New to the area from Amelia Island Florida (right above Jacksonville, FL). I waded and gigged a lot down there with a green gigging light I made. I went out the other night and as soon as I was unloading there was a few folks unloading their kayaks and lights. I started out on the beach on the south side of Topsail and about a mile down saw some other folks wading heading my way so I turned around to see another group wading towards me the same way I just came from. I also saw plenty of boats out with their lights also. Man, never had this much competition in Florida for space. Spoke to a few folks and it sounds like there was a lot of tourist out gigging or at least people not from around here. Here is my set up.

I have been watching the developments on the conditions of the flounder. It sounds like they are getting depleted. What do you all see as the main cause? Florida had major issues with flounders, red drum and others like it due to gill nets. In November 1994, 72 percent of the voters said “yes” to the gill net ban in Florida. I don't think they enforced it for a good amount of time but since the banning of the gill nets FL has seen a large rise in the fish population. They now allow 10 flounder a day at 12 inches.
