Within this section we are offering specific tackle and lures known to catch Spanish Mackerel. Spanish Mackerel are a swift and strong fish that generally roams in large schools, staying close to shore, around mouths of channels and passes and over wrecks and artificial reefs. They can be found in the Atlantic Ocean, the Gulf of Mexico and within the bays. The Spanish Mackerel is a very active fish that is a spectacular fighter given its weight when hooked.
Most anglers use light to medium tackle to target Spanish Mackerel consisting of mono or braided line in the 12 to 20 pound class, wire or heavy fluorocarbon leaders and a variety of artificial lures.
For the beginning to intermediate angler we suggest that you consider purchasing one of our loaded inshore tackle systems which will give you detailed instructions on exactly which lures should be fished and when.
