Tripletail on bouys

5044 20
Went out last weekend and put in some work running bouys, had flies and live shrimp, but it was extremely difficult to get a bite, saw a good number of em especially more big ones than I've ever seen. Took from about 8am-3pm to get my two an 18 and a 24/25. Ran from Ft. Desoto to clearwater twice. I was throwing live shrimp on 1/0 and 20lb flouro and got refused all day except for these two.

There are some pretty ingenious tripletail FADs in Mississippi. Most use pipe insulation foam and burlap bags but the more stealthy ones are made with sticks or bamboo that look like flotsam. The anchor lines are black and get covered in slime, the burlap floats seductively in the tide and the whole contraption attracts small baitfish and tripletail. Of course, none of them are legal and the first errant tow of an inshore shrimper and they're gone.
