Triggers are funny. Heard of them being under stuff floating, high in the water column, and drifting. I have caught all of mine on wrecks, or the walls. They have sorta small mouths so 1/0 is about perfect, but have caught alot on 3/0. Sand fleas seem to work best, but have caught them on clam, and green crab. BUT the meat is poisonous!!! So if you catch them e-mail me and I'll tell you where to send them. Seriously they are one of the best fish you'll ever taste. Good luck!
