Greater Amber Jack
Greater Amberjack are known for their tenacity. This is a strong fighting fish commonly caught on jigs, live bait and lures. Winter water temps in the Gulf of Mexico really get them fired up. Recently Capt Andrew was throwing around a large topwater plug. Chugging it along to see what he could bring up to the surface. It wasn't long until he had followers. BIG greater amberjack were chasing it in packs of 5-10. Just missing the treble hooks and making a commotion on the surface. Finally he hooks into one on a Penn Battle 6000. This fish was a fun fight, always making runs towards the bottom. The treble hooks held up and he was able to get this fish boat side for a quick photo before release.
