Spring means flounder fishing along the Brunswick County coast. The warmer water brings flounder into inshore waters, and anglers pursue them in many different ways.
Many traditional flounder fishermen are content to drift or troll the inlets, dragging live bait on the bottom and letting the boat do the work for them. But for those anglers seeking larger flatfish, anchoring up and casting to structures is a better tactic.
