Spanish Mackerel

Mackerel - Sierra


Common at 1-3 pounds; not too unusual at 5-7 pounds; maximum potential over 10 pounds. World record is 12 pounds.

Food Value

Good, but it does have a high-oil flesh, which makes it more suitable for broiling than frying. Good smoked too.

Fishing Method

Drifting; Still Fishing; Trolling with live bait and artificial lures.

Fighting Characteristics

Long runs near surface, often followed by shorter runs in mid water. It fights furiously, swimming rapidly but seldom leaping from the water.
