Flounder Gigging
May 21st, 2009 at 6:53pm
 
Anyone on the board in the Jacksonville area do any flounder gigging?  I've seen the boat set ups and thought about giving it a shot with the minnow. 

Do you try and go in the flats or more up in creeks?

What time of year do you try and go?

To understand Floundering take a look at Red Van and Rick Hammond's site. To start go directly to "Flounder Wars". There is a nasty rumour going around about these two disrespecting "artistic License" by gathering ideas from elsewhere, but I can assure you they are ORIGINAL as they come.

Best regards,

Mark,
Sounds like a trip we need to take. Let's go do some gigging in the minnow.  Just need to rig some lights that extra battery will come in handy now.

Maybe we can hang the lights off of your umbrella mod?

LOL, now your talking. this actually gives me a good idea though, i have some party lights that have  little trout as the light globes, i can hang the lights from the umbrella and run them off a power inverter. it might not do much for the flounder but i'm sure i would be a hit at the next light parade  Grin

Hello, I'm new here and noticed there are some avid flounder giggers on this forum. Fall is a great time for gigging - the flounder are really on the move and are thick in the backwaters including sandbars and oyster shell beds.

The fan is to propel me through shallow water where the outboard motor won't go without sucking up mud into the water pump.

As you requested Mr. Moderator, more pictures:
