Tripletail Fishing Tip - When To Set The Hook

Once you stop and drop your bait – shrimp, pogie, mullet, whatever it may be – it gets really nervous and starts swimming. The tripletail will turn over from its side and attack. When it attacks you want to give a good 3, 4 count to let that hook go in enough to set. Tripletail have rally hard mouths, so you want to make sure the hook is set really well. Make sure your drag is adjusted properly and take your time getting the fish to the boat. You want to use a dip net to get it in the boat, then celebrate your delicious catch.
