  2. Yianni Komniny on October 18, 2020 at 4:15 pm

    G day from Australia

  3. Mr Sture on October 18, 2020 at 4:15 pm

    I caught a really big one yesterday it was probably about 1,7 kg

  4. Derek Harding on October 18, 2020 at 4:15 pm

    I make my own whipping the shiny side of a crisp packet onto the hook and the tying a palomar knot onto a main leader. Costs nothing and they are deadly on shoal fish even out here in Australia. Love the nail varnish tip, might try that on my bigger feathers I use on the reefs. Cheers.

  5. Luke Colwell on October 18, 2020 at 4:19 pm

  13. That random white guy on October 18, 2020 at 4:25 pm

    Hello everybody! Good afternoon, I was wondering if theirs a flavor difference between pacific mackerel and Atlantic mackerel.

  14. barleyarrish on October 18, 2020 at 4:26 pm

    Have you ever used the sand eel snagging rig? a series or trebble hooks tied up a piece of line.
    when the sandeels are about you just cast through them and retrieve, you can quickly amass a
    lot of fresh bait.

  15. Max Williams on October 18, 2020 at 4:26 pm

    Heya TAF, to make sure you close ups are always in focus matey, try positioning the camera further away, focus in on the area your hands will be then do the tights, the closer your camera is to a moving object the harder it will be for a feature like auto focus to get the right picture. (Just trying to help, LOVE your channel)

  16. Rick Biscuits on October 18, 2020 at 4:27 pm

    Where can I get some of that chinese groundbait?

  17. Isaac Pugh on October 18, 2020 at 4:35 pm

    When would you say is the end of mackerel fishing season?

  18. Suellen Gonçalves - Pesca Esportiva on October 18, 2020 at 4:35 pm

  23. Silent Autumn on October 18, 2020 at 4:40 pm

    This dude gets a fish on a paper, and here am i on the shore with 3 poles and getting nothing even with a live bait xD f

  24. Derek Jefferson on October 18, 2020 at 4:43 pm

    Hi Graham
    When I was younger, I use to make mackerel “feathers” by taking a long shank Aberdeen type hook, buy 12” strips of white rawplug, cut to length of shank and place over same. I caught fish, when no one else was catching due to the white strip being the same length of the hook, not as some bought type feathers were the feather is too long – cheapto make as well
    Enjoy your longer videos. Cheers

  25. Seana Clougher on October 18, 2020 at 4:43 pm

    Please only handle the mackerel you keep…
    Handling destroys their coating… try to twist em off the hooks rather than hold them… otherwise they die within a few weeks after handling..
    Great video though. Many thanx

  26. shoopwhoopX on October 18, 2020 at 4:44 pm

    put your flashers more forward, the will bite the tails and miss the hook or tear them off.

  27. JOE on October 18, 2020 at 4:47 pm

    Noooo dont put it back

  28. Rory Wood on October 18, 2020 at 4:47 pm

    Long cast here 😉 but does anyone have any experience fishing from Southport pier?

  29. Daniel Larmour on October 18, 2020 at 4:49 pm

    For the sake of 2 quid just go and buy new feathers

  30. Millers Landing on October 18, 2020 at 4:50 pm


  31. phil fish on October 18, 2020 at 4:51 pm

    good bit of sport. thanks G

  32. Trojs Fishing on October 18, 2020 at 4:51 pm

    There has be quite a few Atlantic Chub Mackerel around down our way this year

  33. Nilson's Bleep on October 18, 2020 at 4:53 pm

    I like this guy. If had Jaws on the line I’d like him to be around to talk softly to me. He knows more about fishing than you or I. One time I was snorkelling in St Lucia just off a beach. Locals were fishing from a break-water. I saw a fish with a hook in it’s mouth, trailing some line. I felt sad. I managed to catch it. I took the hook out under a palm tree, drinking a mango cocktail. It died but I looked out on that beautiful view and, with the slight alcohol buzz, I felt like God. I gave the fish’s corpse to a drinks waiter. He went and threw it in the garbage. For a while I was a hero/fisherman/drunk. A heady combination that this guy in the video – but not you – will understand.

  34. colin miller on October 18, 2020 at 4:53 pm

    A good tip for sharpening your knife if you forget or haven’t got a sharpener is to carefully run your knife across the top of your car window a few times. It really works!. P.S. Make sure the window is open.

  35. Kamron Aston 2512 on October 18, 2020 at 4:55 pm

    I just bought a mackerel float rig

  36. Ian Miller on October 18, 2020 at 4:56 pm

    i love my freshwater fishing but must say i love summer and yr sea fishing video best, theres just something about the sea just wish i went more often.

  37. Fraser McAllister fishing on October 18, 2020 at 4:58 pm

    Cracking video Graham watched it whn I was making the dinner you are a wealth of knowledge love all your tips and tricks keep up the great videos.tight lines

  38. James Curtler on October 18, 2020 at 5:00 pm

    Where about do you fish?

  39. Applecake on October 18, 2020 at 5:01 pm

    *try shiny sequins 3 or so spaces with line stops or beads cheap and easy to make and they work well for mackerel*

    *I have even just put them over the hook bend and they still work great and stay on*

  40. danebrewer10 on October 18, 2020 at 5:02 pm

    Or, just don’t bother buggering around with flashy tape for the sake of a couple of pennies and buy another sabiki rig when the hooks get all janky 😄

  41. Rik M on October 18, 2020 at 5:03 pm

    Hardly any mackerel this Summer on the NW coast of England

  42. The Pound Hound. on October 18, 2020 at 5:03 pm

    Who does your music….??????

  43. Zlatko P. on October 18, 2020 at 5:05 pm

    You can’t catch and release a mackerel! You can but in 24h max will die anyway! You should know that

  44. olly smith on October 18, 2020 at 5:05 pm

    I use crisp packets they work a treat to redo feathers

  45. James Wallace on October 18, 2020 at 5:07 pm

    I read the other day that if you handle mackerel even lightly that they are doomed to die within 48hours. Crazy fact but it’s been well looked into as far as I can tell. Maybe that mackerel you returned wasn’t the luckiest hahaha. He looked like a nice eating size too!

  46. aeronuts on October 18, 2020 at 5:07 pm

    Hi, would you please tell me where can I purchase the powder you use at 13:47?

  47. Hamid Baaoui on October 18, 2020 at 5:09 pm

    One can never have enough of catching mackrel. The bite and the action are quite addictive.

  48. Mark Harder on October 18, 2020 at 5:13 pm

    Love watching your videos. Always learn something new. I’m very envious. Fish from shore. Boat one day. Keep inspiring us. Cheers.👍

  49. Simona Lileikyte on October 18, 2020 at 5:13 pm

    I’m sure you can use Christmas tree decorations for this too

  50. Haneix on October 18, 2020 at 5:14 pm

    Great tips, love making homemade feathers makes me feel like I put in the effort to catch and cook the fish, eating fresh mackerel right now, I have a great mark with my kayak at my local harbour and it’s teeming with them, it’s really nice to see as there have been none for ages, they range from a few ounces to a pound, great to see big ones and small ones, too often it is only wee joeys. Thanks for the video Graham, love adding little tips to my noggin.
