It’s All About the Destination
Some destinations are known for producing big fish. Time it right and you can catch some very big flounder.
Upsize Your Baits Just a Little
Bigger flounder will eat bigger baits. Upsize your bull minnows or go to a decent-sized pinfish if you want to catch a bigger flounder.
Fish Deeper While Inshore
Many of the bigger flounder will be just a little bit deeper than a lot of the smaller fish. Target these bigger flounder by fishing just a little deeper. For example, if you are fishing docks in 3 to 6 feet of water and you’re catching fish, try to find some docks that go a little deeper, so maybe 4 to 8 feet or even 10 feet of water. You won’t always catch bigger fish by going deeper, but you will catch more big flounder over time if you target a little deeper water.
Use Live Bait
It’s tough to beat live bait. This is a no brainer.
