Crevalle Jack

Caranx hippos

  • Unregulated Species

Few fish put up as fun a fight as the Crevalle Jack. This is the most common of the local jack species, found both inshore and offshore in varying rates of salinity. Smaller jacks cruise inshore waters in large schools while the larger ones prefer to hunt in pairs offshore. Shrimp and other small live bait interest this jack the most. When targeting bigger Crevalle, use the most lively bait available as this fish gets bored quickly by anything that appears unnatural. Though their strong-tasting meat is undesirable to most palates, eating smaller-sized crevalle has become somewhat popular.
