I hate to say it but, flounders up here have all but disappeared. You'd think after all these years they'd start to rebound... maybe they never will!

I saw an osprey with one the other day so I gave it a shot on Tuesday, but after an hour and 3 green crabs, I still had my original bait even w/pounding and heavy chumming.  I quit at that point.

I get small ones in lobster traps often 

 

typically just down the edge of channels off a flat.   Typical flounder territory

That many fluke in southern Maine? Is that possible?

that's what I don't understand either. Summer flounder lay on the bottom on their 'right' sides. looking at the pics, position of mouth, gills on both white & dark sides as they lay in water, it looks like all are 'left-handed, eyes rotated to left side of fish as they matured

Spoke to some spear fishermen who suggested that there are plenty of winter flounder if you know where to look along with some trophy 'tog all the way up in the portland area.  I have tried and come up short a few times...
