Giant Tripletail Caught In Georgia, Setting New State Woman’s Record
Bob McNally 06.19.17
In the saltwater fishing world, the strange but fun to catch tripletail is a coveted catch, and a new Georgia state record for the species has just been set in the woman’s division with a massive 29-pound, 6-ounce giant.
Caught by Jordan Davis of Brunswick on June 3, 2017, the fish was caught in St. Andrews Sound aboard the Sea Quest with Capt. John Davis at the helm.
Davis’ tripletail surpassed the 22-pound, 7-ounce fish for the Georgia woman’s record, held since 1994 by Joan Thigpen.
Tripletail offer light-tackle anglers exciting sight fishing in clear, reasonably shallow water just offshore Georgia beaches. They fight hard, and are delicious table fare.
