looking for new spot to fish mackerel from shore in Halifax. My son and I used to fish off an old pier at the mouth of the arm (end of Bluestone road) but it's been bought and there are now security cameras and new fencing up. Can I fish from the wharf/yacht club in Purcells cove? we've been to Dewolfe park, Alderney landing and Fishermans cove in eastern passage but find those are always so busy, it's hard to catch.

I'm looking for a place on the Eastern Shore for mackerel. I tried the Salmon River Bridge (just past Head of Jeddore heading east) from 0900-1100 this morning and saw nothing. There were 4 tinkers left to rot on the shore from someone else fishing yesterday.
I was using a mackerel jig in silver, one in green, one in pink. Nothing.
Hoping to pickup a feather rig this week.

Anyone know of a good spot between Cole harbour and sheet harbour?

Thanks!

Let me know if you hear of any places.
I am looking for somewhere between Eastern Passage and Lawrencetown Beach. Somewhere other than MacCormacks Beach.
