Anyone know if they are catching Macs at the Canso Causeway?

Also is there any other places to fish mackerel around Port Hawkesbury or surrounding areas?
I do not mind a bit of a drive.

Hi Gary:

You seem to go out every day during Mackerel season. I'm curious do you go out pretty much the same time? What kind of boat do yo have? Do yo Mackerel feathers or what other kind of lures do yo use.

Thanks

Tom

Hi Tom

 

I do go out a lot.  I always start in the water at 7:00 am.  That is when the wind is lowest.  If the wind 20 km I stay home.  I have a 14' boat with 20 hp.

I used Mackerel feathers [red/yellow].  I also use my home made mackerel feathers.  No lures just a 2 oz weight at the end of the feathers.

 

Out today with the wife and caught 98 keepers and 15 releasers.

 

Water temp 17 C
