    I have a neighbor that is catching some flounder, something I have never caught nor fished for. He says good eating and another friend said he didn't like them! SO, I need a tie breaker to determine if I want to venture out into the freezing conditions of late.

    What say you, good eating or not? Thanks, FF

    As much as I like white fish I might like whats in the sound,, Its a taste thing you really cant take a guy or two's opinion,, Try it.. I have heard Starry Flounder is great for fish tacos.

    Flounder is really good IF you bleed and ice the fish imm. upon catching it. I tend to avoid bottom fish from the sound, though. Just too many contaminants for someone who eats as much fish as we do. Prob. O.K. for the occasional meal. Very nice pan fried with light bread crumbs and not much oil or butter in pan. Bob

    I wish PS bottomfish were less wormy. Good crab bait though.

    Previous two posts spot on. Probably full of PCB's and they tend to be wormy as well. Easy to catch and mild flavor, but I would stay away. Make good crab/ling bait though...

    I would suggest you chew REALLY good. There could be smaller worms or eggs you cannot see. But if you want to lose some weight (the hard way), best food out there...

    Never eaten it. But I’d save the fuel and tie up rigs for blackmouth instead…
