Triple Your Fun Fishing For Tripletail
Monday August 21, 2017
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...

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.
Port Canaveral holds some of the biggest tripletail in the world. Look at a recent catch [here].
15" minimum size limit, 2 per angler per day.
