Love Those Pine Island Jacks


We never turn down a shot at a big jack on my boat, especially with the fly rod.  There have been plenty of them cruising up and the shorelines of Matlacha Pass all month and they rarely let us down when they see anything moving in front of them.  My buddy Don Atkinson nailed this six pounder on his very last cast of the day on Friday afternoon and saved us from going home with the skunk still in the boat.  They don't have the glamour of tarpon or snook this time of year but I'll fish for jacks any chance I get.
