Hi John... Moonfish here... here's the alltime secret formula for "mac makin", given to me by a multi record holder of the marlin sect: (1) can mackeral, (3) cans tuna cat food, couple handfulls of oatmeal... mix it all together (the night before if possible) in a small plastic bucket, spoon it out little by little up current so the boat drifts over it, have one guy keep the chum line going... use a dull edge knife (butter knife) to remove the macs if you intend to keep them as live bait... GOOD LUCK!
PS - you can use this same mixture for ANY kind of fish attracting, from perch to yellowtail (yes, yellows) & nearly everything in between!
PSS - if you happen to end up with to many bugs, well...

Chum and then throw a small croc, let it sink then back to the boat thru the water column....

Sabiki's work good too...

Don't forget to tip the hooks with chunks of Mac, they will boil on it, and you'll end up pulling 4-6 mac's at a time on your sabiki!
