When we heard that Charlie Nappi broke the world record for summer flounder with a 22lber and change we all said fluke!!

Did you get the new TFO yet?
The actual distinction is "left side up" all flat swimmers start out swimming upright. Some migrate to the left some to the right. You'll notice that what we call a winter flounder up here, besides being smaller and not very aggressive it faces right when held upright. Our fluke face left, weird stuff.
