Impressive Flounders

According to the Cape Gazette, some very impressive flounders are being caught off squid and minnows, strip baits, live spot and smelt all around the Delaware coast. Ironically, none of the restaurants in town serve flounder. I can remember when all seafood restaurants used to serve flounder. Today the species is almost fished out.

Flounders are predatory fish. They blend into the sandy bottom and then ambush their prey. Their eyes migrate from one side of their body to the other as they develop. I’m not making any of this up.
