 Distribution & Size

Crevalle Jack (Caranx hippos) Common in both inshore waters and the open sea.  Usual size is from 3 to 5lbs. Plentiful up to 12lbs in most areas. Found offshore from March to September.  These fish can tolerate a wide range of salinities. Typically, schools will corner a school of baitfish at the surface and feed with commotion that can be seen at great distances. Crevalle jack feed mainly on small fish. Peak spawning occurs offshore from March through September.

 General Information

Few fish can out pull a Crevalle Jack. The fight is gives is not spectacular but is rugged by any standard.

 Tackle & Bait

Caught on most tackles but usually they like something fast moving.  To ensure hookups you need to use lively and fresh bait.  Artificial's need to be worked with great speed. We catch them from the dock when the tide is running using free lined live shrimps. Results are spectacular.....the largest to date is 12lbs. However these fish are wily and will head straight for the pilings so your efforts can be in vain.

 Eating Qualities

Poor by most standards.  Meat is dark red and strong to taste.

Florida record is a massive 51lbs. captured near Jupiter.
