I figured we need to get this up before the bonito and alberts show.............

 

I'm sure Albacized is as anxious as I am - Looking forward to the speedsters!

Earliest I've ever hooked a bonito was 4th of July weekend off of the Island Queen jetty in Oak Bluffs, MA. That particular year (many moons ago) was a very hot spring/summer. I'll take a guess that we don't see the first bones this year for a month or so. This was a super cold spring, I feel we've been about a month or so behind so far temperature wise, albeit a correctable factor (with some sustained heatwaves).

Guy at my marina (falmouth inner) supposedly got a bonito over by nomans/ squiby trolling Sunday.  I did not see the fish but he seemed as genuinely surprised as me.  I even pressed him a little, and described a bonito to him.  He said yea he knew what they looked like and the day was slow but got 1 bone, no reason to lie.  Hopefully its a sign of good things to come!

My girlfriend and I took a Spanish tapas cooking class over the winter. One of the small plates we made used Spanish bonito. It was delicious. 

 

I'd love to catch some bonito this season. However, I fish primarily from shore so I don't know how easy they are to get from the beach. I know albie can frequently be caught from shore.
