Jacks

Fishing for Jacks

The jack crevalle is a powerful, predatory fish with extensive studies showing the species consumes a variety of small fish, with invertebrates such as prawns, shrimps, crabs, mollusks and cephalopods also of minor importance. Dietary shifts with both age, location and season have been demonstrated, which led some researchers to postulate the species is indiscriminate in its feeding habits. Anglers can find them on flats, in channels and on reefs. The crevalle jack reaches maturity at 55 cm in males and 66 cm in females, with spawning taking place year round, although peaks in activity have been documented in several sites. The crevalle jack is also a revered gamefish, taken both by flies, lures and bait. The crevalle jack is closely related to both the Pacific crevalle jack and the longfin crevalle jack, the latter of which has been extensively confused with the true crevalle jack until recently.
