The tripletail fishing this past week has been phenomenal !! I have fished in SW Florida for a long time and this is the best season, by far. The Trips have been holding on the deeper (30ft plus) trap balls. Today, we caught 18 and saw well over 30 fish, with some trap balls holding multiple fish. If they weren't bigger ones, we did not even turn around on them. Some have been pushing the 10 lb mark over the past 7 days or so.
Live shrimp have been the ticket, although we have caught many on DOAs.
