Tips For Catching Triple Tail:

Triple tail are most often caught on floating debris, along trap lines, or under big floating buoys. If you are targeting triple tail for table fare inshore you can always run along a trap line.  If you are offshore, your best bet is running and gunning and looking for debris. 

When you do spot your triple tail, we recommend you use light tackle and fluorocarbon. Try throwing a live shrimp or small live baitfish at it.  Don't be fooled by the triple tails' slow, floating demeanor, they can put up a good fight!
