12/2 Flounder Trip Rockport

Left last night just after dark, since the tide was supposed to be starting in around then. I took three guys who had never been floundering. Since the run seems to be later this year, I decided to run to some areas that I would normally flounder in early-mid November.

Just about the time we left, the wind really picked up and switched out of the west. The first shoreline was trashed. We moved further south to an area of protected shoreline. Good water - no fish.

Went still further south, until we were near the Lydia Ann Channel, and edged in right on top of them. I had a hard time convincing the guys not to gig 17 inch fish, and wait for bigger ones. I let them nudge the smaller fish with the side of the gig, and watch them swim, which kept them happy until we came across some better flounder. A limit of 8 fish doesn't take long to fill, and we got ours from 18" - 22" pretty quickly. I'll try to get some pics up later.

The wind and water conditions were pretty horrible, but there were plenty of fish in the bay. I wish I had been able to see the first stretches of shoreline, to report whether they are concentrated near the passes. But from what I saw, I'm hopeful we'll still have some good floundering to do after the 15th, when the limit finally goes back up to 5 per person.
