Mackerel Man is back and is enjoying his summer!

Same story as you’ve all been reading, but the bite turned back on Monday with exceptional weather and light traffic.

Anchored up at the middle grounds and steadily picked off some nice ones on the flylined sardines. Nothing fancy or difficult. Just right place, right time.

Of note: 8 of these fish were male with large sperms sacks, and 1 was a pregnant female. Haven’t seen the ratio 8:1 before.

    Nice to see the mackerel man back in action. I was beginning to think he never came back from vacation in the Dominican Republic or was "Clintonized" :D

    Nice fish, too!
