Thanks Roosters. From what I have read clousers work well for flounder. Do you know if the reds are there this time of year? that would be great as I have always had good luck with reds.

Me and my dad would fish all year long, But if i remember correctly we caught more in fall. If you go spin fishing, Go to the sand, Dig in were the waves are coming in (have to be quick) and you will find little buglike creatures. We called them sand flees. Hook those on and you will be catching reds in no time!

I know exactly what you mean. I gave those a shot in the surf in OBX last time I was there and was hooking big croaker as soon as it hit bottom.

I read some reports online and sounds like the big flounder are in at least 15' of water now which I will likely not be able to get to. So I'm hoping for some small flounder and snapper blues on the fly and a red would really be awesome. Will post a report when I get back.

Quick report:
Saw my backing for the first time today...way too much for comfort actually. I hooked a 3 ft wide cownose ray on my second cast this morning. When the 5x leader snapped half an hour later, it was probably 200 ft away and it did not seem to me like I was gonna wear it out anytime soon! Whenever I tried to bear down and gain some line it would just get PO'ed and next thing I knew another 50 ft of line was gone. Think I needed a 20 wt rod for that guy. 5 wt wasn't getting it done lol.

Yesterday (first time FF-ing the salt) I caught a pair of little black sea bass on a clouser minnow so at least I wont get skunked for the trip. Still looking to get a flounder or bluefish on the fly but i have located both with spinning tackle so it shouldn't be long!

Got a blue this morning. I was over estimating their size here, turns out my smallest fly is still too big for most of them. Saw a few chasing that were smaller than this one and just tugging on the tail of the fly.

And Yeah those rays are fun! I remember we would always unintentionally snag them and fight them in, The ones over 5 feet (common around VA coast) would break us off almost immediately!

Thanks Roosters! So far the score is:

Spinning gear: 3 flounder in 3 outings, one skunk

Fly rod: 2 sea bass, 1 bluefish, 1 shad, and a lost stingray in four outings, no skunks.

Tomorrow will be the last day and I will only have fly tackle. Time is running out to get a flounder!

No flounder on the fly but I did catch a sea bass to stay skunk-free

If you are after flounder in the back bays and there aren't any blues around something like a white or black muddler marabou twitched subsurface over sandy bottoms in 1 to 3 feet of water will get you action.Flounder lay on the bottom and just wait for prey to swim over.You do want a rod with backbone as they do suck in their prey but have such hard mouths hard to set hook .
If you have have been getting a lot of hits from fish with some weight but little fight that just seem to get off for no reason,its a flounder.
drive me crazy down here in Florida plug fishing.Only land about 1 in 4 as they just release the plug when they realize its not food-they are when I land them.Tasty.
