Jack Attack Off Matlacha
I love everything about these fish. The ten pound jack crevalles that are cruising the shallows right now are one of the greatest things you'll ever catch on light tackle. My friend Andy Glosser from PA landed this one on a white Skitter Walk lure after we saw it busting on the surface in another boat's wake. Watching a big jack hit a top water is the most entertaining thing in all of flats fishing and it's not too tough to do in October. Work the tree lines at high tide and look for the birds diving on the surface in the deeper water any time of day. If you see a flock of terns hitting the surface it's almost a sure thing that some crevalles will be under them this time of year.
