Nice haul Choup! I just recently learned that Flounder and Halibut are born with eyes on both sides of their heads. One eye migrates to to the same side as they mature in some weird metamorphesis. Pretty cool!!

Remove the head. Then carefully remove the roe on these sows. The flounder roe is a high end delicacy among trained chefs.

Slice the top (brown side) from head to tail along the backbone and "tenderloin" the two top filets. Then remove the skin. Repeat on the underside (white side).

Now you have 4 filets. Place the two bottom filets back together in a baking dish, fill with a heaping pile of your favorite blue crab and gulf shrimp dressing, and form the two top filets back onto the pile. The result should look like a really fat flounder sans the head and tail. Season to taste and bake until the top filets are done.

Hey Marty! Long time no talk. Got these guys in the general area where we fished when you were down. That metamorphosis happens when these guys are less than an inch long.

The large ones, like the ones in the pic, are vicious and fight like ****. Got them all on a yellow gulp twister tail (as much as I hate to admit)

When are you coming down again?

Mark - my brother-in-law no longer has his Grand Isle job as Pastor. They eliminated the church because so few people attended. Chris is back north of there about two hours at his and his wife's home now. They got hit hard by the floods and lost nearly everything. They spent about $10K to have a 3' wall built around their home because of the flooding. Well, this flood was a 1000 year flood and the water rose to 5 foot - or 2 feet above their wall. Sure was fun fishing that day - well except the smell of Pelican Island!!!! I thought I had a pretty strong stomach - playing with fish for a living and gutting deer and such. But, that stank almost had the old gag reflex going - lol! Pretty glad we weren't catching anything there and was VERY happy when you suggested moving - lol! You sure have a beautiful place and thank you so much for entertaining us! Someday, maybe me and the Mrs. will travel down there again and give you a holler!

I can imagine those BIG, flat flounder probably fight like a bluegill does where they kind've dig down sideways and fight like they're three times their size!!
