Mackerel Fishing

Went out fishing in front of our trailer at dusk and caught about 18 mackerel. I stayed out until the mosquitos were biting better than the fish and had a great time catching them on ultra light tackle. Note the rain gear - we were in the middle of a three straight days of heavy rain followed by heavy drizzle.
