Welcome to the forum Jason.  I have never even seen a trotline over here on the VA Shore.  Crabguy is in your area and does trotline, I think. Maybe he will have some insight for ya. Keep us posted on your luck...  Cool

I've never caught a flounder but I've seen a few in my diving expeditions.

Crabguy has made contact with me and I think he's going to try and help me get off to a good start. Thanks for any advise from all and I will keep you posted.

Right now I just need to get some of the gear together for the trotline. I've been doing a lot of reading on the net and think I know what I need. All I know is, a day on the water is a good day (even if I don't catch any crabs, but lets thing possitive!)
