    after a slow paddle over to deeper water in flat calm conditions,i could see the odd splash and a few birds feeding..Soon had a hook up and nice little yellow eyed mullet was at the boat..Another few casts and a good take a fast run ,and i knew it was a better fish..After a good fight and a few trial runs itailed a nice 6.5lb trout into the canoe.

    Well done Noeyedeer. VC there are those in the know that catch flounder on a small hook by using a sweet corn burley and a kernel of sweet corn on the smallest of hooks. Netting and even spearing is easier though. Damn I love flounder.
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    i have had some success with a teaspoon head tied on just above a small hook with bait on it...You just drag the spoon along the bottom slowly stirring things up and the flounders love it.

    I prefer to fish an outgoing tide ,till about an hour after the turn..to fish the channels .But the day i took these pics the tide was well in and still rising,and i just drifted and fish my way in with it....The fish are always there, just more water.
