Triple Your Fun Fishing For Tripletail

Monday January 22, 2018

One of the most sought out and best tasting seafood fish in Orlando, Florida is the Tripletail. Charter Captains all over the world that are "In-The-Know" often don't tell their clients how tasty these strange looking gamefish are.

An Obscure Gamefish, The Tripletail is a Local Favorite Among Floridians in the Know...
- Captain Richard Bradley

You'll find locals lurking around the bouyline and float some fishing for tripletail off Port Canaveral only 30 minutes out of Orlando. It takes special knowledge and a bit of timing to be consistent when pursuing this species and they're not as abundant as in yesteryear, but if the timing is good and the angler is willing a good day can still be found off the coastal waters.

Tripletail can be caught in warm waters of the Atlantic on floating weeds and debre. When the debre meets the shoreline the tripletail often hang around structure like buoys, wrecks and other shallow water areas and don't typically venture back offshore. Big Tripletail can be caught off Port Canaveral and several world records have been caught off Canaveral's coastline near Kennedy Space Center. Catching tripletail over twenty pounds is commonplace in these Florida waters, but the opportunities are becoming less frequent with both commercial and recreational pressure looking for these tasty critters.

Little detail is provided about this species except that they appear to have three tails which are actually large anal and dorsal fins that drop back far and elongated along the body. Tripletail change color with their environment and are great imitators, often imitating floatsome and leaves. Color can vary from black, grey, brown and yellow depending on habitat.

Tripletail are found in mild and warm waters around floatsome. They are often around bouys or sargassum seaweed floating on the surface.

Remarks

Port Canaveral holds some of the biggest tripletail in the world. Look at a recent catch [here].

Regulations

15" minimum size limit, 2 per angler per day.

State Record

42.5 lbs.

Fishing Reports

January - 2018 Fishing Report

The Banana River comes alive during the colder months of year and January is the peak season for deep hole trout, redfish and juvenile black drum. We've been fishing the deeper canals and slews with success during the cold fronts when the water is cold and also catching some great sized fish on the flats adjacent to these holes. Look for the Banana River to improve as the winter gets colder and the fish transition to their winter haunts in pursuit of cold, stable water. Look for mature fish to seek warmth on the shallow shorelines nearby.

Fishing Forecast

January - 2018 Fishing Forecast

Is it going to be an Indian Summer this January or possibly a deep freeze Polar Vortex? These are the questions that all fishing guides want to know. Depending on how this winter plays out with temperatures, winds and other conditions will dictate how our fishing will pan out in January. Unless the water is churned up by high winds, January will produce some of the cleanest and clearest water of the year in Central Florida as colder water kills of plankton life in the lagoons and mild northeast winds often push in clearer water in the ocean. Look for great inshore fishing in the Mosquito Lagoon and Northern end of the Indian River toward Titusville. If the winds and water are all frothed up it can be a crap shoot for fishing in almost every inshore locations and will shutdown all offshore fishing due to small craft warnings and safety warnings. However, between fronts, look for some of the best fishing of the year in January both inshore and offshore in Central Florida.
