Mackerel are surface feeders like the Garfish, can be found during the summer months shoaling close to the shore in search of fry in large numbers. Baits: will except most baits even a bare hook at times! but a strip of fish generally works best. you will see many sea anglers using up to 6 feathers to catch these fish from the shore and filling all these hooks with fish at the same time!.
