It's still very slow here, there are some about, but not many. Am starting to think that it will just be a quiet year..............

Roughly where abouts are you, Northern Boy? I think I spoke too soon. I've been out most days this week, and have had a grand total of 4 mackerel. I think you might be right, quiet year.

The other thing I've noticed is that, of the few mackerel we've had this year, about a third of them have been heaving with parasitic worms. I don't know whether this has anything to do with their scarcity, but I have never noticed it in mackerel before.

Are there many still about? I've managed to catch a good few this year from the beach and I'm wondering when they move off-shore.

Caught some from a kayak two weeks ago, only about 40m off shore. I might try again this weekend if the weather is favourable.
