fish seem to becoming more wide spread and more numerous each
year, they start to show late summer and stay until mid autumn. We
first caught them by accident but now they can be targeted. They live
close in to the shore, mostly out of the tide, on rough ground and are
great fun on light tackle where they fight hard for their size, but you
do need to use small hooks. So far I've never had a trigger taken
home and I would prefer to keep it that way, they are
far too smart to kill.
Trigger fish rigs are more or less the same a
Black Bream,a paternoster rig or 1 up 1 down (Wessex Ledger) but
heavier line as Triggers can bite through the trace so 25lbBS
hook length is a must they also have quite small mouths so hooks
8 to 4 are best large strips of Squid seem to be the best bait
but they will take worm and Prawn.
