Know the Tides

Tidal Changes are Key

Just like most fish that are caught inshore, the tides will play a big role in where, when and how flounder will feed.  Moving water is key, so make sure to fish during the tidal changes.

Fish a High Tide

During the high tides, flounder will move into the shallow water cover and structure such as docks, poles, sea walls and oyster beds.  You have a lot of options during the high tide.

Fish a Low Tide

During the low tide, you will find more flounder in the channels and at the mouths of the inlets and tidal creeks.  Fish the deeper water near their shallow water hangouts and you will find some flounder.
