Re: Triggerfish

Just learned about this - my last two I shot were 14 3/4 inches - finding a 15" is hard in less than 100 feet of water, it seems. Damn, I was really hoping for more time this year to get some. Tomorrow will be my last hope.

Maybe, if you had dropped a HP120 steel or bigger tank on those 2 trigger fish. They may have flatten out to 15".
