This fish, known also as the Horse Eye Jack or the Big Eye Jack, is noted for its exceptionally large eyes and silver scales. It often proves popular with anglers, offering unique photo and trophy opportunities.

Its sporting quality profile, however, also makes it a perfect option for near-shore adventures.


The Horse Eye Trevally is a large fish, with dorsal fins reaching up to 30 inches. Its heavy body affords it reasonable strength and large-grade tackle is suggested.


The Horse Eye Trevally is quick. It uses its bullet-like body to push through the water, sustaining speeds of up to 30 miles per hour.


The Horse Eye Trevally will dive deep into the water when caught, straining against the line for hours and keeping far from the surface.

Capturing a Horse Eye Trevally is never easy. Anglers must battle this breed’s superior speed with steady casting and strong tackle. The dynamic appearance of this fish, however, makes even the lengthiest reel-ins worthwhile.
