Jack Crevalle

Jack Crevalle
Scientific Name: Caranx hippos
Common Name: Jack
Description: Jack Crevalles are pugnacious looking fish which live up to those looks. A dark spot on the gill cover and steeply convex forehead separate this species from other jackfish. Strong bony scutes on the tail are common to all jacks. The Texas record is 52.25 inches, 50.25 pounds in 1976. While eaten in some parts of the world Jacks are not considered good table fare. The meat is very bloody. Jacks are excellent shark bait and are quite a challenge on light tackle. Take limits: No limits
