Jack Fish are part of the Carangidae family of fish. Commonly found in tropical or temperate ocean waters and coastal regions, these predatory predators prowl the surf zone looking for prey.
Sharks often land on Texas beaches after becoming hooked on these fish as bait, with many of the larger specimens caught using this tactic.
