What is a flounder?

Flounder is an extraordinarily unique species. As a flatfish, it lives on the bottom and have adapted to have both of their eyes on the top of their head. They are actually born with their eyes on either side, and as they go through flounder puberty one eye will migrate over and one side of their body will grow darker. This side will face upwards from the ground, and camouflage the flounder with the sea floor.

There are a number of different types of flounder:

Gulf Flounder (Paralichthys albigutta): The gulf flounder is found most commonly on the panhandle of Florida and in nearby waters, although it can be found around the Gulf.

Southern Flounder (Paralichthys lethostigma): The southern flounder is a common species on the Atlantic coast and around the Gulf.

Summer Flounder / Fluke (Paralichthys dentatus): The summer flounder is common from North Carolina to Massachusetts.

Reds are showing up in the flats in big schools and are getting ready to make their spawn run. Flounder have been on channel edges in big numbers. Drum have also been showing up around spoil islands. They have been easy to spot. Dead shrimp on a 1/16 to 1/8 ounce jig head has shown great results.
