Spanish Mackerel - (Scomberomorous maculatus) - Spanish mackerel usually travel in rather large schools, following the schools of baitfish upon which they feed. They are usually available to the fly fisherman when they are near the beach or in the passes, although they sometimes will come into the bays and canals when chasing their prey. Although only 1-2 pounds in size, they can be a lot of fun on a flyrod; especially if you happen upon a large school in a feeding frenzy. Wire leaders or at least very heavy shock tippets are required because of their sharp teeth.. They are most prevalent in southwest Florida in the winter, when water temperatures are in the 70 degree range.
