Offshore Cudjoe Yesterday p2
Decided we would do the same thing as last time, but instead of deep dropping we would try drifting in around 200 because we couldn't make much happen on the reef recently. Marked lots of fish on the bottom, but couldn't manage a bite:huh ended up leaving that and going to eat lunch and regroup over by american shoal. After that ran out to about 150 and found a flew flocks of birds. Bonitos, bonitos, bonitos, and more bonitos. We just couldn't get away from them. We ran out to 250, found frigates, more bonitos. Ran to 450, finally found something worth trying. Another flock of birds, ended up with 2 blackfin and a bonito. Then ran out to 700, and on the way there in a depth I don't remember we found a few more bonitos. Found a scattered weedline in 700 that didn't produce anything but a massive school of filefish and lots of clearing lines. On our way back, we raced a boat to another flock, they only got bonitos. Finally, we found one more flock to ourselves, and low and behold, a triple header on bonitos :banghead . Ended up putting 5 in the box. and letting the rest go.Bonitos are fun, but eventually just get annoying, and you can only keep so much bait. Is there anything that we're doing wrong here? Or was the ocean just full of bonitos yesterday? We trolled a purple and blue chugger, green feather, green and yellow tuna chain, and one down deep for a hoo. We'd also like to find some phins, to we need to go out deeper?
