Habitat and Fishing Tips:
Like many other pelagic species, tripletail associate strongly with floating objects. They can be found throughout Florida waters and anglers generally find them suspended under buoys, channel markers and other floating objects. Tripletails spend much of their time in brackish water bays and estuaries. Catching tripletail is an art and requires both skill and patience. Finding the fish and using the right bait and tackle are the keys to success. Successful fishers typically use a live shrimp on very light tackle with little or no lead.
