Re: what size hooks for beach flounder?

smells like fish

went out to the beach to get the incoming tide to try a spoon draged along the bottom,it was way to windy so i went to the estuery as it hooks around and is sheltered from the wind.
tried the spoon lure but every cast hooked up with weed even though the water conditions were clear so tied a leger rig with weights at each end to keep the bait (corn) flat on the ground.
waited for about 2 hours no bites at all, ever threw out plenty of corn as berly ,tide was coming in quite fast.
Do you need a liscence to fish the esturey?
