Kid had a few gnawing on a dead snapper he had been using for fluke

I think they'll eat most anything

Soccer moms

Not airing down

Digging holes and not filling them in

Using your own air pump in front of the air terminals 

 

 

oh... wrong thread

I wouldnt bet on catching 'em  and certainly would be foolish targeting them.

 

Its like targeting a sundial whilst fluking.

 

 

 

10 years ago I’d agree with you, but man I’ve had some sea bass trips turn into triggerfish trips real fast the last few years, and they’re pretty predictable now. And if you’ve had the pleasure of diving in our murky waters, some structure is absolutely loaded with them.

 

I’ve caught them at reefs, bridges, buoys and jetties from Jones to the Hamptons. High low rig, with the “high” hook higher than what you’d use for other bottom fishing. Small, strong hooks are necessary, they have tiny but very strong jaws. Just work around the structure until you get some short but strong nibbles, if they’re around it won’t take them long to find your bait. Sometimes they’ll follow it all the way to your feet or boat. I always use squid, they’re notorious bait stealers.

 

 

Best tasting inshore fish available up here IMO.

C.Robin.. apologies and correction on my part.

 

By boat.. fine

 

I dont think the OP is talking by boat.

 

I do agree that they are delicious, though kinda like fileting a blackfish..need you a pair of needlenose to "peel dat tuff skin bak"

I’ve had luck targeting them on jetties too. 

 

I fillet them this way, significantly easier than trying to fillet them the standard way.

I target and catch them all summer long from the shore. They take up residence at most jettys and rock piles on the south shore. Move around till you find em and tide stage is important they like clean water. Usually get at least a few each trip although this years been tough so far getting through the infestation of blowfish.
