Re: testing the flounder plug
Damn that looks cool and very realistic. (Although I've only seen a couple of videos of flounders moving). I read a book by Frank Daignault called Striper surf. In it I remember reading about how the contents of one striper he caught contained tons of flounder which he described as looking like tons of "flapjacks" because there were so many stacked together.
I used to test lures out in my swimming pool to before I went fishing, especially with new plugs. that way I knew how to swim each one properly, and how the lure looked at different depths of the water from different angles and stuff. Be sure to rinse it off with freshwater though.....I have a funny feeling that fish can smell the chlorine.
Think like a fish....
