Sierra Mackerel is a common catch around Coiba! Most are about the same size as a big trout and come skipping right in! This is a favorite breakfast fish and one of the best fish for fish tacos or Ceviche!

Have fun fighting these fast-moving fish on your sports fishing trip in Panama!

These game fish with razor sharp teeth are easily identified by their silver-blue body adorned with yellow-brownish spots on its side and its contrasting dorsal fins.  They are not choosy eaters; however, they eat anchovies, small fish, squid, sardines or anything they can get their jaws on!

The Sierra mackerel is a real treat for many game fishermen.  Its fast moving, aggressive, and can put up a good fight.  However, most of the true fighters are over 36 inches!
