Fishing has been very good this year with Mackerels, Cod, Pollock and Coalfish. Today I went out for some mackerels for dinner. Made some nice filets that is going in the frying pan.
Remember to use floating device or Life Vest. I use a safety knife from Victorinox or Wenger on the belt and a MT with me always.
Also have in mind that a large ship like the one on the picture cannot stop without a long distance. Take a 360 degree observation from time to time to look for boats. Use the hearing sense as well. Today it was enough mackerels to fill a boat but it is no
point of taking too many. Mackerels like plain black hooks with for example 6 hooks and a sinker. It also likes plain metal hooks with colored feathers. Many different colors can be used. It also bites on rubber worms and on hooks with the spoon shape. It
hunts in shoals or in single. It goes at different depths from the bottom up to the surface. It is very fast and bites willingly on many types of lures too. It will also bite on a fly. You can sit on a place waiting for the shoal to arrive or gather. Or you can use different locations and change places looking for them. One method that is effective is hanging the line after the boat and as soon as you notice a bite you stop the
boat and perhaps you are just above a large shoal. Getting 6 on a time is very fun in deed. The mackerel tastes wonderful and small ones taste a bite different than the medium. The large ones can also be different. All are very good for the frying pan or hot
smoking. Boiled mackerels usually require the larger ones. It is also excellent to cut in small long pieces to be used as bait for Cod, Pollock and other fish. Mackerels are one of the best health foods you can get with a lot of energy for the body. It is
smart to during warm weather to have a box with some cooling elements to keep it cool because it is best as fresh as possible.
