Whether you’re a seasoned fisherman or a beginner, fishing for mackerel is a great way to start your day. Here we explain when the mackerel fishing season for the UK is.
The mackerel fishing season depends on which part of the UK you’re fishing in.
In the south of England, mackerel season begins late spring. In the north of England, the season starts later, around mid Summer.
However, the best time to catch mackerel is from May to June.
The best time to fish for mackerel are dusk and dawn, and make sure it’s high tide. This will give you the highest chance of catching them.
We recommend fishing for these smaller fish in the spring high tides, as mackerel will follow bait fish into the shore.
Firstly, you need a fishing rod that is between 9-10ft in length. It also needs to be able to cast up to 3oz.
Secondly, you need some mackerel feathers and a few lead-free weights. Then, attach the hooks to the end of your line with a blood knot. Attach the lead-free weight to the end of the mackerel feathers. Now you can cast out into the deep water!
