One of the most prized fish that inhabits the Gulf Coast could be lingering around a channel marker or crab trap float near you.

When the water warms up along the coast, the species of fish known as tripletail or blackfish migrate into the inshore waters and look for hiding places with just a little shade.

Channel markers, buoys, crab trap floats, or any other flotsam can provide a haven for the fish that can range in size from a few pounds to the monster of a fish that stands as the state record

Florida: 40 pound 13 ounce (not sure on location)

Alabama:  37-pound, 5-ounce fish caught in 1976 near Bayou La Batre.
