Flounder migrate into the bay in the spring and out again in the fall. They don’t get in a big hurry in the spring so the bite is not consistent. After wintering in the gulf they begin to move into the bays around Panama City Florida in April, May and throughout the summer.
When the days begin to get shorter and the water cools the Flounder, like many of the species in St. Andrew Bay, begin to show signs of the spawn. Normally in September or October the Flounder begin their migration to the Gulf of Mexico. This migration will peak some time in November and has been known to be good as late as Thanksgiving. We can target these fish during the fall with artificial baits, catching limits and many more on a lot of days.
Table fare is excellent and can be cooked many different ways.
