    Is that a pilotfish or banded rudderfish or some Hawaiian fish I've never heard of? Just curious ? It's got that nice powerful jack look to it!
    It's a barred jack. It didn't make a huge run like a bonefish, but it still was a nice fight!

    Got a good sized jack in FL once. Fought him for a couple minutes, he wouldnt give an inch for a long time, just kept pacing the shoreline, swimming back and forth and tugging back when I pulled.

    Eventually I thought I had him close enough to shore to snag. I grabbed my rod in the middle, stupidly holding the line against the shaft. As soon as I did, he ran, line couldnt give, snapped off my Ultra Shrimp and went on his merry way.

    I think the worst thing about it for me was that I lost the fly he went after since I only had one and it apparently worked pretty well.

    Action pics from the marsh east of New Orleans out of Hopedale with guides Greg Dini & Miles LaRose on March 12. Cold winds but fishing was great. All fish were sight casted using bushy EP & Rabbit tailed 1/0 flies. We all used 8wt with the wind and grass a 9 or 10wt would be fine choices too. Average casting distance was 30ft. All fish were sight casted no blind casting.

    Thomas with a 7#+ Sheepshead:


    Dad (me) even caught a couple (it was cold & windy thus the old woman look):
