PORT ARTHUR — Flounder will feed in deep water but tend to concentrate around depth changes, so look for drop-offs and give the drop-shot rig a try. If you do not know what they look like do an Internet search. There are tons of references.
#Seasonality –The bite does not seem to slow as much in the summer as do the flounder in the bays.
I believe this is due to more stable, slightly cooler water conditions that provide more dissolved oxygen which in turns keeps the fish feeding more aggressively. Think about that if you get in the mood flounder during the dog days of Summer.
The great thing about targeting flounder in the rivers is that you can fish in virtually any wind and for many of us it means fishing closer to home and saving a few bucks in gas (a precious commodity these days).
Fire me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and let me know how you do in your river flounder quests. I would love to hear from you.
