Spanish Mackerel are one of the key species that we target on Nomad Sportfishing Charters. They are an amazing fish to catch either casting, trolling or jigging. The readily take surface poppers and stickbaits, and they love a trolled DTX minnow, Madscad or Maverick Roughwater.
When casting for spanish mackerel ethey do love a Chug Norris, but the Riptide 200 in either float or sink is also a deadly choice. If the baitfish are a little smaller in the area, then a madscad 150 is often the perfect choice for casting. The unique action of the maverick roughwater is particularly appealing when trolling around schools of smaller tuna. However you choose to target them, the gear below will help you catch more spanish mackerel more often, no matter where you are fishing.
