    Awesome Tripletail

    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.

    I have not seen any trips down here for some time. Lord knows we have enough crab traps. Are you cruising the traps at a good speed then going back to one when you see one, or are you sending baits down on some traps even if you don't see one?

    I've been fishing with Kevin when we were cruising about 40MPH. He yells "stop the boat, I saw a triple tail". Of course I thought he was FOS because we were going so fast. Nonetheless, I circled back around hard like I was on an episode of Miami Vice. Sure enough, he lobbed a shrimp to the buoy handed me the rod, and said "reel in your fish". I still didn't even see the fish at this point... but it was hooked and we brought him into the boat. Legendary.

    Yep, don't have to slow down unless you see one. if you see one, and he wont eat, or goes down, he will come back.

    Nice work right there! Are you putting the shrimp under a cork or do you just free line them?
