Bar Jack

Caught by Arthur using a flicky little maggot grub while dinghy trolling across the bay. It was his birthday breakfast and he enjoyed it very much. Big bar along its back and on its bottom tail fin. We have seen a couple when diving, too.

Common member of the jack family. Distinguished by its dark horizontal bar along its back (often with a lighter stripe below). Inhabit clear shallow waters near reefs. May be individual or in shoals. Maximum of 2 feet in length. Eats mostly fish. Often associated with wrasses.
