Equipment Used:

Note: This equipment makes up our Ultimate Inshore Combo bundle where you can get it all with some great savings.

The Power Prawn USA Junior rigged on a Hoss Helix Hook is the go-to presentation for targeting tripletail.

All you need to do is find a channel marker or a buoy near a moving current.

Toss this lure on either side and if there is a tripletail on that channel marker, it will eat it.

This has quickly become my most trusted method for catching quality tripletail.

Tripletail absolutely love the Power Prawn USA Junior lures, they simply can’t get enough!

All of the gear mentioned above is available in our online tackle shop!

Do you let the lure sink to the bottom, or is the bite more mid water column or near the surface. In the video I do not see you leaving the bail open for the lure to drop down vertical near the channel marker piling.

Tripletail can be holding towards the top, middle, or bottom of pilings, so it’s smart to do multiple passes at different depths. They are holding mid-column this day, so I was letting the lure get down about 5 ft.

I’ll keep working them but have yet to catch anything on the USA power prawn jr or regular but last year on the Brazilian jr I did catch 1 nice trout but as far as tripletail I only caught 1 by a crab trap bouey a couple years ago on the jelly colored chasebaits flick prawn and while he or she was no giant only about 25 inches and about 5 lbs it did fight hard and was great eating as expected thanks for the info and all you do👍😉

How cool that you have been catching so many tripletail on the slam shady too!

22 incher on a Slam Shady, this was in a Naval base restricted area but this fish had two broken small hooks in it’s jaw, a testament to release or breaking off.

Nice work on the 22 incher! They sure do fight hard when they get that big.

For the Power Prawn USA Jr (which is what I was using in this video), I go with the 2/0 Hoss Football jighead with 1/4 oz of weight. Here’s a link:

There is no doubt about that Luke, I caught plenty of them with the Power Prawn junior in the last 2 months…
