The Easiest Fish In the Sea

Mackerel at sunset on Chesil Beach

The light is failing fast and it is already too dark to film. I forget about the camera for a moment and enjoy the sunset and the stray mackerel that I have managed to snag. I am back on Chesil Beach for another chance to throw some feathers, but it has been slow; slow enough for me to fit in an hour or so of wondering if I know anything about catching fish. The wind, tide and light have dropped and finally the Mackerel have decided to put in appearance, my doubts are laid aside maybe I know enough to catch the easiest fish in the sea.


  1. It's rising spring tides this week Paul, so I'm hoping here in Plymouth we'll see a few mackerel show up as it's been quiet past few weeks.

    I've gone on to metal lures instead of feathers now as I'm hoping for maybe something 'bigger' than a mackerel but do sometimes question my knowledge on lure fishing when there isn't much fish to be had lol.
