There are two species of saratoga in Australia, the southern saratoga (S. Leichardti) and the northern or gulf saratoga (S. jardinii), and they belong to the family osteoglossidae. Saratoga can reach about 1m and weigh 7-8kg, but are commonly encountered around 50-60cm and 2kg.
Saratoga are opportunistic hunters, cruising along the surface ready to pounce on anything that enters their space. Lure caters can sight cast to saratoga with a range of hard-bodies, topwater lures, soft plastics and flies with great success. Here are some tackle recommendations when chasing black marlin.
