offshore bonito trip

Post by palmbeachpete » Wed May 07, 2008 12:29 pm

I meet Pescar at sunrise. The seas were one foot and the sky's were clear.

It was the first time out with the new kayak. I hooked a bonito on fly in 65 feet of water. It is hard to take a pic when you are hooked on fly, so no pics. I almost had the fish to the kayak when it made a power run. It pulled out 30 more yards and BAM. It looked like a bomb went off. Big king, cuda, or shark had bonito for breakfast. Paddled out to 120 feet and marked fish near the bottom. dropped a jig and bam, fish on.

Dropped again and bam, another bonito

and another.

Then hooked a small jack.

We paddled to the wreak to the north on Lake Worth Pier and we could not hook anything. Slow current. :tongue2:

Hooked one more bonito north of the pier.

We did see a sailfish but he did not want to play with us today. Off the water by 11.00 am. For the first time out the new kayak did great.
