Triggerfish are HOT for Destin Fishing Charter Boat ‘No Alibi’

It's Triggerfish Time for 'No Alibi' Destin, FL Charter Fishing Trips!

While many of us are waiting around with eager anticipation of an abridged Red Snapper season, SOME of us love fishing too much to be patient - so it's time for TRIGGERFISH - GET 'EM WHILE THEY'RE HOT! Captain Schofield knows how to get you in the right spots for some serious fishing fun.

The crew likes to make sure that when your trip is over with one of our Destin Fishing Charter,s your body reminds you that you've been fishing - sore forearms, sore hands from cranking a reel with pounds of fish the line.

Triggerfish are a BLAST to catch, and the stocks are bountiful (As you can see by the images below) enough to where you will catch far more than you keep.

Triggerfish TASTE is fantastic, which is interesting because many old-timers will tell you that Trigger was traditionally a trash fish, but no more - this is GOURMET food!

Also, we've got a mouth-watering, succulent Spicy Sauteed Triggerfish Recipe down below that you can plan to use right after your No Alibi Fishing Charter Trip in Destin, FL.

Call today and book a deep-sea fishing charter out in the amazing Gulf of Mexico!!!

FWC Notes on Habitat and Fishing Tips:

Triggerfish inhabit rugged bottom ledges and artificial reefs in water depths that exceed 80 feet. Because they prefer the same type of habitat, they are almost always associated with Red Snapper.

Triggerfish eat benthic invertebrates, including crabs, sea urchins, shrimp, sand dollars, and mollusks. Recreational anglers commonly catch triggers on squid or cut bait, but also by spearfishing.

Triggerfish are notorious bait stealers and often frustrate anglers targeting giant snapper and grouper. Because triggerfish have a hard, bony mouth, using a small, very sharp hook is essential.

Light to medium bottom fishing equipment with a 20 to 50-pound test line is sufficient for triggerfish, which average 2 to 4 pounds.

State Record*:
12 lb 7 oz, caught near Pensacola July 15, 2001

*NOTE:  Yes, if you're on board, we will actively work to get your name on the books :)
