Horse Mackerel fishing

The horse mackerel (Trachurus trachurus) is a common species found in the eastern Atlantic Ocean off Europe from Norway to South Africa and into the south-eastern Indian Ocean to Mozambique. It belongs to the same family as the giant trevally.

They are normally between 20 and 30 cm, although the larger fish can grow up to 70 cm and weigh around 2-3kg.

Horse mackerel are caught with feathers (sabiki rigs), small lures and jigs. They are also excellent live bait for tuna fishing for example.
