    W/ the wind knocking the power out & the sewer treatment plant dumping 1,000 of gallons of raw into PS by West Seattle the other day....

    That little turd might just match the hatch.

    I'm disappointed that no one ID'd the flounder imitation as a Starry Flounder. However, both eyes need to be on the same side (left or right--not just top side) of the fish. Flat fish are that way. Still, a very convincing imitation.

    Sweet!

    Kelvin,

    The first one looks like a tongue fish. Good job! Those flatfish don't have much in the way of overt fins. It's just body and tail. I believe tongue fish are found in our local waters. I know I've seen them in San Francisco Bay.

    had 3 of John Morins' Flounder Arounds with me in a south carolina estuary back in when i lived outside of charleston.. eyes were in the center, and the real fish didnt seem to mind at all. they inhaled the little buggers every chance they got.

    kelvin, that's a pretty good first effort [sorry, mean, was i see this is a bit old] you still make them up?

    Not bad, Kelvin. Just cut the tail shorter. Also, as flounders can change color and pattern to match their environment, you might work with a more black/gray/speckled pattern to match the colors of our local sediments. What did you used for the body?

    I just printed out the directions, Kelvin. That's pretty cool . I wonder if it will work at my place?

    Steve I bet it would I have seeen some little founder darting around out there
    and in a couple of places by Lacey there the bottom is thick with them and sculpin

    Steve I used sheet foam for the body
    then coated it with epoxy and laid a duck flank feather on it
    you are suppose to paint the underside white but I did not bother as I dion not believe Searuns burry themselves in the mud waiting to strike bait fish from below
    they will however suck things out of the mud


    this thread is over a year old
    funny it has come back around
    I think I will have to take that thing out and give it a try
