Horse Mackerel ( Megalaspis cordyla )
Here are CJ and JR’s three Horse mackerel or Torpedo Scad which they caught while trolling small Rapala lures around the reefs of Laiya. This species was called Tanigue by the locals, because there is little differentiation between species of mackerel like fish. These fish are schooling pelagics and are commonly caught around 20-30 cm in size. These fish can grow up to 80cm and weigh around 4kgs.
