My advice is if caught watch those teeth m8.
Oxwich is good, as you approach Oxwich fish to the left in front of the rock face. i dont have the GPS to hand but you will know when you are on it m8.
Macky fillet or even a live one will entice a take hook well through mouth and through stomach use some eleastic cotton or a band.
Set clutch well cause they do hit hard.
6/0-10/0 hooks on 250 mono crimped do the job for me but a gain watch those teeth.
Long disgorger i mean about 2 ft long m8.
good fun on 20lb class rod though

thanks again,i think i,ve seen them fishing there before, i sometimes fish off the shore on the rocky outcrop there, next to holy wash (pebbly beach) i think it was lady helen i,ve been told the best place to get mackerel is try drifting by the swigg buouy ive got an improvised pump to keep them live and i need to make up a rubby dubby mix and tie it to the anchor?is that right or can i get away with fillets of mackerel ?

You can try Rubby dubby but just palin fillets do the job or even a live one. Crab bait will show some nice hounds there as well m8

Tips you may or may not know

Rubby dubby, use mashed up makerel and sandeel if you can get it, add some pure fishmeal instead of bran cost about £18 for 25kg at local farmers co-op, add some cod liver oil also at farmers co-op £11 for 1 gallon these items are expensive but should last a whole season and well worth the effort.

Traces; I use black&decker strimmer wire (blueish mono type) IMO it's better than heavy mono and knots lovely. Use barbless hooks (common sense)

Bait; I like to use just the head and a little of the body cut at an angle, or if I can get them live joeys. Also any live gurnard, bream, whiting, poorcod, dab that I can catch.

Finaly hit them quick, there is no need to let them run for ages before setting the hook, especially with small baits.

Best of with it, hope you get into them as well as we have.
