The traditional spring mackerel runs along the coast have been non-existent for years, and sparse during the winter in recent years. However, the Brooklyn VI from Sheepshead Bay found good quantities for jigging  on Saturday — and followed up on Sunday with all large to jumbo mackerel. Herring are also abundant, and that boat is sailing daily at 7 a.m.

West winds gusting to 20 knots are forecast for the morning, but that should be fishable for blackfish boats along the jersey Shore. The Big Mohawk will resume daily trips at 7 a.m.


  1. Al-I remember those mackerel runs and would love to get my boys out to fish in them if we see them pop up again in Jersey Shore waters! Keep us posted if you hear about any more closer to NJ!
