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.
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.
