Mackerel off the Hook.

Post by wayland on Tue Oct 03, 2017 9:56 am

By and large its been a disappointing season off the Hook co Wexford. We have been out a few times and although I have enough fish to process, it has not been good. The last trip we were about four miles out and the finder was mostly blank. Even the Pollock was scarce. Total haul was two Mackerel and two Pollock. This was divided by three Rolling Eyes . So whats happened to them. Last year we would fill the boat in no time. Ho Hum.

Any idea why Wayland? Have you spoken to other fisherman are they having similar problems? Don't know if it's any different up this way, I will have to ask around.

the last time we had this problem, it was due to the chinese trawler up of the coast of iceland, taking the mack by the ton. That was the last time I was able to go fishing a number of years ago

Interesting Monst. My neighbors sister lives in Iceland and she reports that Mackerel have been landed by the hundreds of tons there. Maybe they migrated further north this year for some reason.Crying or Very sad

We had our first trip out off Hook Head. I know its a bit early for the Mackerel run but we got two and a rake of Pollock.

Where are the Mak`s? Very scarce this year. I hope this is not a trend with another species under threat. Still Pollack and Cod etc but only a couple of Mackerel per trip.
