his afternoon I was lucky enough to finally have some time to fish with my Dad (as I have been booked solid). We decided to check out the Bonito scene and search for an afternoon bite.
The water was slick calm without a boat in site, and after several 2-3lb bluefish, my Dad hooked himself a Bonito. Not just any Bonito – easily one of the biggest we’ve landed all season, a good 7-8 pounds. After his long fight on light tackle, we chased some breaking fish until we were hungry for dinner. As the sunset, there were several mother dolphin frolicking with their very young calves – we watched one youngster jump out o the water a half-dozen times. It was gorgeous evening – always great to be able to fish with my dad — He’s the one that taught me to love the sport.
