Jack Crevalle fishing video (Giant Trevally)

In Australia we call them Trevally and in Fiji they just call them big, but no matter what they are called these fish fight like a freight train and never give up. In the tropical parts of Australia where I live they are often a fishing guides backup option when more desirable species aren't biting. Even local rec fishermen will move spots because all they are catching are big Trevally. However, I really rate them as a great sportfish and I will never turn one down.

They are generally caught on lures around structure and they just adore big surface lures (poppers). They can grow up to the size of a small car and the ones from Fiji and Midway Island are some of the biggest I have ever seen. Enjoy the video.
