<font color='#000000'>I recall a posting last year from a gentlemen who&#39;d caught one of the Pembroke coast. &nbsp;From the photograph he&#39;d sent through it looked to be one of the same species I&#39;d previously caught whilst messing around in the Azores.

They&#39;re agressive, but have relatively small mouths and fused teeth. &nbsp;So small baits and small hooks seem to be the order of the day. &nbsp;The down side is that they&#39;re quite capable of shearing through the wire of small freshwater hooks.

I&#39;ve also caught Oceanic Triggerfish off Belize in Central America where they&#39;d happily take Bonefish flies in very shallow water.

An interesting quarry. &nbsp;Good Luck&#33;

<font color='#000000'>i fished oxwich wreck last saterday and between 4 of us we must have had 15 triggers . three of us were using running ledgers &nbsp;and i was using a bream rig &nbsp;with my self taking most of the fish
A small bit of worm tiped with a small strip of squid or small square of makrel worked best
&nbsp;good luck</font>

<font color='#000000'>There are triggers around the Ramsey Sound area of Pembrokeshire. No doubt they are also in other areas as well. I will be trying to catch some over the next few weeks.</font>
