Greater Amberjack


Amberjack are usually targeted with live or cut bait, or jigs, fished a few feet above the bottom, over a wreck, or around the legs of oil and gas drilling rigs. When a fish hits, it slams hard and the fisherman must set the hook and apply pressure in order to keep his quarry from turning into the structure and cutting the line. Those first fish-stopping moments are all-important.
