Jack Crevalle Fishing in and near Florida

Jack Crevalle Fishing In Florida

The Jack Crevalle, also known as Caranx Hippos and as the common jack.  The Florida record is 57 lbs. caught near Jupiter, FL.  In the 1800s, separate the crevalle jack from the mackerels with “jack crevalle” based on the word "cavalla", an earlier word used for the jacks. Their top jaw is equal in length to the bottom jaw structured to chase and feed on baitfish running in front of them.

These fish live in both inshore and offshore habitats, with larger adults preferring deeper waters than the juveniles. In the inshore they like to be in shallow flats and sandy bottoms.  We will catch them with small baitfish and can put up a fight for a small fish. They like to feed in the mornings, trapping baitfish. Like the rest of the Jack family they don’t have sharp teeth so we do not need wire leaders.  We will use a “Jerk, Jerk, Pause” method to catch them.  Once they are hooked we pull them up fast because they like to move quickly.

The smaller fish taste best; larger ones can be dark and tasteless.  We usually catch and release the Jack Crevalle. I don't eat Jacks or advise eating them but they sure are fun to catch.

No specific regulations for fishing.
