THE SPANISH INVASION HAS OCCURRED
The Spanish mackerel arrived at the coast last week in full force. They're great targets for trolling, fly fishing and spinfishing. One of the big questions when targeting fish with teeth is what type of leader to use. Some people use fluorocarbon and some people use a lighter gauge wire leader. If you use fluoro, you'll need to check for nicks regularly. If you use wire, then you'll need to be proficient with the haywire twist so you don't cut your hand when handling the fish. Both leaders has its pros and cons. Also, while you fish for these guys, keep your eyes on alert for cobia.
