a bit of a break in the weather today so made the most of it...
fished near Holywell / Newquay...
0300 > 0800 off rocks...and 1600 > 2100 near the beach with Grylls...
ledgerd live + frozen sandeel.....
weather and the sea state was winter like....( its a joke a )
not sure what the mackerel were on....
but they were manic...everywhere...at all depths...and up to all sorts...
nothing else had a look in...
managed to flick 99% of them off the hook and back in...

pics are Grylls
...................a sandeel
.............................a mackerel
