flatfish

  1. Flatfish forum.
    Recently learnt that flatfish prey on gobies. I'm now wondering if you could livebait gobies/blennies/small fish etc. for Flounder or Plaice. Has anyone ever tried this or could provide me with further information? Any other unusual baits for flatfish?
  2. General Sea Angling Discussion
    Thought I'd chuck this on here to get some opinions... is this flattie which my mate caught a Flounder or a Plaice? I'm saying Flounder cos of the fins and the shape, other people are saying Plaice due to the spots! It doesn't look like a Plaice to me, but I may be wrong! What do people think?

  9. Float Fishing Forum
    Has anyone had any success float fishing for flounder? I've seen a person doing it before, but from 100 yards away or so and was successfully catching quite a few. Can't find much on the internet apart from one guy using freshwater floats in an estuary. Caught quite a few so the guide shows...
