I can't for the life of me figure out why you constantly bash Rockfish, Snakehead, Perch, Catfish but feel so strongly about Mackerel. The only thing that makes them hard to catch is that they are never around. Once you see Mackerel leaping out of the water they are easy to catch. They pull pretty good but no better than a Bluefish and no where near a Snakehead. And not particularly good table fare. And trolling is no fun at all but I bet that is how you target them.They’re a cool fish to target
Wow Try wrapping hole fish or fillet in alluminum foil wipe fish with virgin olive oil salt and pepper little old-bay throw on grill 8 minutes for fillet and 20 min whole fish . If you don’t like it you don’t like beer sex or trucksMackerel suck to eat other than smoked.
