Mangrove Jack

The Mangrove Jack or Lutjanus argentimaculatus (siakap merah/kakap) as it is known locally is one of our premiere estuarine sport fish. The Jack spends most of its juvenile years in coastal rivers or waters, before moving to offshore reefs as they reach adulthood. A wild Jack that weighs more than a kilo, in a river would be considered a good fish.

Jacks spend most of their lives in ambush of prey amongst the tangle of mangrove roots (or cover) they call home. They readily take lures and when they hit, they hit very hard. Then they speed off for home as fast as they can. If you reflexes are not quick enough, an encounter with a sizeable Jack can be an expensive affair.
