Best Lure For Big Flounder
The best option we’ve come across for targeting big flounder is the 5-inch Z-Man Slam Shady Jerk Shad.
This is one of the best flounder magnets we have ever used!
The Z-Man Slam Shady Jerk Shad is 5-inches which is on the larger side of inshore soft plastic lures.
If you want to catch big flounder, then you have to increase the size of your baits.
Flounder are, much like trout, opportunistic predators in that they will hunt what is available to get the most out of their meals.
Jerk shad presentations mimic easy meals and are large in profile.
Additionally, Flounder are quite in tune with their sense of smell.
These lures are pre-scented or you can add some Dr. Juice for additional attraction.
Jerk shads can be worked in any number of different ways.
You can bounce this lure along the bottom to imitate shrimp trying to flee from predators.
Moreover, the material used to create Z-Man lures is very buoyant which makes your lure stand up vertical as it bounces along the bottom.
The wiggle of the lure’s tail will catch the eyes of fish as it drifts in the current.
Furthermore, you can even just straight retrieve this lure to catch fish.
Trout, redfish, and definitely flounder will strike this lure on a straight retrieve.
Flounder will congregate around big structure and moving water.
So, having a bait with little to no drag in the current allows it to sink lower and faster right in the desired portion of the water column.
You want to make sure your lure gets down to the bottom fast where the flounder are.
The Slam Shady color also mimics a large white shrimp hopping across a grass flat or oyster bed.
