Do Flounder Gather or are they Individual to Feed?


A Gathering of Flounder

Flounder both gather or lay individually in the shallows to feed. One side (the white side) of the Flounder is stark white and faces the sea floor bottom. The other side, is camouflaged to avoid detection from prey and both eyes are found on this side.  Call or text us or at 904-556-0230.

Where are Flounder found?

Oyster shell beds (see previous video), Sandbars, along the edge of the Marsh Grass. They will lay along the edge of the water only 1" deep or they will lay in up to 3' of water.

Capt Mac knows where and how to find them!

  1. Your charter group will be your group only, 2. The state limit is 10 flounder per person, 3. We include your salt-water fishing license, 4. Our Sunset Charter departs at Sunset, 5. All your fishing equipment is included, 6. Children are always welcome and we provide all life vests, 7. Besides Flounder you can also gig Sheepshead, Black Drum, Mullet & Whiting. You can also net Red Drum (Redfish), Speckled Trout and Blue Crabs. 8. Since we don't use bait we don't waste valuable fishing time trying to find bait, 9. We fish under the stars and Moon light so there are no harmful ultraviolet rays of the Sun to be concerned about (no messy sunscreen needed), 10. There is no long, bouncy boat ride over off-shore waves to eat into your fishing time (we fish only in the smooth inland waters), 11. Sea sickness is never an issue because we are always in the back water and only a few feet from land (most of your fishing is done only a few feet from land in a very safe 4" to 12" of water as skim the mud flats, sandbars, oyster shell beds and marsh grass areas looking for Flounder, Sheepshead, etc), 12. Our completely enclosed full cabin gives maximum protection from the elements - no open-boat, windy boat rides! 13. There is plenty of comfortable seating for eveyone, 14. Capt Mac gives you a brief Flounder 101 course so that you can use proven techniques to harvest the Fish, 15. Our Adventures are very visual both below and above the water line. On the shoreline, we typically see Spoonbills (birds), Great Herons, Pelicans, Ducks, Sea gulls, Manatees, Raccoons, Opossums & sometimes Peregrine Falcons. 16. So get ready to have lots of fun!
