Captain's Corner: Let kids go after macks

What's hot: Fishing has been good for multiple species, including Spanish mackerel, large trout, redfish and the occasional cobia. Macks have been extremely cooperative and are larger on average than in the past few years. They are relatively easy to catch, making them an ideal species for kids to target. Most school systems are finished for the summer, and there are plenty of eager kids ready to go fishing.

Tip: Chum blocks can enhance fish activity. The smelly, frozen concoction attracts mackerel, and species such as sharks and cobia occasionally come by for a whiff. Never forget about the chum remnants. One of those bags in a boat hatch for a day or two in the heat can be really disgusting to clean up.
