Default They love the macks!

Went out yesterday and jigged up some macks in the harbor. Getting tougher and tougher to find consistently but well worth the time...Caught a bunch of cookie cutter 26-32 inchers...And this monster showed up....Oh course my buddy got it so he's going to have bragging rights (which he's already been using the rest of the day and ride home)...As you can see, he was a bit excited.

Nice work Chad! You sure out fished me on Sunday :)

As the captain you deserve bragging rights for any fish landed from your boat!

That's what I was telling him but he wasn't having it. Good time out there except the wind picked up and it was a wet bumpy ride back in. We actually stopped on the way in trying for some flounder and he ended up getting a nice fatty that's going to make some good fillets.

Anyone ever catch mackerel from shore or is that a boat only type of thing?

It's possible but you have to get lucky. I would try from the hull gut casting from the tip of Hull towards Georges island. Your better off going for stripers from shore though.

I was thinking of trying to catch a few and fish them for stripers but I have never caught/fished for a mackerel before.

You could soak some bait for a bass while you throw a small jig out there to see if you can get a few. That being said, your better off on a boat if you want to do the mac thing.
