    I’ve always thought this looked like a lot of fun and wonder if it’d work while flounder gigging...

    It’s when you take a boat with bright lights attached in or near the water out in shallow waters like the intracoastal waterway at night and gig flounder laying on the bottom of the waterway.

    I assume it’s a regional thing since I grew up doing it and in retrospect I’ve never seen it talked about except locally.

    I really miss bowfishing. Spent a ton of time and money in my late teens and early 20's doing it. Biggest carp we ever got was 44 pounds and it was the first fish my buddy and I ever killed. We have two around that size in our fishing pond right now but they're safe.
