The main spawning reefs for Spanish Mackerel on the Great Barrier Reef are Rib Reef, Bramble Reef, Britomart Reef, Keeper Reef, John Brewer reef and Lodestone Reef.
Trevor Fuller designs and makes mackerel lures to have the flexibility to catch mackerel at different times of day and in different conditions. This video shows four of his lures.
