BIG jack crevalle on vertical jig

6/1 out of Hillsboro - thought this was an odd catch as we've never caught a crevalle on a vertical jig before. We were drifting over the Hydro Atlantic. I of course caught the wreck so was fiddling with getting a new hook on when my buddy dropped a jig down way off the reef (we had drifted pretty far) and hooked into this monster. Probably the biggest crevalle I've ever seen. It was entertaining to watch the fight - probably fought harder than an amberjack twice its size.

    The best fish to catch everything else is by catch

    They hit jigs pretty consistently if they're around.  Pound for pound one of the hardest fighters out there.  What a blast to catch
