There's something about the cutting on their teeth that makes it sharp, even for the small ones. I ever got bitten by a small one caught on tamban jig, the wound is hard to close and I kept bleeding. :cry:

Where do you find this predatory fish? I hear Spanish mackerels are really tasty!

You can usually find them where there are abundance of herrings and scads. You can certainly encounter this mackerel at Bedok Jetty.
