Just one of those days... (Flounder)

I woke to a text from my friend David, to tell me about his early morning flounder session, 15 flounder and 2 brown trout on lures in a short two and a half hour session. Needless to say I was chomping at the bit to get back down and fish for the flounder again, especially as they seemed to be around in numbers and the conditions were perfect also. So I headed down to fish the evening tide with David and as I arrived he was already landing his third fish. I rigged up as quick as I could and got to work trying to catch my first flounder of the session but soon realised that it was just going to be one of those days for me where nothing seemed to go quite to plan for me. David on the other hand seemed to just have the knack with the flounder, and was landing fish after fish. I eventually caught a couple of flounder and thankfully didn't blank. However David did much better and ended up catching 21 flounder in the session. Surprisingly, 11 of them were caught on a size 0 Mepps. Check out his report on the link below.
