    One word: Waders

    I'm going to try going out just to see what's out there. Clear water and low tides should help to cover a bunch of ground at least.

    Tex-

    Flounder are caught year round the majority are caught during the Fall Flounder Run. This is when the flounder leave the bays after the Summer. The Spring Run which is coming up is not as big as the Fall but still highly productive.

    Over the last few years & especially in the last few months many steps have been taken in order to insure that the flounder population remains strong in Texas Bay Systems. In doing so regulations are being proposed that will cut the bag limit in half from where it is currently at 10 down to 5. No gigging dates might be set during the Fall run as many big females make there way out to spawn etc.

    Last year before Ike, the Club helped with a Flounder Restocking Program at Lutes Marine on Chocolate Bayou. http://www.fishwestend.com/west-end-anglers-news You should be able to find something written up about it on the link above. Not to mention also in the forums.

    MuddSkipper here on the website has a lot of knowledge and has been in close contact and communication with Chester Moore whom you probably know of already as the guy who writes the Saltwater Books you see at Academy and Cutrate (Fishing Tacle Unlimited) I'm sure many other locations as well.

    There are a few reports about the TPWD meetings that have been held in the League City area most are posted on the Forum. Do a search about TPWD and Flounder and you should get some good hits here on the site.

    If you need help learning how to go gig let me know. I'll take you out there. I've taught many here on the website and on 2COOL, there's no secret art to it just have to be patient. Once you spot one you'll know what your looking for and then your hooked... or should I say GIGGED
