We are still waiting for conditions to settle down and the blue water to move close to shore, but in the meanwhile there has been a nice surprise coming to the shores near Garza: the Ciero Mackerel.

Named for there zero-shaped spots (‘Ciero’ is Spanish for ‘zero’ and they are pronounced almost identically), these fish are the total package for fun angling: good fighters, hard biting and great tasting. A genetic cousin of the King Mackerel, the Ciero makes for fantastic sushi.
