The gulf floun­der is a pop­u­lar tar­get for recre­ational and com­mer­cial fish­er­men from the Caroli­nas south into and through­out the Gulf of Mex­ico. As Fish Facts ex­pert Bob Shipp notes in his GUIDE TO THE FISHES OF THE GULF OF MEX­ICO, like most flat­fishes, the gulf floun­der is a vo­ra­cious am­bush preda­tor, ly­ing in wait while hid­den on the bot­tom. The IGFA all-tackle world record — from Bogue Sound, North Carolina, in 2011 — weighed 7 pounds, 2 ounces.
