Kalbarri Mackerel about at the moment

 Does anyone know if there are many mackerel about in Kalbarri yet this year? We are going up there in a month and are looking forward to tangling with a few.

Thought they were coming good, but I was wrong

 I got some weekend before the comp, as did others, then the wind blew hard, swell, dirty water, all the things that stuff them here. If conditions aren't to their liking in the bay, they just head off for bluer pastures. Not there ATM, but feedback I'm getting is that are hard to come by, unfortunately.

 thanks guys. like many years, the number of fish you catch depends on when you are in town. I saw the photos of the classic catches and noticed the lack of mackerel photos.

No tuna and the few macks caught were done so on bottom rigs. Very hard grind.
