Pacific Jack Crevalle, Caranx caninus: Caught by Kees Broekhuizen at Punta Colorada, Baja California Sur, Mexico. "In the first 11 days of my last vacation I had caught Jacks between 25 and 34 inches just about every second morning. My friends Kees Broekhuizen and Hans van den Berg arrived November 2nd in the afternoon and I took them out surf fishing before dawn on November 3rd. Kees Broekhuizen and I made our first cast and right away we got a double strike. After a 'bend or burst battle' of about half-an-hour Kees, beached his fish of 35 inches. I landed mine of 37 inches after 43 minutes on 12-pound line. Both fish took us up and down the beach relentlessly. Both fish were of course released alive. According to the IGFA formula (length between the corner of the mouth and the fork of the tail times girth times girth divided by 800) my fish weighed 24.3 pounds. My friends fish 21 pounds, which are up and around line-class world record sizes for the Pacific Jack Crevalle. Besides the Jacks we would catch at least a few (sometimes many) Ladyfish, Sierra, Lookdown, or small Roosterfish every morning. Fishing was never better than last October/November."
