If anyone likes mackeral they sure are running in Blue Hill bay! A couple of my friends and I went yesterday and we got 117 fish in about 3 hours. What fun!
Now for those of you who might say - what a waste.........do not dispare. We love to eat mackeral. I have them all cleaned, wrapped and frozen in meal size packages. Yum, yum. For those of you outdoor folks, these can even be done over the campfire. The ones I cooked last night I rolled in butter, panko flakes and a squirt of lemon juice.
We were using a couple kinds of mackeral jigs - tubes and feathers. It didn't seem to matter. They were biting whether we were trolling or just sitting still. A fun day and the colors are just starting to look beautiful down that way.
There are several boat launches in the area and some caches too. If you like to fish this is a good way to get your fix.
Everyone enjoy this nice fall weather. We will be watching the flakes fall soon.
