Can't always nail the tuna. Those Jacks are a fun hard fighting fish to catch (that is a good one your holding) and those Pargo are great to eat !! Nice trip.

We call the Jack Crevalles "canal tunas".  They are a blast to catch on light tackle. They will herd up schools of mullet and smash them into the seawalls wreaking havoc.
