sorry for my reply about them being good for bait only what i forgot to mention is i only fish from a boat so to me they are a burden as you cant get any other species whilst they are around but i gotta say yes fishing with float for them is a decent sport but not with feathers and of course davethecod my son really gets bored with his dads company hmmm

I am coming down on Friday afternoon and fishing through the night. Can Mackie be caught at night if so is it the same light weight and feathers.

Just want something to do while the other 2 rods are in the water!

Thanks

Matt

Don't think you can, far as I understand they hunt by sight which is why they are around more in clear still waters.
Like you I might have a go if other fishing is quiet, why not, it's a bit of fun.
I made a smoker out of an old wok, co-op sell wood chips which are great for it. Gotta admit the first time I did it was on the kitchen hob, bad idea, smoked the whole house out!!!! I still do it indoors as I don't have a garden but have perfected a smoke seal to prevent the smog!!!

Another thing I do which is pretty lazy is float fish a mackeral trace. I use a ball float which will take a reasonable weight, cast it and leave it for the mackeral to pass, never fails. This works great at samphire as the mackeral chase the whitebait along the wall.

Would be interested if they are around at night so let us know!!!
Happy fishing
Martin
