferring to sit close to structure that attracts other fish.
Most flounder fishing is done with light tackle, as you need a sensitive rod to feel the vibrations coming from the fish. Rigging the line with cut bait and live bait from the local fishery is the most consistent way to attract flounders.
Artificial lures are also effective for taking flounders. These fish usually sit and wait for prey, so lures that mimic shrimp and fish, and can be weighted and jigged along the bottom, will provide strikes from flounders.
