Caught on the return from this year's HMR off-shore race...

36" King Mackerel


50" King Mackerel


First one on a dolphin rig, bigger one on a silver lure to match the small fish that were jumping from a feeding frenzy. 2 rods in holders off the stern rail while sailing at 6 knots.

Worked it exactly as tempest laid out above.

Good times. And super tasty fish.

I will probably get a few weights of different sizes for my cruising. Attaching a lighter monofil from the swivel on the downrigger to the swivel on the lure line gives it a break away from the down rigger. Theory says I shouldn't loose too many fishies. Not wanting to go trophy for sure as it is A LONG WAY UP to the deck.

@smackdaddy nice fish. We call them "smokers" for long runs and good cooking.

Can you explain a bit more how you use that slip not rig? I can't visualize it by looking at it.
