Central Florida Jack
Fishing For Jack Crevelle Off Central Florida's Coastline
Sunday August 20, 2017
Jack Crevalle are a beautiful color of bluish-green to greenish-gold on their backs and have silvery or yellowish bellies. The Jack's soft dorsal and anal fins are almost identical in size and they have a prominent black spot on the gill cover. They also have a black spot at the base of each pectoral fins and no scales on the throat.
Jacks are common in both INSHORE waters and the open sea. They seem to show up anywhere and everywhere but more often where there's plenty of food or baitfish around. Look for schools of jacks turning the water yellow or finning as they circle near the surface of the water. Jacks will travel into fresh or brackish water and are often seen in springs that lead into the ocean.
One of the memorable catches for a saltwater angler is their first Jack. The crevalle tend to stay inshore or near offshore and can be caught in both salt and freshwater rivers around florida and other southern states. Jacks are often seen under diving birds making a commotion on the water surface while feeding on bait. Jacks tolerate a wide range of salinities; schools corner a school of baitfish at the surface and feed with commotion that can be seen at great distances; feeds mainly on small fish; peak spawning occurs OFFSHORE from March through September.
No limit or size regulation.
