Fishing with Rod: Mackerel on Light Tackle

For more fishing videos, please visit: In Ucluelet on Vancouver Island’s West Coast, mackerel make their appearance when warm ocean current surges north during certain years. While these pelagic predators can be bad news to BC’s salmon population, they can be incredibly fun on light tackle when fishing from a pier. Subscribe to go Fishing with Rod!

    Agreed. We usually dispatch our fish immediately but failed to do so in this video, got? too excited. I’ll make a note about it when we do the gear talk segment for this video. Cheers.

    Great halibut bait!

    Disappointed to see the fish aren’t? being bonked though. If you’re gonna keep it, bonk it.

    We used what the regulations allow? us to in this region, which is only one hook per line.
