Banded rudderfish OR juvenile Amberjack. Donít fall into the lesser amberjack trap... be sure if you keep it. Iím not positive.

I think different jacks have different number of gill rakers.

I don't know the difference though and it's not worth taking a chance to me.

if you don't know anybody to say greater or lesser or maybe almaco or maybe bluerunner.....you better count the gill rakers.
not worth it. just throw it back and don't tell the fwc.

banded rudder....they catch them at pb pier and fwc classifies those fish as that......I'm not LEO ,but that's what I've seen.....I usually let them go or use them for a big king bait....

All the juvie banded rudder fish I've ever seen are, uh, banded. Looks like an AJ to me. Caught a ton of 2-3 pound banded rudder fish offshore the other day. Anybody ever eat em? The grouper and snapper loved em.
