I have caught more than 100 in just an hour or so but that was at a place
where they naturally congregated. The supposed reason they are called hog
chokers was that they were seined up by the thousands and fed to hogs "in the good
old days" Most of the time I come across one every few collecting trips. I live
where they are very common at some parts of the year as the young come up
stream from brackish water to grow in freshwater until it's time for them to go
back to sea to spawn. I think the bigger adults (6"+) stay in the ocean for the
rest of their lives and are called tire tread flounder but I'm not positive
about that.
