Spanish Mackerel Getting Airborne After Stickbaits

The lows and highs of throwing stickbaits for Spanish Mackerel… The word from those in the know, Jewbangernofranger & TheOfficialSplasher (Instagram) is that when Spaniards feel like getting airborne the hook-up rate is reduced to 1 in 10!!! We found this out on a quick pre-work run where bite-offs and pulled hooks were-a-plenty…

Still the froth levels were at ridiculous highs as every cast was met with the nervous anticipation of another airborne torpedo YEWWWWWWWWWW!!!
