Default My First Jack Crevalles

I caught my very first Jack Crevalles today! :letsdrink

I did all my "work, chores, and errands", then grabbed some pink Gulp strips from Half Hitch, & headed for the Point again this afternoon. Spent two hours all by lonesome ina little "sweet spot" - catching small flounder, big pinfish, & then got into the Jacks! They were small but man they hit hard and pull hard! Lots of fun! =)

I think I know where I will be againtomorrow afternoon.. lol.

The first one.



This one bit me. I was trying to remove the circle hook but he flipped and my finger went in its mouth. Left me with a fewmeaningful scratches. :P

^^ Part of the reason I go back there is it's one of a very few spots that is free of weeds & grass= PITA. I can go10 yards to the left or right & get weeds and/or either nothing atall- then go back to that spot and get fish every cast.

I sure hope they get bigger soon - Ifeel like I'vehadenough "practice" with the small oneslately

Sweet Amanda! I have only caught one Jack. After about 50 failed attempts casting into a school and not getting a hookup, Wayne-O was nice enough to hook one and pass me the pole!:doh

Thing fought like a shark! I ate it too.

That hole must be thick with those small flounder for you to be able to get on them like that every time!!! Great job.:letsdrink

Reefinatical,

I caught my first Jack Crevalles on fly rod last month down in PCB. It was awsome! They fight really hard for the hand size ones I got into.
