Fishing Boat

Boat fishing for Mackerel.

So, what are the best methods to catch Mackerel from a boat?

Mackerel travel in shoals so if you catch one Mackerel you can bet that the rest of his family is not far away as they swim and hunt bait fish in groups, the main thing when going out fishing for mackerel is locating them, that’s where the expert skipper of Kestrel Warrior 6 comes in.

What do Mackerel feed on?

Mackerel is a fast sleek predator, feeding on small bait fish. In turn as with everything else in the sea, bigger fish follow the shoal of Mackerel around, so it’s not unusual when fishing for Mackerel from a boat to catch larger fish such as Bass that feed on the Mackerel.

How do you locate a shoal of Mackerel?

When you are out on the boat fishing keep your eyes off for diving and feeding sea birds that will feed on bait fish forced to the surface by Mackerel. When you locate them like this you can catch hundreds of fish between 6 people in an hour.

What method do we use when boat fishing for Mackerel?

The favored method when novices fish for Mackerel is using a string of 4 -6 feathers or silver-type lures put over the side and fished between 8 and 20 feet. These mimic the bait fish that the Mackerel feed on. And when on top of a Mackerel shoal every hook will get attacked and produce strings of 4 -6 Mackerel weighing anything up to 2 and a half-pound each.
