I'm certainly no expert on fishing in spain but all I have ever had from the rocks were small breamy type fish and a small octopus. I dont know about mackerel, I have never seen them but it may be worth a post in the international forum for someone more local to give you some answers.

Just take a light spinning outfit for small plugs/spinners and a short wire trace and a telescopic Rod thatll handle large floats and light ledgering.You can get a half decent one out there for around 30 quid.

Around harbours/Sea Walls will be chocca with Mullet and Bream.Use squid,bread paste and strips of Mackerel Belly

when i have been there in the past the mullet have been shy to your hookbait even though they are mostly in big shoals. I found it the most productive way to catch them was to make a trick knot about 6inches from the hook,put a piece of cob bread in the knot then pull it tight to hold the bread firmly. Use breadflake out of the cob for the hook, the mullet then think the flake is falling from the cob so they take the flake first there is no need to use float or a lead fishing this way because they nearly take the rod out of your hands :idea: :idea: :idea:
