How to Fish
Works well when casting in surf. Cast as far as possible. Keep a tight line as you would with any other flounder rig. Difference is when you get a bite, set the hook!!! In normal conditions, 3/4 oz works best. In strong surf, 1-1/2 oz will work better. You can drift fish or slow troll it. You can deep drop as well.
You rig the live bait through the eyes, or nostrils if you prefer. Then, put the bait keeper (included in the package) on the hook to keep the live bait on. Also, works very well with with real and artificial strip bait—4” to 6” long and 1/2” to 3/4” wide. Just hook 1/4” to 1/2” from head.
Artificial bait is a little tricky, but it works. Use some lures you don’t use too much to practice with, instead of expensive scented baits. You start approximately 3/4” back from head in the center of bottom of lure, angle back toward tail. Then roll onto hook as normal except you stick the hook out the center on the side of bait. Then you push back head enough to place pin into head. Push tight to eye of hook. Bait stays on lure very well when rigged properly. Keeps the bait running straight. Head down, tail up. It’s like its feeding on bottom or fixing to dive in sand, like many flounder bait do. Flounder bites sideways to any other fish. That’s the secret to the Flounder Fanatic™.
Get a Bite! Set the hook! Catch a Flounder!
