you couldnt go wrong.could have caught on a crab line.looking for the bigger swirls and hopefully getting the bigger fish was the hard bit.debarb all my hooks so just shake the mackie off.keep the bigger ones .you would be surprised how hard a small macky fights,compared to bass of same size.
mullet different subject as ive found out. :)

We had some good fun with mackeral on very light plugging gear last weekend at Pagham. Shows you don't need to whack out a string of feathers and a 4oz lead to catch a lot of mackeral especially when they are in so close

Well done mick, glad you had a good time. I went out 7 times on holiday, not a nibble. might get out saturday, they should be in at scabby filey etc. trouble is macky are no sport, ive caught them with tin foil, By the way, holiday was a bit of a disaster, i was ill all the time, had to come home to see a Dr, 5 days early. Cheers..Mick
