Mo Big Bonz...

Got a biggie today!
Not a soul out there fishing, except Greg on the South side of the canyon catching sharks...





Best one of this season...28" and 8.8lbs...

I thought a Sea Lion had stolen a little guy, it was pulling so hard...! Great fight and it should be some excellent sashimi...!
Lots of small 2 to 3 pound fish today...

I should have been there

I got lazy. Kayak on the roof, programmed my FF with my target spots and decided to stay home.

Those bones make great lobster bait!

Confused about location - LJ canyon? and a dock? ...don't know of such combination.
Asking because I love to catch (and eat) bonito.

OTOH, here is what the spoiled fishermen in the Caribbean do with them - a shame:

I think it's great that they are so abundant, that they get thrown back. That fish is not of the same good caliber of table fare as a Pacific Bonito which has much lighter colored flesh and a milder flavor.

If SE Florida, most anglers refer to Little Tunny as Bonito, which is in the Tuna family while Bonito is in the Mackerel. Little Tunny are most often thrown back, or cut up as strip baits as many fish love to eat them. The meat is super strong in comparison to all other Tunas, reminds me of a pacific skipjack. Once in awhile we catch Atlantic Bonito which is similar in table fare to the Pacific counterpart.
