Orlando Tripletail

Triple Your Fun Fishing For Tripletail

Tuesday April 25, 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...
- 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.

Fishing Forecast

April - 2017 Fishing Forecast

April of 2017 should be a great spring for fishing in both inshore and offshore coastal waters of Central Florida. Look to the Mosquito Lagoon and Banana Rivers to produce redfish and sea trout consistently and then look toward the ocean and depending on the water temps, clear skies and wind the cobia will be on their way north and migrating past Canaveral towards their northern grounds on the mid-Atlantic seaboard. Central Florida's weather during the spring is usually no less than spectacular as the college spring breakers are winding up the end of their vacation and heading back to campus to finish up before summer break. Daytona Beach host several spring events from NASCAR Races, Bike Week and Spring Break activities while Cocoa Beach and it's Space Coast offer a much less crowded alternative for vacationers to seek a more secluded and restful Holiday. The temperatures are rising and the fishing should be heating up too in East Central Florida's Cocoa Beach.

Review / Trip Advisor

Inshore Charter Fishing in the Banana River Lagoon near Cocoa Beach, Florida. Catch redfish, sea trout, tarpon, snook and many other saltwater gamefish aboard the world famous Lagooner flats fishing boat with renowned Captain Richard Bradley.

As good as it gets on the water! - Have been fishing 3 different times with Captain Richard and was very pleased with every trip! We caught cobia, kingfish, dolphin,giant redfish,and even hooked on to a nice marlin! took my 7 year old grandson on one of the trips,and Captain Richard was very good with him. He had him put the bait in the live well, as well as take them out. I would recommend Lagooner to anyone that likes cathing FISH!
