While this is a jack crevalle.

Agreed

Amberjack is better than the Jack Crevalle. VERY big difference in the meat and taste. The Amberjack will be a whiter meat with a dark red band down the center line. The Jack Crevalle will be dark meat everywhere.

The many that I've caught have both looked like the two pictures above. The one in the original post is slightly different looking to me.

(PS - Your deck hands look GREAT!)

Very much present in FL, dont eat the Cudda. Fish lower on the food chain like Snapper are much less likely to be an issue. Upper level predators like Cudda, can be a problem.

OK maybe Catfish

I don't know what it is, some kind of Jack?
I might be stating the obvious here, but on the off chance of preventing history from repeating itself...anything that puffs up when caught/aggravated is likely to kill you very dead in short space of time if eaten. They call it Fugu in Japan, puffer or blowfish in Oz.
When they cook Fugu they partially denature the toxin, but leave enough to make your lips tingle and maybe some other drug-like effects. It's a knife-edge game though - I would never risk eating it - plenty have died from incorrect preparation.

Anyone know what fish this is?

I've heard of the Fugu, seems it takes years to master the preparation of it too, but yes I assume for example sea snakes would kill you very dead, very quickly too if one bit you. I am sure I would neither pay for fugu, nor take the chance.
I knew there were many fish that are pretty nasty to eat, but of the ones you catch on a line, That look like a fish so to speak, I don't know if any that are poisonous to eat? If I was hungry enough, I bet even nasty, oily, bloody fish is good.
Like I said I know many who eat Mackerel, just I won't, fun to catch, but too bloody for me.
Used to fish in a big King tournament with my Brother out of Jacksonville, after the tournament there would be King cooked ways, I never found any that were very good.
I prefer Grouper myself, snapper is OK as are flounder, Wahoo was much better than I expected, we are still eating him
I expected being a type of Mackerel he would be bloody, but he is almost as good as a Grouper. White trout, Speckled Trout are good, as are Mullet, people used to would not eat Mullet as it is a trash fish, but if fresh it is very good. I wont eat Lady fish either.

My tastes tend to match yours, though you leave out blackfin and yellowfin tuna which, grilled properly, beat them all. Cobia are really good too and can often be caught near shore. I've often wondered though if some of the 'regional preferences' might not have some basis in fact, primarily due to the diet of the fish in question. I know mullet, for instance, are primarily herbivorous and wonder if the difference in their diet from muddy turbid water here to clean clear water 200 miles east of here could be the difference? Or even maybe something to do with the ground water runoff? Mostly through limestone in Florida, but mostly through dirt over here. Haven't actually done the taste test yet but keep threatening to... Just thinking out loud really...

Well, one thing would behoove any angler keeping fish, and that is to know what your fish is. In Florida, the minimum size for greater amberjack is 34" fork length. Guaranteed that the wildlife and fisheries officer knows which fish is which, and ignorance won't keep one from getting a ticket or worse. Believe there is also a regulated season for amberjack in most areas. Jack crevalle are 'unregulated'. By the way, the fish in the OP's post appears to be less than 30" long...
