Now! I’ve always caught mackerel in May for bait when I use to chunk almost exclusively. By Memorial Day my freezer was stocked and ready. All by shore.

^^^ AND many swear that Moon Jellyfish are a good indicator of macks.  Well, they're around, something I haven't seen a few years...

I've been catching them. They are around midcoast,  but spotty. And all perfect live bait size spikes about 6"... which is disappointing because Macs are hands down the best fish to eat around here on the grill, sauteed, smoked, made into burgers.

Mack burgers?? Sounds killer. We did some ceviche last year with them that was amazing

Follow this recipe subbing in Mac meat for Bluefish. You can vary the ratio of bread crumbs to meat to preference. A little labor intensive but seriously good eats.
