Took my cousin and the boat out Saturday morning looking for some early flounder. Wind was howling but managed to find a few creeks that were fishable. Hooked an over slot Red (well over 30") early in the morning....we fought it for maybe 10 minutes before losing him on some dock pilings. We were able to see him several times as he ran by the boat!!! he bit a 4" chartreuse swimming mullet Gulp on a 1/2 ounce jig head. We generally fish ultralight, so the larger fish are very tough to stop! After all the excitement, we had to really search for our next bite. After a few hours we finally located 3 trout and 3 flounder. The flounder were between 10-14"....no keepers....the trout were all about 12". The trout came on Gulp Mantis while the flounder were caught on 4" Gulp swimming mullet's. Through the day and back at the ramp, we didn't locate anyone that had caught a keeper flounder. Between the wind and it still being a little early in our area the fishing is still a little slow. We did catch a couple dozen croakers on various Gulp baits...but they were more of a nuisance, as they were too small to eat.
