Anyone try to gig for flounder around the Kent Island area?? Any luck in the Eastern bay??
Gigging flounder (and crabs for that matter) was also popular on the flats of south TX. We'd rig a jon boat with a 5 hp briggs and stratton with a small wooden prop and we'd have an air motor to slowly glide us across the flats (noisier than all hell though). Nothing safer than a bunch of drunk guys jumping around a boat in the dark with gigs and air motors cranked :thumbup:!!I live in VA now and have never heard mention of it here. I grew up in NC and we used to go flounder gigging all the time. Maybe it is just a NC thing?
