Thanks guys! The two smaller fish that I got were on my go to white/chartreuse spinner but that big one was caught on a fly lined live shad on 6# line and an ultralight rod.
I almost never fish live bait but the post spawn lmb bite can be tought out here. The fish get lockjaw and sometimes you just have to put crack in front of them   :D

Heres video after I hooked it. I was fishing with my buddy  Rich

I haven't go fishing in years. But spent three weeks in my homeland up north (it's been a while since I had proper holidays!) One of my sisters and I went fishing almost daily. I think the old bug is biting again. Just a few days back home and eager to go fishing again.

It was mostly horse mackerel, loads of chub mackerel and some varieties of seabream in the low activity mackerel periods (for some reason, at least in that area, where you find horse m, there's chub m. around too). Horse mackerel gets active at night. They use come up close to the surface to eat, but when they're not active even all along the night, chub mackerel seems hungry at all times.   ;)

It's curious that those two spices are called mackerel in English. Here we call them different and consider the so called horse mackerel not a mackerel at all. Just a distant relative.

BTW, anyone kayak fishing at sea around here? My sister and I are kicking around the idea of getting a pair for the next summer.

Haven't fished from a kayak or conoe since leaving Minnesota - Lake Superior not exactly the ocean.

Do need to get something like a jon boat though. Clear the shore a bit and start hauling in the 5 lb or better bass.

Interesting. Similar flat-bottom and flat-ends kinda jon boats were once popular boats amongst fishermen in my area to fish inside the inner waters of the galician rias. They were called "chalana". You don't see them often there days. Well, most old fishermen's boat types have almost disappeared, actually. There's a small movement in Galicia trying to recover traditional boats. But still not a big thing  unlike the east coast were these kind of initiatives are much bigger, popular and successful.
