I don't know what kind of filet your going to get out of a 13" flounder if you chose to eat them...
1. they are not fluke, but rather winter flounder.
2. as I stated, with a 2 fish limit, the fishery is essentially closed
3. the season is limited:
Winter Flounder
The minimum size limit for winter flounder is 12 inches. For winter flounder the open season is March 23 to May 21. The possession limit is 2 fish per angler per day.
