Fishing from the rocks at Roaches Point this morning see a boat pulling in mackerel about 300mt out. They were fishing the dropping tide.

Friends were out in their Orkney off Mayo's Downpatrick Head last weekend and pulled in a couple of dozen medium-sized macks. They've beern scarce enough this early in recent years, and usually fairly small, so nice to see the uptick.

Local anglers who braved the winds round Downpatrick Head (the real one in North Mayo!) had a promising few bucketloads last week, but it seems to have gone patchy again this week. Were the shoals just passing by on their way to Iceland for the "summer"?
