Amberjacks are not shy or picky eaters, So you can make all of the noise you want and use just about any lively bait fish. Commonly used bait fish include cigar minnows, grunts ,pinfish, pigfish and sand perch. Amberjack like to swim above the reefs, when Amberjacks get excited they will hit topwat baits as well as jigs, spoons and diving lures. Amberjacks are extremely strong and fierce fighters. Even the smaller ones can wear a person down. Its important to have the drag preset to match the strength of the angler to the equipment to prevent lost or broken off fish.

Recreational anglers commonly catch Triggerfish on squid and cut bait but they are also taken with spear guns. Triggerfish and notorious bait stealers and commonly frustrate anglers that are trying to target the larger grouper or red snapper. Triggerfish have and hard bony mouth with teeth than can bite and anglers finger off so be very carful when taking them off the hook, you will need a small very sharp hook to catch them. Triggerfish average 2-5 pounds and have a delicious taste. Triggerfish get their name from two movable spinseon top of the fish.
