depends you could need a net either drag or set. or spearing them. in which case this time or year i would recommend waders or a wetsuit aand booties a flounder light and a spear. rod i would say a light rod with sensitive tip light line up to about 8kg maybe small hooks on a running rig or with a sinker at each end of the trace. bait would be worms/shellfish/yabbies27/07/2010 at 9:13 am #15794baitmanParticipant
when i was a kid i’d catch them on worms or mixed vegies from the freezer (throw in a handfull as ground bait and make up a ledger ring with multiple small hooks making sure they lay flat on the bottom. this method works good when the tide is pushing over new ground , the flounder push forward with the water picking up what they can find).
that way is good fun other than that like the ginga said spear and net.27/07/2010 at 9:19 am #15795St_PaulParticipant

can you catch them in the surf zone28/07/2010 at 11:12 am #15802MiliwolfParticipant
Heard second hand of someone catching quite a few in the surf zone, especially the first calm conditions after a storm.
I have caught my only flounder by dragging cooked shrimp across the sea floor from my kayak (water was quite deep, maybe 10m+). Only tried this method once for maybe 30 minutes and had success.29/07/2010 at 7:41 am #15807

Caught a flounder off the pier on a sabiki and either chicken heart or bonito for bait. Seen another, caught can’t remember what bait. Definitely not common on that sort of setup tho.
