From the scombrid family, mackerel moves in schools (group of fish), its average size varies between 25 and 40 cm and weighs on average 2 lbs.

Several means are used to catch Mackerel.

Among these, the “Machine Gun” is very effective. It consists of several colored feathers attached on a line of plus or minus 5 feathers. Mackerel is fished with the ” Jig ” which means that the fisherman throws and brings back the line constantly in order to fall on the Mackerel Bank.
