Get ready for flounder season
Chris Douglas with Carolina ALL OUT went flounder gigging last season with Mike Laws on Harkers Island. With a daily limit of four per person in 2021, they collected a nice mess of flounder. The limit is down to one for the upcoming 2022 season in North Carolina, but the South Carolina limit is five per person/per day.
Rather than gigging with a traditional-looking gig that has a forked tip with multiple points, they’re using what’s known around the Crystal Coast as a walking gig, which is quickly gaining popularity throughout both Carolinas.
North Carolina’s 2022 season will run Sept. 1 through Sept. 30 with a 15-inch minimum size limit. South Carolina’s flounder fishery is open year-round with a 16-inch minimum size limit. The same size and creel limits apply to rod-and-reel fishing and to gigging.
