Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

The heartthrob of the anglers of Atlantic Ocean, Flounders are nature's beauty found majorly at the ocean beds, coastal areas of sea and marshy estuaries. Flounders are pretty mishevieous by nature and hence love to hide and trap their prey. Hence, the plot of catching them lies in maneuvering live bait from one side to another and hold till they bash back.

Here are some of the cool techniques that would make you fill-in your bucket with wide variety of flounders.

Flounder Migration

Flounders find their way to the deep water areas. It can also be found near outer banks. You should also dawdle above the inshore sandbars and coastal zones where water level sees variation on spur of the moment. Flounders usually migrate to deeper watery bodies and dodges in the huge sandy out spreads that is nearly 30-40 miles seaward. Flounder lovers opine that they get variety in their buckets during the chilly winter months of the year.

Aiming Your Fish

September to the end of November happens to be the migration time of flounders. These finny tribes come out of little lakes and rivers and find their way for seas. Teeming up is prime during spring and sultry summers. The last year's crop vegetation facilitates for migration with old brood fish while the running year's breed already exists in the marshy water levels, prior to making any step further. Owing to this fact, you tend to catch innumerable flounders but of small sizes throughout freezy winters. This serves as the major reason why longer duration months of winter extend a huge role in boosting the stocks.

Ideal Tackle

What's your favorite tackle? You should make your tackle look appealing by featuring a minimum 6 foot casting rod along with a small black casting reel for baits. An ideal test line would stretch upto 12-pound - a little invisible. Indeed, a terminal tackle holds to be a standard flounder rig that highlights: 3/0-circle hook on a 14 inch 40 lb. of monofilament element.

The floating leader is annexed with a piscary sinker which is thereafter affixed to the line. These crafty sinkers look more so like little beads spun in a chain at each corner. These are long-length, sleek tools that could be dragged across the bottom.

Ultimate Baits

The usage of bait may vary from person to person and the fish category targeted. However, it is recommended to use a 2-5 inches of finger mullet. You should keep into consideration that mullets that are too little could not be attached to the hook and the excessively larger ones will not be able to hold flounder. With September moving ahead, finger mullets become rare. So, stock your baits now for a happy fishing tomorrow!

Selecting Perfect Lights

One of the most significant elements about gigging or fishing lights is the luminosity and light output with better spread of light. Your flounder gigging lights must ensure a better light spread to mark wide bottom area of illumination.
