Blue Runner

Caranx crysos

  • Unregulated Species

Sometimes referred to as the “Blue Stripe Jack,” the Blue Runner is very similar to the Crevalle Jack. While they can reach up to 20 inches and weigh in at 4 pounds, you will most commonly see this fish weigh in at around one pound. They feed on very small fish, shrimp, or squid and usually lurk around floating objects or structures. Mature species may be found inshore, whereas juveniles stay offshore after spawning until reaching adulthood. Found to be a less than desirable table fish, you can use the Blue Runner as bait to catch larger fish, including a monster-sized Snook or Tarpon while fishing inshore.
