Most surf fishermen want to long-bomb their rig as far as they can. This video proves that for flounder, closer can be better.
Armed with relatively light gear, John Skinner shows us an overlooked secret sweet spot in the surf where flounder like to hang in wait for their prey. He’s practically catching these fish where you’d set up a Sunday afternoon picnic!
It’s also a great reminder for all of us fishermen to keep our bait in the water until the last possible second.
These flounder have been found out skulking away just out of sight in the beach trough.
With some fairly universal fishing gear and comfortable footwear you could be on beach flounder too!
