Default Triggers??

What do you guys like to use for catching triggerfish? I have had some success with squid and a smaller sized hook on small rigs. Any other pointers???

Thanks

Double hook rig, and squid! That's what works for us! You can use more hooks also, I just choose to use two.

Squid or cut cigars. They aren't real picky.

Some type of cut bait.
Generally use 4 smaller hooks about 1' apart and a few cranks off the bottom.
Catch 'em up.

trigger fish is good eating, but theres not really a minimum depth however I have only caught them in the gulf. starting at 40ft deep. With all respect have you caught one before or know what they look like? I didnt at first and you dont want to throw a yummy fish back

Side note: not trying to hijack here, but I read in the paper that the quota for trigger was cut in half, did that change any recreational fishing regulations for us?
