Almaco Jack



Almaco Jack looks like an Amberjack but you will want to eat these.

Delicious, no worms. These are good. Very powerful, hard pulling therefor, very exciting fish to hook into.

 Dry season months, over or down current of a rock that rises significantly toward the surface one hundred feet or deeper water. Big ones school up circling around during February & March and can be distinguished on the echo sounder. 

You might hook into one like this drifting live bonitos over certain undersea rocks, in hundred foot depths


You can tell an Almaco jack from an Amberjack definitely by it’s dorsal fins. On an Almaco Jack, the second dorsal fin is more than twice as tall as the leading one.


Almaco Jacks are pelagic, and show up here through out the year in small schools, circling under the shoals of bait aggregating near seamounts. 



Almaco Jacks according to Wikipedia, are farmed in Hawaii & Mexico, with a global production of 1 million pounds in 2008.
