Hi, Anyone know if Mackerel are to be had from the harbour wall at Bridlington or Scarborough?
scarborough anywhere at high water for mackerel, best spots are marine drive, east pier end all the way back to the luna park. west pier also produces at high water. Try not to fish where boats are harboured / moored up. marine drive will also produce pollak on mackerel lures at times so keep a good grip on ya rod...
Great information faraday many thanks. Would my beach gear be ok or something smaller?
i use a 9ft shimano spinning rod, but if you have plent of space you can use something like a 12ft fixed spool rod and reel, i used to years ago. work ok but hard work.
Thanks again I think I will go for the spinning rod.
Hi. Have you had any luck with the mackerel?
I'm prob over on Saturday.
I went last Sunday for a look but no fishing. A few fishing at the end of the wall don't know what they had . Got loads of feathers and spinners now so will re-visit this Sunday and give it a go. Good luck if you give it a try.
Thanks mate. Good luck
Any news on the mackie guys. I didn't manage to get over.
Hi Danno, I managed to land a couple and my mate got 6, tasted fantastic! I used my beach rod with a Abu black max 6600 using feathers not very far from the wall.
Sounds like a plan for next week. I went to Filey just on bay side of the brigg.
Got quite a few off my yak good couple of hours up to high tide.
Hi again Rofin.
Just out of interest, where on the wall were you fishing?
And thanks again for the info so far.
We fished about half way down as the end was a bit busy. But with an impressive a bag like that I would stick with Filey well done mate.
Mackeral are well and truly in at the moment ! Took 40 in as many minutes yesterday about 150ft off marine drive on my little boat ! !
Thanks again Rofin. it's good on the yak, but honestly like fishing from the walls.
Reminds of my dad taking me when I was a lad.
That's me sorted for the weekend then, thanks for the info
