The Atlantic spadefish can be found in the western part of the Atlantic Ocean. They are commonly found in shallow waters off the coast of the southeastern United States and in the Caribbean. They put up a good fight on light tackle making them a popular gamefish, especially during the summer months when they are most active. Adult Atlantic spadefish are mostly found offshore on reefs and wrecks.
