Flounder in the river

Reply
Have any of you guys ever heard of flounder being in the river as high as LaPlace? In the last month we have found 4 flounder in our cooling water strainers at the chemical plant I work at. They are about 4 inches long and look like the small flounder you catch in the trawls. Is this maybe some kind of sub-species of flounder? I will try to get a picture of the next oneā€¦

We use to catch them in our nets north of I-10 between Wiskey Bay and Krotz Springs, Biggest Flounder I ever seen came from there....only when the river's low.

that's not a Southern Flounder, it's a freshwater fish, there was a post with pics on here a while back about them. Forget the name, I'll check when I have time.

My buddies catch them in the Tangipahoa River in Kentwood. So yes, they do go further north than Laplace.
