Default Fish ID

I posted this fish in Surf Reports as a Spanish, but a helpful member says it is a Cero. Did not know this fish lived here. Not sure how it differs from a Spanish. It was about 14-15 inches.

Cero mackerel have a thin stripe in between the spots.

That is 100% spanish mackerel.

Cero have a long brown bar instead of just the 'spots & dashes' that a spanish have...


And they are basically absent from the northern GoM...
