@capt.sharky 's not heading back to school, but he's definitely headed back out on the water to catch more tripletails like this one! Keep reading for some tips about targeting this species from Sharky.
Tripletails are commonly known for their strange behavior of floating just beneath the surface with one side exposed. During this action, their shape mimics a floating leaf or debris. After a while, little bait fish will accumulate under the tripletail seeking protection. Little do they know, they are in the STRIKE ZONE! This is a very unusual looking but successful feeding strategy. These fish have been known to form schools and can be found in bays, sounds, and estuaries during the warmer summer. There's no better feeling then driving in from an offshore trip to find one of these beautiful fish tucked up under some floating debris/structure. With a popping cork rig, live shrimp, and a good cast... You are sure to be HOOKED UP!
