Hey guys, we went for our first floundering session this year at seaford. water was calm and not too cold, tide was out and moon was full.

We managed 3 flounder, 31cm, 30cm and a 25cm. and a shitload of sand crabs. I missed a good sized flathead and we saw lots of mullet and salmon, but they were waay too quik for us.

Looks to be a good season :) :)

there was another group of about 4 guys there floundering as well, they also picked up a good feed of crabs and actually managed to get a salmon.

ps i luuuuurve sand crabs!!!

Gday fatboi, well done that's a great haul! the mullet and salmon are hard to hit, you just need to take your chances, and maybe you'll get 1 in 20?
Um, I'm not sure if you know, but it's actually illegal to take sand crabs from the intertidal zone of PPB (that's from the shoreline to 2m deep), so be careful.

well, i know this topic is a little old, but i was down at seaford beach yesterday afternoon taking the dog for a swim. the water was beautiful and warm, and there was very little wind. looked like it would have made an excellent evening for floundering.

pity i dont have any gear and have never actually been floundering, else i would have been there in a flash :woot:

anyone been having any luck around the peninsula recently, i'm wondering whether i should pick up a light and a spear and start having a go..

i would definately get a spear/light and give it a go...its really not that hard...only i would recommend using chest waders...i guess others do it in shorts and thongs but i don't want to get my toes bitten off by crabs etc! :woot:
