An unusually large Spanish Mackerel was caught on the Explorer on April 6. Charles Ahearn knocked this out on a flyrod, which is a new tactic for this area. Captain David is always game to learn something new, so he pulled back the outriggers and let loose the flies!

This fella probably weighs over 25 lbs. which makes it one of the beefier macarelas of the season.

Nice work on this tasty fish which they also backed up with a few Groupers.
