I’ve caught Sea Trout in a Scottish sea loch ( Loch Long ) using feathers.
& very tasty they were to.
Catching fish & cooking them on the beach is one of life’s great joys.

Looking at getting a smallish portable smoker, will have to get one that uses the paraffin blocks as opposed to a spirit burner type :thumb:

Filleting Mackerel is an art I haven’t mastered - it’s a complete git ... I always end up taking out bones with a pair of pliers before cooking.
I’ve discovered that it’s probably better to cook them whole & remove the bones as your eating them.

I’ve managed to catch 6 different species using the same lure off the same mark in Cornwall:
Mackerel
Bass
Gar
Pollack
Wrasse ( that was a bloody surprise )
Coalfish
Also saw a Sunfish there once.

Fishing with bait there could also be good, but the Spider crabs are a bloody menace .... caught a couple of those too.

Easy peasy. With Mackerel, I slit down the belly, remove the innards then place it upright on a chopping board. I then use the palm of my hand to push down on the spine and the fish spreads outwards until it is flat on the chopping board. Then pull out the spinal cord along with the attached bones.

Fillet or cook the fish whole. Works every time for me :thumb:
