Amberjack

Redfish, Red Drum, Puppy Drum, Channel Bass

Amberjack Description: Amber Jacks have a dark stripe that extends from nose to in front of dorsal fin that becomes more promenant when fish is in feeding mode; no scutes; soft dorsal base less than twice the length of the anal fin base. Most AmberJack are large heavy fish that are amber in color.

Where Amberjack Are Found: This is an OFFSHORE species associated with rocky reefs, debris, and wrecks, typically in 60 - 240 feet of water that are not often caught nearshore in East Central Florida. We find amberjack off the Cocoa Beach and East Central Florida on wrecks and deep rock ledges and hard bottom debre.

Florida Record Amberjack: 142 Pounds

Remarks: Prepare for Battle. This species comes with many disclosures like if your pregnant, heart problems or just plain whimpy you might not want to tangle with these guys.
Amberjack redefine "tough fish" and being the largest member of the jack family you might want to reconsider talking boldly about any other fish fights until you tangle with this species.

Florida Amberjack Regulations: Must be at least 28" fork of the tail in the Atlantic; 30" fork of the tail in the Gulf. One per harvester per day.

More Amber Jack Information

The fish that will give you a heart attack is probably the amberjack on a hot afternoon on a deep Florida wreck. The amberjack will bring a redneck angler to his knees at the side of the boat and screaming for a cold beer after he stuggles to bring it aboard. One of the Jack family and scaling over 100 pounds, an amberjack is a tough fighter and pretty good on the table too. Amberjack are caught from May on till October on deep wrecks and structure off Port Canaveral and can be a great first fish for a zealous angler.
