New Smyrna Beach Flounder

A buddy of mine that fishes in New Smyrna quite a bit has been catching Flounder after Flounder. Some of them in the 20” range. This is how he does it:

  • 2/0 Circle Hook
  • 12” 20lb Fluorocarbon Leader
  • Swivel
  • 1/2oz egg sinker
  • Finger mullet

He drags the mullet along the bottom until he gets a strike. Once a strike is detected he allows the flounder time to get the mullet in its mouth and then he starts the retrieve! Flounder are not the strongest fighters so they can be muscled away from structure if needed!

With the mullet run still strong, there is plenty of bait!
