Flounder On Fire (Four Hour River (ICW)

Trip Info

Summary

Fished with Frank Moulton and sons this morning. Flounder bite was off the hook.  Live bait was a little hard to come by and I figured we’d just use Gulps and Fish-Bites. Stopped at the Bait Shack at the Vilano Beach Ramp for some dead shrimp (just in case) and they’d had a live shrimp delivery late yesterday. Game On. We fished four spots and ended with 13 keeper flounder (released 1 short and lost 5-6) and 7 keeper Mangrove Snapper (3 over 2 pounds). Heck of a morning for a throw together trip. Right tide, right anglers, good bait and a little luck. OUTSTANDING. See you on the pond or in the backwater. Capt. Guy
