Summer Flounder tip
Because of the design of the flounder and the position of its mouth it must swallow food head first. So if fishing with live bait or similar, don't hookup as if your slamming a largemouth bass. Count to three, then set your hook. This is enough time for them to posion bait for swallowing and will increase hookups. Give it a try.
