Hi mate,

Mackerel are suckers for anything small and flashy and as mentioned, ready made feathers and lures with 4 to 6 hooks are a good bet.

If you want to use a bait which can score other fish as well, thus expanding your options, then you should try mackerel strips. Buy a large mackerel or two from a fish mongers or super market (not tackle shop as they cost a lot more!!!)

See this link to a page on this site for mackerel strip preparation - (there's a photo in the middle of the document) -

Once you've looked at this you'll need a rig to bait up, here now is another link, again to a document on this site showing what I feel is the best rig for this type of fishing -

Good luck buddy,
