This time of the year mackerel go nuts off the coast. My favorite is live chumming these fish. Find some structure, it can be a bridge, wreck, or ledge. Anchor up and start chumming. Take your greenbacks and crush their backs, two to three at a time, and toss them behind the boat. Tackle wise I like to start off with 40lb flouro and a long shank hook. Once they get fired up I will switch it up to wire so we don't loose as many hooks. This time of year it is easy to get limits along Anna Maria Island. Captain Philip Watson Just Kickin Back Charters
