Where Found:
Inshore on sandy or mud bottoms, often ranging into tidal creeks. Flounder are often gigged around sand bars and near-shore rocky reefs
.
Southern Flounder size:
1 to 21 pounds.
Other Common Names: Fluke, flat-fish, flattie, doormat , mat.
Interesting Facts:
The flounder hatches into usual fish form, but right eye migrates over to left side early in life. It is a bottom dweller, is thought to spawn offshore, migrates back into the shallows during the Spring and Summer months and feeds on crustaceans and small fishes.
Diet:
Young flounder feed on crustaceans, while older flounder eat mostly fish.
Habitat: 
The flounder is an ambush feeder and will wait patiently for something to eat that comes by its ambush spot. Running tidal water in small cuts or rocky areas are excellent places to find flounder. They often times bury themselves under sand or silt as they wait for food to enter their area. Prime gigging season is during the "flounder run" in the Spring.
Flounder Gigging:
Flounder Gigging is the best method for taking flounder. We, at Flounder Gigging LLC, cruise the shallows in a special flat bottom boat, complete with under water bright lights and an air fan motor and gig the flounder with a (multi pronged) Aluminum gig as it lays waiting for its dinner
.
  The flounder is much more than an exciting sports fish or a delicious food fish.
  This amazing creature from the goes through an incredible transformation that takes it from a normal appearing fish at birth to a round, flat fish in adulthood.
  These interesting fish prefer to make their habitat at the bottom of most warm or moderate oceans but can be found in waters throughout the world including some arctic areas.
 They are mostly found in the shallow waters along the coast where they manage to blend so well with their surroundings that they are hard to see. Depending on the species, some flounder are only inches long while others, such as the halibut reach several feet in length.
  There are four Flounder families, and close to one hundred species. The most distinguishing characteristic of the flounder is the shape of their bodies which it is believed has evolved over the years from a more perch like body shape to the extensively round and flattened body of a bottom dweller.
  One of the more interesting aspects of this type of evolution is that it begins when the flounder has just hatched and continues until adulthood is reached.
  The flounder is left-eyed, and is most readily separated from its close relatives by the lack of prominent ocellated spots on the body.
  It does possess numerous diffuse dark spots and blotches on the olive-brown eyed side and fins, but these are not conspicuous and tend to disappear in large fish.
  The species is very tolerant of a wide range in water temperature (50 to 90F) and salinity (0 to 36 ppt).
  In fact, Southern Flounders are frequently found in brackish and even fresh waters, where salinities fluctuate from 0 to 20 ppt.
  No other flounder inhabiting the east coast of the United States is regularly encountered in this type of environment.
  In most species of flounder spawning takes place during the warmer months of the year.
  Most species migrate to deeper waters for their chosen spawning site.
  After spawning, the eggs are deposited by the females of the species where they float in the water aided by a tiny oil bubble in each egg.
  With some species they remain near the bottoms within an area of vegetation, while in other species the eggs rise to the shallow surface.
  Once they hatch the tiny larvae have the appearance of most other fish with the tiny eyes on either side of its head.
  The young fish will drift along in the water freely feeding on plankton and tiny crustaceans.
