Amberjack has to be the hardest fighting fish you can catch on an average day trip. They average around 20-25 pounds when you get to keep one at 30 inches long, the minimum size limit. You are allowed to keep one per person per day with none allowed for the Captain or Crew. They are closed June 1 thru July 31. We catch some of these fish in the 75-80 lb. class and are known to get up to as large as 130 pounds. Most of the time you can get them in 100-150 feet of water, however I have seen them in 50 feet and especially in the late season as deep as 400 feet. You really have to bring your "A" game when fishing for these monster fish.
