Boat fishing marks in Brixham

Does anyone have some local knowledge?

I'm down in late July and I brashly promised to catch mackerel for the barbecue. Sharkham and Berry Head seem likely. All ideas welcomed!

Just off babbacombe beach is a good place. Pulled about 30 from there last weekend.

Drifting about 250yds from the cliffs.

Was good there last year as well

When I was there a few years ago the Mackerel were coming right in to the harbor and anglers were casting in to the harbor in pursuit. The local Seal population was enjoying them too, for some reason they didn't like the heads as they littered the waterline all along the slipway.

Chuckle. Thanks fellas. Reminds me of a Scillies trip. Crayfish heads... in their holes. No bodies. Mmm
