Flounder inhabit a wide variety of coastal habitats including brackish water rivers, tidal creeks, bays, estuaries, beaches, muddy or sandy bottoms and near-shore rocky bottoms. Anglers generally use light spinning tackle and often target flounder close to shoreline structure including stumps, dock piles, seawalls and bridge piles, which are good points of ambush. Flounder are ambush predators that feed primarily by sight – so it is often helpful to periodically bump the bait across the bottom to make it more visible.
Flounder like to hide and ambush their prey, so the trick to catching them is to move enticing bait across their path and wait for them to strike. Since flounder lie sideways on the ground, it takes a few extra seconds for them to get a grip on the bait. Before reeling the fish in, wait about 5 seconds to make sure its mouth is definitely hooked.
