Flounder from the beach on Manasota key. Yes the tasty flat fish are in fish-able numbers right from the shore on Several of the area beaches, Manasota being the best bet right now. Shrimp or a bait fish caught on site are your best bet,
Buck-tail jigs bounced along the bottom or Banana “Crazy/silly” Jig are also working well, keep in mind the flounder lay on the bottom and if you bounce the jig off and them let it slam into the bottom it will kick up a little sand and let the flounder know it is there. Flounder will most often hit while you are lifting your rod tip, which makes the jig come up off the bottom like it was chased off the bottom by another predator.
So take the family to the beach, enjoy some rays and good fishing
