Crevalle jack, Caranx hippos, is a fast, saltwater fish that can be found in inland waters along the shoreline of the western Atlantic Ocean from Nova Scotia to Uruguay and the eastern Atlantic from Portugal to Angola. It has a large rounded head with large eyes and a dark silvery body that can show hints of blue-green to green-gold. They grow to more than three feet in length, though more commonly they are between one and two and a half feet long. The fish usually weighs between 15 to 30 pounds, but a 51 pound Crevalle Jack was taken off the coast of Florida. Crevalle jacks can be poisonous to eat due to the threat of ciguatera poisoning, but they are prized as a game fish.
Might not want to tell people that you went fishing for them but they are fun to catch and should be inside the jettys now. Put some new line on your reel and bring a sack of new Zara spooks for some big time blow-ups.
