That's brilliant. All the Mackerel fishing I've ever done I've never seen a shoal so close to shore. Nice one.

Never mind the phone, what about the rod ?

Never mind a rod, I reckon it would have been hard to miss one or two with a toasting fork. (And the previous day, whitebait had been just throwing themselves onto the sandy beach).

Ended up being given 20 odd, on a day I had no fridge or freezer space, and offered more the next day.

I drove 250 miles today to try and get a picture of a Hobby (I did) but I think 150 miles for a bag of Mackerel would have been a better use of time, Fresh out of the sea on a BBQ or in a pan with a bit of butter, YUM. Kent here we come, I can tell by the pebbles where to start.

Not sure you'd need one. Wade in up to your ankles and just kick them up onto the beach. 😄

Or dive in head first, naked and open mouthed like a pink dolphin.

Yep Camber side. Never seen them so close in and lived here 28 years. Old boy I know says he remembers once seeing whitebait, followed by mackerel, followed by dolphins.

Years ago a massive shoal came in ahead of a storm after the whitebait, and they were jumping on the beach in their thousand. People were walking across the South beach in Tenby collecting them by the bag full.

Used to know it as Dengemarsh Beach, 4 of us camped on the beach for 3 nights in October 1977. Fcuking cold was an understatement, couldn't get warm at all so no real kip, ended up shattered but I did get an 8lb cod biggest fish of the session.
