Go Tripletail for Tasty Fare, Sporting Challenge

 

Go Tripletail for Tasty Fare, Sporting Challenge

By Craig Lamb

Catching the tastiest inshore fish of them all, while fishing for a species that is a master of disguise. You get that challenge and reap the benefits at the table when fishing for tripletail.

The tripletail gets its name from the dimensions and placement of the dorsal and anal fins, which resemble additional tails. The tripletail has a triangular head with the eyes on top and close together, and by design, they attack their prey from below. 

And if you like white, flakey fish, you’ll love the tripletail. The meat is delicate, rich, flakey and nothing short of exquisite. It melts in your mouth. When you can find it, tripletail at seafood counters goes up to $20 per pound. That makes catching a tripletail worth the time and effort.

You are most likely to find tripletail along the Gulf Coast, from Texas to Florida. They favor warm climates and open water.

The sporting aspect of the tripletail is what makes fishing for this master of disguise fun for anglers of all skill levels. Tripletail can change colors to blend in with whatever floating objects they choose to hang around. When free floating in open water, they often lie on their side, or just below the surface. It’s easy to mistaken a tasty, sporting tripletail for a clump of weeds or drifting debris, and that is how this predator likes it. Other fish, and humans, can’t tell the difference between fish and trash.

Floating shrimp and crab are favorite foods, although as opportunistic feeders the tripletail will make a meal of small baitfish.

Inshore pelagic species gravitate to floating debris, and the tripletail is no exception. Buoys are at the top of the list and especially during crab season when buoys tied to pots make the ideal haunt.

Keep a fake shrimp tied to a spinning rig when fishing for anything but tripletail. If you come up on the tripletail, you will be ready to grab the rig and make a cast.

Premium sunglasses are essential to seeing the elusive tripletail. So is a boat with the features needed to stay out all day long. You get that and more from Tidewater Boats and the all-new 2500 Custom Carolina Bay.

This new Carolina Bay model is a large, stepped bottom, feature full, high-end, family-friendly performance bay boat. 2500 Custom Carolina Bay has a centerline of 25′ 2″ and a 9-foot beam. The boat has a fuel capacity of 74 gallons and rates for a maximum of 350 horsepower. 

Tidewater Boats are designed with distinctive Carolina Flair, setting up the dry ride, to direct waves away from the hull using reverse chines. Tidewater likes to appropriately call that feature the Dry Chine Ride.

Carolina Flair and the Dry Chine Ride are enhanced by another feature adding to the smooth, dry ride. The Corrugated Grid Stringer Vertebra absorbs the shock of waves against the hull in choppy water. Filled with foam to reduce noise and vibration, the stringer system works like a human skeleton to create a rigid, unified construction that tightly secures all of the internal parts. Those include fuel tanks, consoles, seating and storage compartments that are fastened to the stringer system. To ensure a solid, tight fit, every stringer system is customized for each Tidewater model.

Another defining Tidewater feature is the Spray Relief Point. That is the point of impact on the hull deflecting water away from the boat. Multiple SRP areas enhance the characteristic dry ride of the Tidewater.

Composite construction, foam filled hulls, cored decks, and gunwales plus much more quality design, materials and construction are extras that come with the price of a Tidewater.

By taking extra steps not found in most brands, Tidewater has the confidence in providing owners a 10-year, transferrable warranty that covers the hull.

Tidewater stays close to it’s saltwater roots with the manufacturing facility located in Lexington, S.C. Find out more about the complete lineup of models, at tidewaterboats.com. Visit the growing community of Tidewater owners on Facebook at Tidewater Boats LLC.
