I graduated from Sam in August of 2001. And from what I've been seeing at work, Bearkats are taking over. That school is growing like wildfire.

Did you keep that for shark bait? Or did you keep it to eat?
:confused: Have you ever eaten' Jacks?

I caught a few BIG ones not too long ago, (I posted 'em).

I cut 'em both up in nice strips for bait and froze 'em. :cheers:

Some Ladies approached me and wanted one of the heads for soup, which I accomodated, and almost cut my hand off in the process, as I did'nt have my hacksaw with me. :cry:

Is that a Crevelle or an Amber?

For some reason it looks kinda like an AJ to me, but I didn't think they could be caught in the surf. I do know that a lot of CJs are caught in the surf. But then I have never seen a CJ in person, only in pics.

Nah, I don't eat jacks, I don't eat much fish either. The whole skipjack eating thing is something I did out of pure curiousity.

Jerry, Thats a jack cravelle, but it does look like an AJ....But, its missing that stripe on the eye's that AJ's have.

The thing everyone of you have missed so far, is the black spot on the gill plate. That screams Jack Crevelle. There are several Jacks that look almost exactly like the Crevelle but they don't have that black spot.

Crevelle. I used it for shark bait. That was one of three caught that day. They were knocking shad out of the water left and right. I saw one guy hook up on his curado with about 10lb test. He had a time needless to say.
