Never fished for them before so don't know what to use and don't know where to go? Not asking for any private info just a clue lol.

Really, any of the public wrecks or reefs hold them pretty good? What tackle should I chase them with?

Thanks

natural bottom and small homemade reefs hold good trigger concentrations. Use a chicken rig with two or three small circle hooks and a chunk of squid on each with a bank sinker on the bottom. If you know where and old tire piles are they used to hold box car loads of trigger.

Thank you my good sir!! I don't know where they are but I'm sure I can do a little research and find it. If not, there are plenty of artificial reefs out there. Thanks for te help!! I'll be home in about two weeks and hopefully get to do a little fishing.

I've always had better luck fishing small stuff like Lobsterman mentioned for triggers. Pyramids seem to hold triggers well. Be prepared to weed through lots of 12.5" fish, as most of the ones I catch seem to be that size.

They must grow slow because they seemed to be the same size last year!

Not to hijack the thread but caught one on a 2 oz jig yesterday. Never had another hit. Maybe I should have dropped a pompano jig down???

I use Demon hooks, 2/0 2X strong. Besides the targeted trigger, we have landed keeper cobia, a 36" long red snapper (around 26#), and keeper size grouper. Almost never straighten one out.
