When I was a kid you could only get slimy Mack's and yellowtail at e-shed and ammo dump, now it's just dominated by scaly mackerel.

There was a quick run of them for 1 or 2 nights at the rocko jetties about a month ago, other than that, very rare to encounter them these days

 got a bag limit one night last year in the boat and i really enjoyed it, better than the snapper i was after. Used to get the 40cm ones off the reef platforms in the northern suburbs. And on the light gear after a tailor session was a great way to end the morning.
