How to Catch Flounder, North and South
Fishing in 90 feet of water off Cape Canaveral, Florida, the furthest thing from my mind was flounder. But when Capt. Glyn Austin of Going Coastal Charters yanked a 5-pounder over the gunwale, I immediately set up with a fish-finder rig and sent a live pogy to the bottom. Within seconds I felt the telltale taps of a flatfish mouthing the big bait. After a 5-count, I locked the reel, set back, and I was on. Thanks to my Jersey fluke tactics, a doormat-size 8-pound southern flounder soon hit the deck.
