haha - I had to look up fingermark - didn't know it was another name for mangrove jacks
Good luck with catching the big ones. How do you prepare them?

Hey Mark like Bob said there 2 different fish, the jacks move out to the reefs when they mature . I've seen them at 10 kg and apparently they get bigger, I just fillet skin and bone then flour, egg wash and panko bread crumbs and cook lightly in oil, yummy.

Nice one Bob can't wait to see photo the guys catching the big ones reckon these are the only ones that they can catch, the others break 10/0 hooks with 150 pound brade and electric deck winches
