I love to catch all of the “big four” fish in the Texas coastal bays. The long power runs of a redfish are super exciting. The head shaking leaps of a speckled trout are beautiful. The black drum is not spectacular, but he is a real slugger.
But, my favorite of the four fish is the flounder. The flounder’s bite is subtle, much like a black bass taking a plastic worm. Sometimes you feel a light tap and then pressure. Most of the time the lure just feels weighty.
That’s a flounder bite.
