Jack Crevalle

The Jack Crevalle is one of the many types of Jacks you will find on your sports fishing trip in Panama!

On your sports fishing trip in Panama, you will discover a lot of Jacks. One of those Jacks are the Pacific Crevalle. It’s a powerful predator and one of the most common inshore catches on our Panama fishing charters.

This powerful predator is our most common inshore catch. We have a lot of Jacks here. Casting top-water plugs will bring repeated jack attacks in between Roosterfish & Cubera. You’ll want at least a med – heavy rod because they are tough to bring in. Anyone who does not think Jacks are good eating has never eaten one. I love a jack sandwich. Jacks taste great deep fried & served with catsup or slow cooked in a crock pot and served with mustard, salt & pepper on white bread, tastes like roast beef. We should let the snappers go and eat jack.

In addition to being found in Panama, they are also found in tropical waters such as:

  • California
  • Mexico
  • Central and South America
  • Eastern Pacific Ocean
  • Offshore Pacific Islands

You will find Pacific Crevalle inhabiting:

  • Sandy and rocky substrates
  • Bays
  • Lagoons
  • Harbors
  • Estuaries

When it comes to its body, the Pacific Crevalle has a similar shape as other members in the Jack family. It’s a relatively large fish and can weigh up to 70 pounds. It has a blue-ish—greenish dorsal fin and is golden or silvery-white, ventrally.

The Pacific Crevalle is a fast and strong fighting fish. So, on your next sports fishing trip in Panama, you can be assured, you will be in an epic battle! When hooked, most members of the Jack family tend to turn on their sides which presents an even more challenging fight to any angler hooked into a Jack.
