Double-Lined Mackerel in Laiya

Last monday a friend from the Marshall Islands and I went out trolling in Laiya, Batangas.

Double Lined Mackerel

This Double-Lined mackerel (called a Tangigue by the local guys) took this 11cm blue Strike Pro Titan at around 4:30pm.

We were trolling slow not far from shore when we hooked up.  Here is another shot of the fish:

As you can see we also got a 6kg Dorado bull who is  poking his head into the pic 🙂

Here are some links about the fish:
