Spanish Mackerel Have Arrived On Cape Cod

Ryan Collins

Spanish Mackerel are here in the waters surrounding Cape Cod & the Islands.

If you are unfamiliar with Spanish Mackerel, they are a colorful and delicious fish that I usually encounter when I am fishing during the winter in Costa Rica.

The Spanish Macks in Costa Rica get quite large and can be caught from boat and from shore using epoxy jigs, swimming plugs, and topwater lures.


Spanish Mackerel are also great eating!

In fact you can watch our Spanish Mackerel Catch & Cook here on My Fishing Cape Cod to learn more.

Spanish Mackerel On
Cape Cod

For the past several years I have heard stories of anglers catching Spanish Mackerel here on Cape Cod, but I had never personally seen a Spanish Mack in Cape waters.

Yet that all changed a few days ago on August 23. 

Earlier in the week I published this post about the first albacore arriving on Cape, however during that trip we also managed to hook and land two nice Spanish Mackerel!
