The Ballyhoo makes for a good bait fish when targeting Spanish Mackerel and Grouper, Kingfish, Snapper, and Amberjack.

The Ballyhoo is characterized by his long slende body, a dorsal fin that is set well towards the aft and a half-beak extending from his only his lower jaw.

This fish is found in deeper waters in coastal (deep bays and channels) or roamong the open water.

Smallpieces of cutbait, shrimp or chum make foir the best natural bait, with cast netting being the preferred method over using extremly light and small tackle. Artificials are not used when targeting this fish.
