after reading the article on here about lobster potting I bought a pot and decided to try and salt my own mackeral for bait as mike says but instead of using a briney solution my fish are literally enveloped in salt, i can see in the container that liquid is being drawn from the fish but as the fish are not brining will they still be any good if i leave them like this or are they gonna rot anyway ?


cheers

hi Spike666, what i do with mine is fillet the mackrel salt the flesh side and store the fillet's in a tub, the flesh really firm's up and after a while it turn's yellow good bait for the dog's and huss down my way they call it hooch. It have been banned from a lot of shore fishing comp's

I salt my mackerel down as when you freeze them it makes thme tougher. Its just something personal i prefer to do if using the mackerel for tipping off for latties or whiting.
