The Flounder Run is On!
It has been awhile since I have posted but I have been busy fishing. Its hard to fish 3-4 times each week. Just kidding!
A few good cold fronts have come though the Galveston area and the flounder have started their yearly migration to the Gulf. A north wind was howling up to 25 mph yesterday but we were able to pull out a few under size flounder. I knew the tempertature was going to drop again overnight so we planned a family flounder trip.
Just as I thought. The winds calmed today and we had great blue skies. A perfect day for the family. I had mud minnows left over from the day before so I loaded up on live shrimp to see if I could do better. Aparently the flounder had a taste for shrimp today. My first cast, I lost a 25+ inch door mat. One of the bigger flounders I have seen in a long time.
As the day progressed we alll caught our fair share of undersize flounder and 5 keepers. Not too bad since the flounder run is still in the intial stages. November is typically better but the Texas Parks and Wildlife drop the limit to 2 flounder during the big portion of the run. Time to fill the freezers before November!.
