Default TripleTail AKA Blackfish

Does anyone fish for these here? I used to fish for them around structure and channel markers around Dauphin Island all the time, but I never see any postings on this board about fishing for them here. Are they not popular, not common, or the best kept secret in local fishing.

There are alot of them if you know where to look. Not many people give out the areas. I fish for them in a small 2 mile area in the summer. This past year was the best year I have had in a long time.

I had some posts on here about my tripletail fishing but all my photos got deleted when the forum ownership changed hands so now you only see the text and the YouTube links.

tarpon01,
I'd love to fish with you sometime. I'll call you when the weather warms up.

I've never targeted them but have caught a bunch off debri in the gulf. I know people that do though, In the summer time just find bouys or something floating and throw a shrimp a few feet away and you should be able to get a hold of something. They are one of the best eating fish there is, similar to flounder. I've also caught them with pinfish.

I accidentally caught one in the mouth of the Pearl River at lake Borgne when I was a kid growing up. I've always wanted to catch one again, heck of a fun fight. I would love to know where to target them in our bay area.

If you go to Apalachicola during the summer, you can catch all the tripletail you want. They hang around the bouys and crab traps. Just toss a live shrimp and hang on.
