Fishing For Flounder
Flounder are truly a unique catch. They’re known as “flatfish,” and for good reason. Their bodies are flat, and they typically lie at the bottom of shallow waters, waiting for their prey. Flounder have eyes located on just one side of their bodies, making it easier for them to lie undetected on the creek, inlet, or harbor floor. With these features, they’re able to easily blend in with their environment, making them a worthy predator for small fish and invertebrates—and a great challenge for anglers!
How To Catch Flounder
Summer is the best time to catch flounder in the Charleston area—especially June, because flounder follow baitfish to warm, shallow waters. You’ll likely use live bait to catch flounder, like anchovies, mullet, shrimp, worms, or crabs.
Whether you’re a beginner or a pro, Captain Adam will work to provide you with the best opportunity to catch a stunning flounder (or two!). The best places to drop your line in the Charleston area are near structures like piers and docks, and at the mouths of saltwater creeks. If you do catch a flounder, you’ll be able to keep it if it’s above the legal 12” minimum size limit, which is in place to help ensure the health of South Carolina’s flounder populations.
