I know that alot of commercial crab lads like to use flounder as a pot bait. I have also seen huss and conger getting caught in pots as well. I cant see why it wouldnt work mate so try it. I have caught smaller conger, bullhuss, a few largeish shore pollock and plenty of doggies on large strips of whitting and pollock in the past. Just give it a go, although i think you may find that its better off as a big fish bait.

the british tope record has been broken in nov 2006 with a man using flounder as bait....somewhere on the north devon coast if i'm right.
