Smoked Mackerel

Fish Prep
Fish on boat

First on a warm summer’s evening, I went fishing with my uncle Padraic and my family. The boat we went fishing in was called the Jackie May. We were hoping to get some mackerel for our tea. We caught twenty mackerel. My uncle gutted the fish on the boat and me and my cousin threw the guts to the seagulls. Then we smoked the mackerel on the pier. The End.
