    I personally am not a fan of gigging
    It is easy, but it's shooting fish in a barrel'
    Plus: alot of times you can't really see the size of the fish, you just see eyes, and you wind up gigging an undersized fish,
    I'll show you how to do it, and where to do it, but I won't go with you

    It'd be fun for the atmosphere and to say you've tried it, but you stick a lot of 12-13.5" fish that have to be "released."

    yeah, we never stuck 'em unless we were sure they were doormats. and back then, there were a lot more of them around.

    To me, flounder gigging is a lot like crappie fishing at night. It's a pain to set out your lights which draws the bugs which draws the minnows which draws the crappie. No, you don't have to go at night, but it's a total different experience from day fishing. It's kinda like frog gigin. Again, it's the experience. I really didn't gig a single undersized one, but I did gig a few rays. Obviously it's not something I did every night , but like I said...it's the experience.People chum for fish, use deer corn, leave milo in the field for doves. What's sporting and what's not. Obviously, in anything if you abuse anything, it's wrong.
    I say try and put some fish in your freezer and see how you feel about it.
