  4. Flounder or Plaice?

    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?
