Michael Hall of Carolina Beach catches a lot of Cape Fear River flounder, including some nice citation flatfish. However, his idea of a really nice flounder was upgraded with his most recent catch, when his fishing trip ended with Hall’s personal best flounder, a 9-pound, 2-ounce doormat.
If you want to get kids involved in the outdoors, taking them flounder gigging is a great way to do it. It’s summertime, and kids love staying up late this time of year. And with no school to prepare for each morning, most parents are okay with late bedtimes for them. And nighttime is the perfect time for gigging flounder.

Anglers get plenty of opportunities to reach their limit with a bucketful of mud minnows or their favorite soft-plastic bait, but the inshore lairs aren’t the only places to load up on a limit of flounder either.
In the middle of the summer, the Grand Strand’s public waterways fill up with just about every type of vessel imaginable, from kayaks and jet skis to the 200-foot gambling ships loaded with vacationers looking to hit the jackpot. Folks looking to take home the top fishing prize should troll their way to Little River’s flounder grounds, where a bona fide reward is lurking below the water’s surface.
