We caught a couple Spanish and a couple blues to use for bait this morning, but the schools of pogies we found yesterday weren't around this morning so we headed out with what we had. Went out to the Hutton area, as everything else was being hit pretty hard on our way out. Ended up with a mess of porgies and ringtails. Threw back a bunch of those slightly undersized sea bass and tussled with some AJ's. Had a fun day and ended up catching a little fish that was a new one to me. Anyone seen one of these little fish before? IMG_2942.jpg

Looks like a juvenile Triple Tail.
I think maybe Trigger is right...After looking again.

Thanks. I didn't think of that since I caught it on the bottom and thought of tripletails as normally suspended under floating material. I've never caught one though, so that is not experience talking, just something I either read somewhere or have been told.

Yeah I think your right. I've seen Blair wiggins fish under sargassum for them. People also fish channel markers and buoys for them.

Triple Tails get big...they lay on their side like a flounder....sometimes....They love to hang out near crabpots.
