What no one told you about flounder gigging

  1. 1. What No One Told You About Flounder Gigging Proper LED Flounder Lights and fishing equipment are necessary for getting a good catch of flounders.The article focuses on certain helpful tricks. Flounder gigging can be fun if you are properly equipped for it. If you are a first-timer then you need the right gigging instrument, permissions, proper weather conditions, and of course lights. Here are some pointers that can help you get a good catch. 1. Flounders can be found in shallow waters where you can either wade or may be take a shallow boat. The fish usually camouflages in the sand waiting to catch shrimps and other small prey. 2. Determining the condition of wind is important. Fishing experts suggest to go fishing when the wind is calm or very low which is usually during the summer and spring months. Try the calmer side of the marsh or island if there is a wind. 3. The flounders usually come in when the tide is rising. The rising water brings in the fish and prevents the shallow boats from landing on dry ground. The smaller ones come in first and then the larger ones.
  2. 2. 4. The gigging instrument should look like a pitch fork with a long handle. Flounders are hard to spot because they remain hidden but they travel in groups. So if you have spotted at least one then there will be others around. Look for flounders in waters where you can see baitfish. After spotting a legal sized one gig it immediately and put it in the cooler. 5. Powerful lights are necessary to find the fish since they sometimes change their color and camouflage with the surroundings. Earlier incandescent ones were used but now Light Emitting Diodes or LEDs are replacing them fast. 6. Choosing LEDs over incandescent ones makes sense because they emit bright luminescence that allows fish to be caught easily in the dark waters. They spread evenly over a larger area lighting everything up. The halogens used to produce focused lights like a hotspot which did not make fishing easier. 7. The light consumes minimum power for producing the high powered beams and is highly energy efficient. 8. You can either use handheld ones or those attached to the boats. All of these are designed to be submersible so that spotting a flounder becomes easy. But you may need someone to hold the light for you so that the fish can be gigged properly. Handheld lights can almost follow the fish and light up the muddy waters. 9. Maintenance of the submersible LED flounder Lights is easy since they are corrosion resistant to both sweet and salty water and extremely hardy. Unlike the incandescent lights they don’t have a filament which can break easily in harsh wind or rough handling. 10. The LED Flounder Lights can last for almost 40,000 hours so just buy one and forget about buying anymore for the next five years. 11. Before going fishing check the rules and regulations to ascertain how many flounders you are allowed to catch. Every region has a cap on the amount of fish per day per person. It is done to conserve the fish as well as allow angling.
