Default Re: Hey All!

Fresh mackerel can be hit or miss man. Try calling Saco Bay Bait & Tackle before ya head down and see if they have any (don't let them fool ya if they tell ya it's fresh frozen...usually means garbage). If they don't have any you may wanna catch your own, either up your way or make a stop at the Maine State Pier. Use either a sabiki rig or a small hook under a bobber with a tiny piece of mackerel/herring/clam. If all else fails go with plan B and get yourself a dozen blood/sand worms and float them (I prefer 2 at a time) using a fish finder rig and a 7/0 circle hook, 3 or 4 oz pyramid sinker.
