Spanish......where to find them?

Every time we start to go fishing, The Warden asks if we are going to go hunt spanish macks. The answer is always the same....."if we see birds." Well.....most times, we don't see birds.

So how and where can I expect to fairly reliably find spanish macks. I've seen birds diving in the harbor...only caught blues. I've seen birds and bait busting outside the jetties, never got a bite. I've seen birds and bait at 4KI and did catch a few.

Do I need to troll off the beaches? How far, do I need a planer? Basically, when you set off to catch to you do it?
