Default Surf flounder fishing

Going to try fish for flounder from the surf for the first time ! I watched a few videos on rod action and rig set up . Have plenty of Gulp . I normally fish at the hook , think long walk . So is this type of fishing predawn ? Do the tides matter ? According to the videos I am looking for fairly calm water not big surf ? I don?t get out too often , I normally o when I can regardless of tides but I have 8 days off so I can be more tide sensitive. Hanks for the replies !! Tight lines to you all !

Couple of things. If you read the reports it seems that tide matters less than with stripers. Bucktail with gulp but use a teaser. I use gulp on the teaser and some use just the teaser. Fish close to the beach in the gullies and dips. Also edges of jetties. They are usually close to and in the wash

The lighter the better. My setup is a 7?6? rod rated up to 3/4 oz with a 2500 reel with 10 lb test braid. Dam, I can feel the fluke piss on the gulp. I just use a 1/2 oz sinker on the bottom with a 6? twisted dropper loop 12? up from the bottom. Most importantly, make that gulp dance. 4? mullet, 5? mullet, 5? grub, squido. Any color, it don?t matter, just make it dance. Yarddog uses a hammered spoon, try it. Me, I haven?t touched live bait in a few years. GULP!!!! I been slacking this year, but, the two previous years, 800 fluke on gulp. Like I said in the beginning, go light, and make that gulp dance.

Walk the beaches at low tide especially out front. When You get a WNW wind get there somehow. A good hole should look like this!

Nice thread. Like a Master Class. Half a dozen posts and you just cut the learning curve by about 3 years.

Do low tide. Fluke won't be where there is not water 24 hrs. At low tide you know it was water covered 24 hrs.

I was wading shin deep last weekend and had to keep smacking the rays on the head with my rod tip. The wash was filthy with the buggers. They chased all the fluke away too.

Watch the surf for jellyfish, if you get stung, you might need someone to pee on you to ease the pain

Thanks. I usually see them there late September. But then, I usually only get to fish there in the fall.
