It has been a while since I posted anything, so here is the flounder gigging update. The last 20 nights of gigging have been good, with limits on every trip, even in some terrible weather and tide conditions. Some nights have been fast action with limits in less than an hour, and other trips have taken 5-6 hours to get a limit. The weather and tides have been constantly changing over the last few weeks, making the fish move to new areas every few days. The changing patterns are beneficial, as stagnant weather/tide patterns tend to make the fish less active. Water clarity has become worse over the last week, with hot water holding more sediment and less oxygen. As scorching afternoon temperatures become the norm, water clarity has been poor early in the evening, getting better around midnight as the flats cool off. Fish size has been steady, with most in the 14-19" range and a rare fish in the 20-25" range. Gigging should remain good through the rest of summer, and fish size should slowly increase. I only have a handful of open dates for the rest of 2019, so book soon if you want a trip. Open dates for the remainder of 2019 are listed below.
