Fished after my last day of school at avila for a few hours.

Managed to catch about 10 or so mackerel and got one good hit on a bigger rod.

Fished from 8pm-12am.

The macks were there in force but we weren't fishing for them very hard... but they were busting surface eating bait fish all night.

Things are finally picking up!

Mackerel is good to eat. I grill/broil the freshly caught ones. But if it's frozen already, then frying or baking is my way to cook it. There are canned mackerel (in tomato sauce or in oil) sold in the groceries, too. Or try some Japanese or Korean sit down restaurant...they offer grilled mackerel in their menu. Just an idea.

I also love mackerel. To me, soy sauce is the magic ingredient that makes mackerel sweet and tender. I either fry, smoke, or broil the fillets, but will try poaching like the video suggests.

Great vid, gotta try some of those ideas soon. I always smoke mackerel after curing them in salt and brown sugar for a day (I think it helps with the strong flavor). I've also noticed that the macs I get in SoCal taste much stronger than the ones I eat from Monterey and SF area piers. Is this because of the water temperature or something? Has anyone else noticed this?

They are pretty good to eat. A bit strong and very oily. These two reasons are why I choose to use the fish for shark bait instead of consumption. The poaching mackerel video is good or as a buddy once suggested, pan fry macks of bonito in hot oil with just salt and pepper. Turns out delicious.

It's funny to cook fish for my older family memebers who grew up teaching me that bonito and mackerel were not good to eat. If we only knew.

Anyone got a CA lizzard fish receipe? Smile
