Flounder Face Daylight has a lot to do with it. Those big flounder hens are pretty ugly.
The less they are seen the better chance of a successful spawn, so less light at lower depths is a help.
Peculiarly also coming into play is the amount of residual Viagra that seeps through the waste waster and into the bays.
It helps the spawn activity, but recent studies are now finding that the amount of birth control drugs infiltrating the bays in the same manner as Viagra does is negating the results of the blue induced spawn.

Skavatar is temperature the only factor in the spawn? i know some animals go by the amount of daylight to signal spawning.

Continental Shelf water where the flounder spawn isn’t too terrible bad, deeper GOM definitely running above long term average temperature.

Need some cooler weather on the gulf soon for the flounder.
Flounder spawn in 50' to 100' of water. The long term water temperature has been on the increase since the mid 1990's.

Probably due more to natural cycles and the AMO being in its warm phase. The AMO stands for Atlantic Multidecadal Oscillation which is a very discernible natural pattern of sea surface temperatures that flips between warm (positive) and cold (negative) phases.

As you can see from the graph that the total cycle has a periodicity of about 60 years + or -. If the pattern continues the AMO should flip back to its colder phase in the around 2025 give or take a few years. Until then I don't expect much in the way of a flounder rebound. I find it interesting that the biologists did not mention this well know fluctuation of water temps and it's possible impacts.

As a commercial for hire to the recreational angler Blue Fin I see what your trying to say- but that is simply not true

TPWD has a team of biologists with degrees and can make decisions on their own without anyone’s say so.... but TX chooses to include Recs and Commercials into to decision making process
Really?

I was at the meetings and it certainly seemed to me that they were pushing for changes...

Blue Fin Charters Whatever cca is pushing is what will be put into motion.

karstopo There has been another thread mentioning a change to 2 fish, 17" minimum beginning September 1, 2020, but I haven't seen anything put out to the public from TP&W itself confirming this or from any other publication.

Muddskipper Fisheries department presents data and scoping meetings surveys in spring to the commission in Austin

Decisions, if any will come out of that meeting and if there is a change it will take place next fall

NOTE: this warm winter if not helping the flounder spawn - so I would expect a change
