awesome report John
gotta love the month flounder November run. It's the best of the year because they on the move heading out to the gulf . Magnificent catch on the doormats. Great report.
Cut Bait?
Capt., what are you referring to when you say "cut bait"?
catch a flounder cut the white under belly of one up, flounders are like cabinals use the under belly of a flounder and you can usually catch easy limits of flounder this way. And November is when flounder Are at their biggest they are moving out to the gulf with the white shrimp this time of year. This is the month when record flounders are caught. November is the month to target flounder, cause. They are pigging out and on the move. Sorry Capt. If I butted in.
