Triggerfish Season Opens Strong in Destin for 2019

Posted April 30, 2019

One of the tastiest pelagic species in the Gulf of Mexico is the Gray Triggerfish and they are a lot of fun to catch too! Triggerfish are a fun fight year round but with season limitations you will need to release for some of the year. March 1st Triggerfish season opened in Destin with warm temperatures making for some great fishing over the weekend.

Our first Triggerfish trip for 2019 was a shared charter aboard Good Times – shared trips we group together fishing enthusiasts with other anglers; great for those that want to fish on a private charter without the investment. The group went out on a beautiful sunny day for a six hour charter fishing the Gulf. Triggerfish was definitely the target for this trip and did not disappoint. We also brought back a healthy bounty of Vermillion Snapper and several Red Snapper were thrown back til their season opens. Triggerfish is a favorite among locals and your catch is cleaned for you to cook dinner or take it directly to one of Destin’s restaurants that offer to cook your catch!

Give Pelican Adventures a call to schedule your shared or private deep sea fishing trip- we also book fishing aboard Vera Marie our 70 foot party boat. Everything is included with all of our fishing trips: fishing license, rod and reel, bait and tackle and fish cleaning….Let’s go fishing!
