Tripletail are a great-eating fish that is typically found around some type of floating object in open water. Many anglers will fish below buoys or some type of floating trash. Tripletail can be found very close to the objects and they can be caught somewhat easily if you can approach them slowly without scaring them off. They feed on smaller fish, shrimp and crabs. Anglers usually sight fish for them with slow-sinking jigs or some type of float (bobber) to help keep the bait suspended in the water column.
