In an effort to successfully manage flounder in Texas waters, we plan to study the nighttime flounder fishery in Matagorda, Aransas and San Antonio Bays during this harvest season.
A variety of methods will be used to capture information from flounder giggers and anglers, including nighttime creel surveys, nighttime trailer counts, and the opportunity for flounder enthusiasts to self-report their landings in Texas bay systems through the free My Texas Hunt Harvest app (MTHH).
To report your nighttime flounder catch using MTHH, go to “Fishing” and click “Flounder.” You won’t have to divulge your secret fishing spot, just information similar to our creel interview questions, such as the the number of flounder caught, the Texas bay system you fished and the date. Easy!
Your participation is important – help improve coastal fishing by reporting your nighttime flounder fishing harvest.
