When do they start appearing and can be caught at the pier/wharf, please?

Friends got many mackerel during mid-week last week at Pointe-du-Chene wharf.

I went yesterday with a friend and spent all day there hoping to hook up with them.

We never caught a one...and saw only maybe 20 caught all day from 9:30 am to 5:30 pm.

The tide was going out during those times...maybe that was why so few were caught.

But also there were large numbers of minnows in the area and maybe that was why the mackerel didn't bite anyone's rigs.

 

I'll go back again, but try an incoming tide then.

Sealdaddy I only see people using mackerel rigs. From what what I hear they are catching them now. I’m not sure on the tides when I go I just make a day of it.
