Default Jack Cravelle

There used to be lots of Jack Cravelle in Bayou Grande. Where did they go? Where can I find them? Looking for some fighting action.

I was surprised by a 30 pounder in about 40 feet of water off Fort Morgan. The Bonita were breaking on small bait, and I was throwing a spoon on a fairly light spinning rod to catch them for bait. I had two, threw again at the group, and was quite surprised when the fish just kept running. Unfortunately, he did not get off, so I wasted about 30 minutes on that big dude.

3 hours? geeze. I could see them not being fun when you hook them on the wrong rod/reel. Probably a good idea to tie in a section of lighter tippet so you can break em off next time instead of being stuck in a 3 hour fight.

I had it on a 15 pound combo and 15 pound braid and fluoro leader. It was a beast.

They're fun on a fly-rod. I don't use a fly, I use fresh l-y's on fly-rod, reel, line. Just have a lot of line and be ready to chase it to recover line. Always had good luck in Escambia Bay.
