Spanish Mackerel How many is to many!

Liam and I went out to the shoals again this week. It was a perfect day so we figured the fish would not cooperate. We left from the ramp at Pallarenda and the ride out was perfect. As we arrived we found Malcolm and his Dad already into fish! This was looking good. Liam got his new reel out and set a pilchard and waited. He did not need to wait to long before he landed his first fish. I chased the trevally and mackerel as well on fly. This time I experimented with wire wnd wireless flies. All got eaten and all got eaten above the hook!! It can be very frustrating chasing these fish but eventually I will put it all together. It was a great day and Liam landed 12 spanish mackerel and a large number of trevally. I landed a good number of trevally, a nannagai but no mackerel, perhaps next time.
