We had massive schools of mackerel and and bait fish around the boat

Our RedBalloon team did well with a box of mackerel, a few tarwhine and sweep. Mackerel are found in waters of southern half of Australia but are also found throughout the Western Pacific Ocean, Hawaii and the eastern Pacific.

Juveniles and small adult fish usually inhabit inshore waters, while larger adult fish form schools in 40-200m of water over the continental shelf.

They spawn in summer. Blue Mackerel is very good smoked or filleted and pan fried.
