Mackerel killers

Size doesn't matter.  It's quantity when you take kids out fishing.  Mackerel fishing in the Muscongus Bay can give you the latter.  At the passage between Harbor Island and Black Island, in a spot sheltered a bit from the flood tide, we hit a school of mackerel.  Jigs and mackerel trees were doing the job.  We started off catch and release, but there were casualties, so we switched to catch and eat.- gwc
