Poppers

Heres the aftermath of throwing poppers at spanish mackerel for a few days.

This one survived, just

Too hectic to stop and take many photos

Single barbless hooks did the job and made unhooking a lot safer and quicker

I was using a Morethan Branzino with 20lb braid on a Millerod Stilleto my heavy gear that got a run was a Twin Power 6000 on a T Curve 10-15kg. There was a Daiwa dorado/Saltiga 4500 combo used to good effect as well as a Daiwa Certate 3500HD on a T curve power spin 5-8kg.

The sound of a reel on max drag when a shark got onto the fact that there was a fish in trouble was awesome.

There were so many spaniards that floating ures that had been bitten off were being sighted still floating but they would disappear every now and then.

If they went off the bite it was a matter of throwing out a deep diver and retrieving or going for a quick troll to find them again and get the poppers or stickbaits going.

One of the other guys had a sailfish smash a stickbait about 3m from the boat, chewed on it for a good 30secs but didn't get a hookup.

Same bloke banged one on fly.

I vivdly recall one retrieve getting hit into the air by one fish from the side and having another coming at the lure from behind before it hit the water.
