The macks are hot and heavy around the shoals. Get a chum bucket, empty it into a net bag, hang it over the side and wait for them to show up. Best bet is to find a hump that comes up to 50 feet with 120 feet around it. If the macks don't show up in about 30 minutes pull in the bag and go to another hump. If you see one mack then don't move.

We had 3 people in the boat. Sabicchi rigs and mack jigs. Fished from the bottom to middle to within a few feet of the surface. At one point I could see a few hundred macks around my jig which was only down about 2 fee right near the boat.
