Quick question about Flounders. I 'might' deliberately target them with lures of some sort this weekend. . . . . . do they 'chase' lures, or ambush them as they come by ???
I have some small FinS fish Si, 3" I think. Also got some trailer baits which are about 2".Lewisman said:
Mr Zzippy said:good question Si!!! lol. i get all my stuff online!! so not sure about local tackle shops as i only tend to pick up bait or fly tying materials locally and from what ive seen its usually storm shads, sidewinders etc nothing finesse maybe someone else knows of a local shop for local people who have finesse sp`s.
Give it 5 years and it'll probably be the same hereBassorama said:Lewisman, I don't know if Japanese flounder are the same as our flounder, but i know for a fact that due to the pressure on bass in Japan, flounder fishing is becomming more and more popular there and they are having most success on 120mm slim sinking type lures and softies.
Dunno if that helps?
It's an estuary mark i'm tackling, so the sandy-bottom technique is a go'er. When you say a 'minnow', what size would you think ? As for the grubs & jig-heads . . again, what size do you think ?Tunny said:Lewisman,
I was reading on a japanese forum, that the favoured technique is a minnow fished slightly over depth (so it bumps the sandy bottom), Grab some small plastics grubs on a small jig head, Saltiga and other members have caught them this way. They fight surprisingly well for there size
Just found another bag of storm s/p's that i picked up last year (the misses came up trumps & tracked them down). Got quite a few 3" patterns in there, both single-hook & trebles.Lewisman said:I've got some Storm s/p's that i picked up in France last year (selling them off at 1 Euro per packet in Decathalon, so picked-up a big bag of them). Some of them look worth a try. I've also got some cheap eel's that i might cut down to size.
