Flounder Pounders!

Had an awesome trip with Jim and Ricky from Hazlehurst. I was a little concerned when we weren’t getting bit, but then these guys put it in overdrive and started flinging flatties over the gunnels.  It’s here that I have to explain the “flounder pounder”. Back in the day, a fellow named Ray Thomas use to be the king of big flat fish. Besides that, he was an outstanding taxidermist, and made some really neat flounder mounts. Well, according to Ray, if you got 10 in a day, or a 10 pounder, you became a flounder pounder. Old Ray even had some “flounder pounder” t-shirts made that he awarded pounders. Well, Jim and Ricky qualified, and then some. We ended up with 10 nice ones and a few borderline chips that we let grow up, for a total of 15. I think I’m gonna have to get some shirts made up. Thanks guys for a great trip!!
