Information About Amberjack
Amber Jacks have a dark stripe that extends from nose to in front of dorsal fin that becomes more promenant when fish is in feeding mode; no scutes; soft dorsal base less than twice the length of the anal fin base. Most AmberJack are large heavy fish that are amber in color.
This is an OFFSHORE species associated with rocky reefs, debris, and wrecks, typically in 60 - 240 feet of water that are not often caught nearshore in East Central Florida. We find amberjack off the Cocoa Beach and East Central Florida on wrecks and deep rock ledges and hard bottom debre.
Prepare for Battle. This species comes with many disclosures like if your pregnant, heart problems or just plain whimpy you might not want to tangle with these guys.
Amberjack redefine "tough fish" and being the largest member of the jack family you might want to reconsider talking boldly about any other fish fights until you tangle with this species.
Must be at least 28" fork of the tail in the Atlantic; 30" fork of the tail in the Gulf. One per harvester per day

November - 2017 Fishing Report
November in Central Florida can be an up or down proposition for fishing offshore as the nor-easterner's start to blow and seas pick up. However, it can be rewarding for anglers looking to cash in on the end of the fall mullet run for almost every type of nearshore species from jacks and snook to redfish and tarpon. If the temperatures and wind stay cooperative, look for nearshore to be productive, but if the seas get angry look inshore towards the lagoons for redfish, sea trout and possibly some snook action at Sebastian Inlet and the Indian River Lagoon. November is a Central Florida transition month so don't be surprised to see fish getting active and feeding heavily before the winter cool down when bait becomes less abundant and fish look to warm up on the shallow water flats later in the morning.

Great Day of Fishing - My husband and grandson went out fishing with Captain Richard after his wife, Captain Gina was kind enough to pick them up at out hotel in Cocoa Beach. They had a great time even though it was cut just a bit short by a storm. My 15 year old grandson was worn out after fighting a huge amber jack for hours. He loved it! The only bad thing I can say is that they never sent us the photographs they promised, even after I checked back with them.
