    Go get some Tripletail

    Went out of the port again and caught some nice Tripletail. Some on buoys, some on seaweed, and some free swimming/sitting. Got them from 30ft all the way to 50ft It's cool, because I kill the motor as I get close and they hide under my boat. It's like they think it is floating garbage. :P
    This was the biggest one at 21lbs.

    How big (small?) is that boat? Never woulda thought you could take something that small out of the port.

    I didnt know Contender made a 12 footer. But damnit it says right there on the side of your boat. I am calling them and will get them to update their website to add your model Nice catch and good eats!

    NOt trying to hijack your thread, but im seeing all you guys bringing trips in and its killing me! I've tried around buoys, weed lines, etc. Using live shrimp on weighted hooks, DOA's around floating weeds (always turns out to be triggerfish). What's the trick? I'm not trying to pull anyone's secret spots, basically just looking for an effective approach at getting these.

    Awesome. You don't have problems with it out there? Assuming you launch out of Port Canaveral, although this pic looks like Sebastion.

    Get your self a good pair of glasses (RCI Optics cough cough) and look for anything that isn't water. I dropped my speed to barley moving, because they are easy to overlook. I'm so low to the waterI can't see them until I am on top of them.

    I did launch at Port. That picture was just to showoff the boat.
