how are you rigging the shrimp troutfisher?and raw or cooked?have tried baitfishing for flounder with limited success..have only ever had one (sole)at conway flat on cooked prawn while retrieving(fluke).23/02/2015 at 6:18 pm #25487
just the small cooked ones in the blue bag, pams ones I think.
normally just have a sinker at the bottom of the rig then two droppers above with size 6 hooks and another sinker above a swivel on the leader.
if you retrieve slowly quite often the flounders will grab the bait as they are attracted as it kicks up sand etc.24/02/2015 at 8:36 am #25490
