It was like colony's of Africanized Bees

I am not really an offshore fisherman although yesterday was so beautiful so I took a run offshore to find hundreds, thousands of swarming schools of bonito! They were in 30, 40, 50, .........100 feet of water. There was large schools busting the bait everywhere, beautiful sight to see although after catching a dozen or so, I had a mutiny on board. I'm not bringing that fish in, I'm too tired, no you bring it in, not not was exhausting. We finally hit a decent sized black fin in 110 feet, sushi for dinner, needed that good protein to help recover from all the work with the bonitos. Yesterday the blue feather seemed to be the weapon of choice, was hit 9 out of 10 times including some fast runners that excluded capture. Skirted ballyhoo was not in their diet yesterday nor was a cedar plug although the deep diver X-Wrap was the second best choice. I'll try to post the black fin picture although the Forum is not I-Pad friendly.
