First time out in the kayak this year and landed a stupendous 28 in a hour, very happy with that.

Got them all cleaned and stowed away so enjoy a couple slashed, rubbed with piri piri and given a quick grilling.

That sounds nice. Does Anybody have any other tasty ideas on how to cook them?

I've recently made a smoker for mine out of an old filing cabinet, so it's usually cold smoked then fried, or just fried fillets in oatmeal.

I fried a couple of lightly floured fillets in butter for lunch, and had them in a bap with lettuce tomato and dijon mayo, delish.

Really poor here ....will need to try going out on a boat I think. Fishing from the rocks a waste of time.

Knowing precisely nothing about mackerel except that they taste nice, is it worth going out on a boat trip next week in Cornwall?

Always, and if you're lucky you may also catch mackerel

In a true test of fishing faith, I have 30 people coming for an olympic barbeque on Sunday, and the star ingredient is still in the sea. It had better be calm tomorrow morning.
