This striking fish, with its silver-green scales and spiny fins, is a favorite of anglers, and that enthusiasm corresponds directly with a lack of catch-and-release restrictions. This creature can be caught and eaten in any season.

This makes it undeniably attractive, which helps to raise its sporting quality profile.


The Spanish Mackerel is a compact fish, reaching up to 19 inches and averaging 10 pounds. It's not noted for its strength and requires only low-grade tackle.


The Spanish Mackerel’s lean frame allows it to achieve high bursts of speed, averaging up to 40 miles per hour.


The Spanish Mackerel has a sharp lateral row of teeth, which it uses to cut fishing lines. It will weave its head back and forth relentlessly to free itself.

The Spanish Mackerel is a popular fish in Los Suenos, due both to its speed and its edibility. Utilize trolling techniques, as well as live bait, to tempt this creature to the surface; and never underestimate the precision of its teeth.
