How to Catch Flounder

Hi, my name is Chickenboy and I am a Flounderholic.  Yes I have an addiction.  I am addicted to catching flounder.  I probably catch more flounder than anybody on the Gulf Coast.  I ain't bragging, I am really not.  I just like to catch flounder with my chickenboy lures.  It's not my fault that I like catching flounder, it is the flounder's fault.  That "thump" or "thump thump" is a FIX for me like none other.  I catch flounder all year long, not just during the flounder run in the late fall. 

I would like to share with you how to catch more flounder.  If you follow my specific instructions I guarantee you, you will catch more flounder. 

Here goes:
1.  Hold your mouth right, if you ain't holding your mouth right, don't even go fishing.  If you are stressed out or under a lot of pressure from work or family or whatever - stay home - cause you ain't catching no flounder this day - it takes patience.

2.  Flounder bite 3 ways - I said 3 ways, not 1, not 2, but 3 ways.  Now pay close attention and don't think you know it all.  Just keep reading.   I am trying to help you.

3.  Flounder bite 3 ways.
Thump or
Thump Thump or
Dead Weight - Meaning it is like you are reeling in a brick or something - no thump - just dead weght

4.  DO NOT SET THE HOOK when you feel a
Thump or
Thump Thump or
Dead Weight

5. DO NOT SET THE HOOK when you feel a
Thump or
Thump Thump or
Dead Weight

6. DO NOT SET THE HOOK when you feel a
Thump or
Thump Thump or
Dead Weight

7.  When you feel a
Thump or
Thump Thump or
Dead Weight
then immediately release your bail on your reel and

wait

and

and

wait

for a minimum of 30-45 seconds

8.  Then slowly tighten your line to determine if the flounder is on there.

9.  If so, set the hook and let the fun begin.

10.  If the flounder is not on your hook, throw in the exact same place, because flounder don't move around that much.


If you follow the above instructions you will greatly increase your flounder catches.

It is now July 16, 2013 and I am updating what I wrote above.  I wrote the narrative "How to Catch Flounder" several years ago and I feel like it is time to update it with any new findings.  I am amazed as I travel the Gulf Coast doing fishing related trade shows that so many people ask me how I catch so many flounder.  I simply tell them exactly what you just read above.  The amazing thing is most fishermen believe if they feel a bite that they "have" to set the hook.  When it comes to catching flounder, setting the hook immediately is not what you want to do.  Thus I count slowly to 30 or 45, most times 45 or even longer.  Many times I count to 60 before I test my line to determine whether the flounder is on there or not.

Now for my update on "How to Catch Flounder" after catching 100s of flounder since I originally wrote and posted the above narrative.

My update is:  I don't  have anything new to report.  Just do what I already told you to do.  It works!
