Where are the mackerel? Been checking the reports every week but nothing! Is this due to the mild winter? Anyone have any idea when they should be showing in concentration?? And which party boats will be targeting them? Thanks!!
The Macks should be shoiwing up before the end of Janurary. They're late because of the mild weather that we were having, but now that the temps have dropped, the ocean temp is cooming down, which should have them on their way.
As to which boats are going to be targeting them, I'm not sure about in NY, but in Jersey most boats out of Belmar and Manasquan should be targeting them. A few boats out of the Atlantic Highlands should also be targeting them...even more, depending how close the macks come in.
I'm guessing that on LI, at least a boat or two should be sailing form each port for Macks.
Hope any of this helps....although it probably won't...lol.

My friend fished mackerel today with Nighthawk in Belmar, N.J. and it took more than 1 1/2 hour to get there ( several miles east of Ambrose Tower).
