Flounder fishing in Texas waters opens Dec. 15 after a six-week closure.

The closure is in response to declining flounder numbers and officials designed it to allow flounder to migrate into the Gulf from bay systems during the spawn.

Not all flounder leave the bays and they don’t all leave at once.
