Default Bonito

We caught these 6.5 lb beauties while anchored up along a shoal on the SW side of Nantucket called the Bonito Bar in August. My daughter caught her first bonito with a 12 lb test casting a Yozuri Crystal Minnow. She fought it for almost 25 minutes. Everytime she got it close it would peal off again on her. It took some encouragement (I got a few "I can't do it Dad") and she stuck with it. When we finally boated it, the other boats around us gave her a nice applause for her hard fought effort. Her goal this year is to catch a legal size Striper as she has only caught schoolies so far.

Hey Mully537,

I agree about the 'priceless pictures', but.....assuming those Eastern Bonito are about the same as a Pacific Bonito (look the same)....You.....EAT them??? The Bonito out here on the west are bloody,oily, rank dark meat......Maybe I have been spoiled by the smell of Halibut and Ling Cod in the deep-fryer.

Not trying to bust your chops. I'm just curious as I can't do dark, oily fish.

Bud

I will admit to not know much about pacific fish, but around here False Albacore (albies) are occassionally (though not often) called "Bonita". Albie's have the consistency you describe. And can easily be confused with Bonito. They also look pretty close to to the average eye.

True Bonito is one of the best tasting fishes I have ever had. they actually have a light flavor for a member of the tuna family..

True Bonito, Sarda Sarda are NOT members of the tuna family.
