My favourate time of year is here.. the humble "flounder" are starting to hit the estuarys in mass after there winter spawning, the early peel of the crab has started and i for one cannot bloody wait to spend all summer targeting this beautifull yet sometimes not respected enough fish.

Its a fish i simply cannot get enough off, ever since my first fishing trip and my first ever catch which was a flounder ive never looked back. The feeling of hooking a 2lb flounder on a 6ft spinning rod with 6lb line is the best feeling ever!! Guys tell me about how amazing a feeling it is having a screaming reel of a bass on but for me its being on a muddy bank with plain ounce leads and quiver tip rods waiting and watching for the line to tighen then go slack!! Teasing...
So get the floating beads , sequins and beads ready.. flounder season is here .
Tight lines

The flounder is so underrated. I have to agree with you mate it's my favourite fish has well. If it's a summers day or -10c they never fail to put a smile on my face. We are so lucky that we have so many places around us to go fishing for them.

That's good to hear.

Hopefully I'll manage to get out myself before next Tuesday, I'll be going to fish the foreshore, I really love that spot.

Do they make good eating Wrighty I've never tried one and are they full of bones?:unsure:
They are beautifull to eat, people do say that flounder from estuarys can taste silty.. and flounder from a beach is nicer but yes, they are tastier than bass for me.
