We’re out here today in Cape Cod, on calm waters jigging for mackerel, and we’d like to show you how to catch mackerel.

Primarily, we’re drifting in waters about 70′ deep, though targeting suspended Atlantic mackerel about 30′ to 20′ deep. I’m fishing with a custom rig of a stingnose jigging spoon at the bottom, with two teaser-t’s tied above it.

You can buy already pre-rigged mackerel rigs and they work great to catch mackerel. Though today I wanted to try a slightly different mackerel rig. Both are very effective at catching mackerel.

The technique we’re using is a simple drop and jig technique. The hardest part is getting your line in the target line. A good way is to use a line counter on your reel.

Mackerel tend to move in large schools. So often you’ll go through periods of nothing, then suddenly slam into a frenzy of them. This makes for an exciting day on the water!
