Pine Island Jack Crevalles

I love these fish more than almost anything that swims.  Jack Crevalle are violent, indiscriminant predators and if they were a bit more edible they'd be the greatest game species ever.  Angler North Goodwin landed this five pounder on a Gulp Shrimp after casting into a blitzing school in Matlacha Pass.  This was a day saving catch since the wind and negative-low tides made sight casting to snook and reds a real chore.  Way to go, North.
