Tampa Tripletail

Recommended Posts

I have been on the tripletail for the last couple weeks and today @FunFlatsFishing and I set out to get a few. If you haven’t caught any this year it’s a great change of pace to chase these things around. Credit to Alex today because without his keen eyesight we wouldn’t have had any in the cooler at the end of the day!

Set out at around 10 am and ran out to some coordinates where there was a 17 mile long line of crab bouys only to find that within the last week they must have been moved/removed by the commercial guys. Strike 1. Then the wind was starting to pick up out there. Strike 2. Luckily we didn’t strike out because as we were idling around @FunFlatsFishing Saw a nice triple tail under some floating grass and pitched to him and he landed in the cooler. Switched up our strategy and ended up just running around looking for debris and finding fish. 

Pretty quickly we put 3 nice tripletail in the boat and almost had a 4th big one too. 

Stopped by a snook spot in the way in and I was broken off by a big one I couldn’t stop.

Finished the day by pulling my stone crab traps and getting some claws. Overall a solid day. 

Here are the tripletail:

"Overall a solid day"

Sir......you now qualify for the understatement of the week award!! Then when you finish by "pulling my stone crab traps and getting some claws" you officially have went over the edge!!

Nice work!!!! :)
