This filleting video is also relevant for your smaller Mackerel Species, in Australia on the Great Barrier Reef we get school, spotty, Grey, and shark mackerel just to name a few.
This footage was taken on a recent three day fishing charter on Mako, a Steber 41, and did we catch some fish. We caught 8 spanish Mackerel in 45 minutes and left them biting as we were on our way to the Great Barrier Reef. Find a school of Spanish Mackerel and can be unreal fishing action, with numerous double hookups and even losing one to the sharks.
Spanish Mackerel can be caught on all our charters from day trips, liveaboard fishing charters and our famous Reefari Hardline, Mothershipping with Raptor II to the remotest regions of the Great Barrier Reef for some awesome fishing adventure.
