Best Time of Year For Mackerel

Hi All,

I'm interested to get a feel for when people think the best time of year for Spanish in the Pilbara is?

I use to live in Wickham a long time ago and my father and I spent plenty of time diving the area in the late 70's and early 80's, I was too young to notice things then!

Word was back then that when the prawning season finished, often the boats would switch to mackerel fishing for a month or so....Estimate of when that was seem to indicate August to October?

While I think this correlates with "the windy season" I think, what are peoples thoughts on when the Spanish are around?
