Topic: Mackerel fishing in Cape May? When?

Hey folks -

I heard the last week of December or so is the best time to fish Mackerels around Cape May. is that true? Also, what's your recommendation for a party boat to go fish Mackerel?

Re: Mackerel fishing in Cape May? When?

Don't know any headboats that fish for mackerel any more.   So few come by this time of year and they are so far off that boats do not go for them.   Spring is the same story.   So few and so far off that not worth running for.    The big declines came years back when they did pair trawling and sold millions of pounds to overseas markets.   Stock have never come back.
