    Default No reds, but a nice flounder at willis

    I took my father in law fishing down here and he hooked a heck of a nice flounder down there in Hubert at Willis Landing. 2/0 hook, no weight, and I think the mullet was already chomped in half! Anyways, the flounder liked it! Great fight, even better to eat! 22inches, roughly 4.5 lbs... not positive on the weight but did get a good measurement.

    Nice flattie must have been really hungry! How do you like fishing around Willis? Never fished there but thought about it.

    How did the water look today? Is it still dirty or has it cleared up? Any good size (3"-4") finger mullets around there?

    Brian, great job on the flounder. They are very good eating most any way. My dad used to bake one about that size and put onions, potatoes, and bacon strip on top. YUMMY!
