As we continue to mend up a few things around the lodge that hurricane Laura left behind the north wind continues to blow it’s cold a_ _ off. Those brave enough to battle the wind are catching good numbers of flounder hiding back in the marsh. Grub curley tail’s rigged under a 1/4” ounce lead head worked slow on the bottom have proved deadly.

Below are the top seven lures to use for flounder.
Fishing for flounder is a lot easier after you’ve figured out the best lures and baits to catch them. We’ve spent years polling experts and learning how to catch the species ourselves, and these are by far the best flounder lures to add to your tackle box. Soft Plastic Grub or Paddletail Jigs
Rig with 1/4- to 3/8-ounce jig head and slowly hop the lure across the bottom around dock pilings, jetties and oyster bars. Three-inch size in White Firetail or CAL Paddletail in Nite Glow/Fire Tail or Gold Glitter imitates small baitfish or shrimp.
Similar shape and action as the grubs, the wavy motion of the deer hair is an added attraction. Slow-hops along the bottom, creating puffs. Hook Up Lures Inshore Premium Series in 1/4-ounce and 2/0 hook in chartreuse/white.
Meant to look like marine worms, the MirrOlure Little John Scented Twitchbaits in Tube Worm or Watermelon/Red Glitter should be allowed to sit for a moment before twitching to move the lure about six inches to trigger a strike.
A dead ringer for mud minnows or finger mullet, both flounder favorites, soft plastic shad tails like Matrix Shad or DOA CAL shad tails in Green Hornet or Stark Naked patterns bumped slowly along the bottom put plenty of flatfish in the box.
These scented artificials are hard for flounder to turn down. Rigged with a jig just heavy enough to reach bottom, they are best worked “dead stick” or with little movement. Pearl, Natural Molting and New Penny colors are all effective. Carolina anglers swear by Nuclear Chicken during the fall months.
Twitched slower than evolution through the strike zone, these realistic lookalikes in Near Clear, Root Beer/Gold Glitter or Holographic Clear are deadly on lurking flounder, especially in creek mouths, flats pot holes or beach troughs.
Aqua Clear Flounder Rig
A variation of the Texas combo, these New Jersey creations are offered in various colors of small rubber squid or nylon skirts; some include a blade for added flash. Dredge across the bottom and hang on
