Wikipedia..."Gigging" is the
practice of hunting fish. A "gig" refers to any long pole
which has been tipped with a multi-pronged spear. The gig pole
ranges in length from 8 to 14 feet and typically has three or four
barbed tines similar to a trident.
Fishing at Night Provides an Awesome Parade of Brilliant Stars
Moonrise perhaps & plenty of Tasty Flounder just below the surface!
It's a "flat" fish that spends most of its life lying and swimming
along sandy bottom shores, inlets, flats & grassy areas. The
flounder's eyes are both on the left-side of the body and it can
camouflage itself very well. Most flounder are between 12 and
15 inches long, but the females can reach a length of 25".
Adult flounder enter shallow water at night where they lie on the
bottom, partially buried & wait for prey.
Adult flounder will leave the bays and head toward the gulf for
spawning during the winter months but some remain behind and spend
the winter inshore. The "Fall Migration" is characterized with
a large concentration during the migration period. Large
quantities of flounder heading out to the gulf is known as the "Fall
Flounder Migration". Except for the month of November and part
of December, flounder can be fished year-round. Texas Parks
and Wildlife Service closes flounder fishing when they are spawning
so that they can replenish themselves and rightfully so.
