Horse-Eye Jack GALLERY

Caranx latus

This jack has the largest eye (also known as Big-eye Jack) compared to body size of any Jack found around the island. They have bright yellow tails and are seen in small groups both as juveniles in shallow waters and also in schools when feeding. If you happen to experience a little fish that swims up in front of you and 'tags' along, they are usually juvenile Horse-eye Jacks. Find them with schools of Tarpon or other Jacks when schools of fry are present.  More shy than the Bar Jack. They can grow up to 2 feet, but snorkeling in shallow water most Horse-eye Jacks that you will see will be schools of juveniles from a few inches to 8 inches in length.
