The typical way to catch flounder is by drifting a three‑way rig and strip bait across open bottom. To make a classic flounder rig, start by tying a 2-foot piece of 50-pound monofilament leader and 4- to 8-ounce bank sinker to one eye of a three-way swivel. On the second eye, add a 6-foot trailer of 50-pound mono. Slide a bucktail skirt, beads and spinners over the longer leader, and tie on a 5/0 Kahle hook. Bait the hook with a strip of squid, and tip it with a live gudgeon minnow (killifish). This rig works great over open bottom and can be effective when drifting around the wrecks, but the two leaders, sinker and trailer hook can easily get snagged in gnarly structure where flounder live.
