Mackeral trip surprise....

Jim Linehan, onboard Deora De, reports on a surprise catch on a mackeral trip. With the mackeral in plentiful supply again, Jim has been busy with evening trips targeting mackeral. During the week, one of his regular customers, Linda Lee, caught a specimen pouting while feathering for mackeral. Now that is unusual! Well done, Linda!! The fish weighed 3.75lbs....a hefty pouting at that.

The group had plenty of mackeral, but also picked up other species, such as red and grey gurnard, cod, pollack, and even ling. All on unbaited mackeral feathers! Even Jim was surprised, especially by the ling, as they were fishing a mark close inshore. They must have just hit it right, as by the end of the night they even had more pollack and cod than mackeral, and the mackeral were by no means scarce!!!
