Flounder Gigging, Flounder Run, Spring Flounder Run -

The Spring flounder run is fast approaching and if you aren't familiar with it, you should be! This is one of the best times of the year to harvest flounder as they move in to the bays from offshore. While the Fall flounder run is more commonly known, the Spring flounder run can produce equal results. This week's blog discusses the Spring flounder run and includes supplementary information from the flounder gigging sports best guides. The Spring flounder run is not as publicly well-known as the Fall run, which often times makes for better fishing with less competition of other anglers....

WADING AND FLOUNDER GIGGING It's no secret that the brightest and most versatile flounder gigging lights available are the Swamp Eye Submersible Lights, but now it's time to figure out how to make the most of them!

Fall Flounder Run, Flounder Gigging, Flounder Run, Spring Flounder Run -

The best time of the year for flounder gigging is during the fall flounder run and the spring flounder run. These two flounder runs mark the beginning and end of the warmer weather along the coast, and are well known for producing consistent limits of flounder.  The Fall and Spring Flounder Run There are two major flounder migrations each year. They move inshore during the end of winter and start of spring after breeding, and they move offshore during the start of fall to start breeding again. The move inshore is very sporadic, but the move offshore during the fall is more...

Flounder Gigging, Rare Flounder -

t all started with an "Albino Flounder" harvested last weekend by a young man in Charleston, South Carolina. Several others commented calling it "piebald" and "leucistic" which are both possible color schemes, but we aren't biologists to confirm the proper nomenclature. We'll let you decide what you think the proper description is for this flounder.
