    Always around even sardines. Baitfish are hard to predict though.

    They are attracted to shiny bald heads.

    The Mackeral were biting on Oceanside pier today. I was about half way up the pier and was using a Sabiki rig, size 6 hooks, tipped with shrimp. They were moving around a bit, but when they came by, everyone using Sabikis were catching multiple at a time. I had 5 on one cast. Wasn't much else biting though.

    Good luck.
