Talking 92lbs AJ, All this time I thought I was shooting amberjack

Here is something to know guys!

Amberjacks and Almaco Jacks are not the same.... the almaco is good eating and can be recognized by it's bulkier appearance.... The things you learn while in BAJA.

I shot these guys a few days ago, the first is a killshot on a 56 pounder for the hall of fame, the second is a 92 pounds monster!

Skip to 1:40 if you don't want an intro, also stay tuned for the second part with the BIG fish.

The AJ's I shoot are always way bigger than the Almaco ...and more prevalent ...I like to eat both,,,but DEFINATELY favor the Almaco over the AJ!
