We go Flounder Gigging at the EXACT SAME SPOT the World Record Flounder was caught, which was in 1983!


The WORLD RECORD FLOUNDER, 22.9 lbs, was caught in our hometown of Amelia Island in 1983!


"Flounder Gigging
is the Adventure of a
Night-Time.
"

  Although flounder can be gigged in almost any portion of the shoreline, it is more often productive to gig around jetties, oyster reefs or sandbars that extend from shore into the bay.
 
  Flounder do not swim continuously, so they tend to accumulate in such places in their search for food.
 
  Many persistent sportsmen enjoy going flounder gigging by wading tirelessly through the shallows.
 
  However, flounder gigging from the top deck of the Flounder Barge is more relaxing (we don't get into the water).
 
  Our Charter boat, the Flounder Barge, is complete with a depth finder, compass, vhf radio, GPS, compass, a full pilot cabin for weather protection and is powered by a very-quiet 90 horsepower Honda 4-stroke outboard and is Coast Guard safety rated. There is plenty of room for all of our passengers both inside and outside of the cabin.
 
  "The Flounder Barge, a 24' Aluminum Jon boat, floats in only 4" of water with a Flounder Gigging Charter!
 
  The bright Halogen lights of the Flounder Barge will illuminate the entire front half of the boat so that all six people of a flounder gigging adventure can participate in the fun at the same time!
 
  So, while you're enjoying the company of your friends and family, Capt Mac will navigate the boat over and around the backwater sandbars and shell beds and put you on lots of nice flounder!
 
  Messy sunscreen is not a requirement, as you will not be subjected to the uncomfortable and harmful ultraviolet rays of the hot, day-time sun. There is no smelly bait to handle, nor complicated rods, reels, fishing lines or knots to configure. You are just enjoying the cool and crisp air of the night as we quietly cruise along the salt water marshlands.

  USCG Captain Mac Daniel, is a 5th generation native of Amelia Island, Florida, an accomplished Flounder Gigger. He has gigged flounders up to 19.3 lbs!
 Mac started flounder gigging started at the young age of 10. With money he had made from mowing yards and advice from his Grandfather, he bought his first boat, a 6hp Johnson outboard, from Herb White's Marine in downtown Fernandina Beach. Later, he bought 10' Jon boat from Sears & Roebuck.
 Young Mac would pole along the edge of the Amelia River during the evening. He became quite adapt from an early age of spotting flounder with his home-made light set up on the Jon boat. At the age of 11 he gigged his first huge flounder.
  Mac enjoyed the sport so much that he would flounder gig several nights a week setting the alarm for the early morning. The real excitement of that each Flounder Gigging trip offered a new adventure and will each trip different sights -- from colorful sunsets, to star-filled skies and to marine life in their natural surroundings.
  Mac experimented with traditional ways of flounder gigging while thinking of new innovate ways of finding the fish. After many hours on the water he observed the different habits of the fish and he discovered successful flounder gigging meant being able to get to productive areas in the backwater around oyster shell beds, sandbars & marshs.
His savvy for flounder gigging grew over the years. In 2001, he engineered the plans for a 24' Aluminum boat with twelve (12) 500 watt Halogen lights and an Air Fan motor to be able to go at either tide and float in only inches of water with six people on board.
  In 2003, he obtained a USCG Captains License, built the FLOUNDER BARGE (which is still in operation in 2013), started the Flounder Gigging Charters Company and developed this Flounder Gigging web site to share his adventures with others.

  Best of all, there are many other types of fish that are caught in addition to Flounder. These include Sheepshead, Black Drum, Mullet, Bull Whiting, Red Drum (Redfish), Speckled Sea Trout & Blue Crabs! Some species are gigged and others are netted and we have all the necessary fishing equipment on the boat.
   Asked the ages of his Clients, Capt Daniel answers "I've had Clients aboard as young as two or as young-at-heart as ninety-four. Any age will be thrilled with our Adventure of a Night-time."





 

When asked what is the benefit of flounder gigging Capt Mac responds with a big smile "the best part of flounder gigging is you don't have messy live or dead bait, rods or reels, no tackle to worry about. There is no concern about getting any Sun Burn. Flounder Gigging is all visual and it's a great sport. I do up to three charters a night until I run out of Moonlight."
  According to Capt Daniel, "Flounder Gigging in Northeast Florida is the most fun I have known you can have on the water. The visibility of the marine life abounds underneath the custom-built lights of the Flounder Gigging boat. We get excellent results all year around."
  While on the night-time flounder gigging adventure, which normally departs at sunset, you will see the starry constellations, moon and big dipper as never before.
  The exciting sport of FLOUNDER GIGGING is available to anyone of any age. It is a completely unique charter fishing activity is fun for all and is completely enjoyable.
  Dress according for the weather and bring any non-alcoholic drinks and snacks you would like. Our fishing licenses covers all on board so no one needs a fishing license to go flounder gigging with us.
   Our flounder gigging charters truly are the Adventure of a Night-time. Call Captain Mac Daniel today at 904-277-3050 or e-mail him at floundergigging@aol.com to enjoy a once-in-a-life-time, wonderful fishing experience.
