Found a school of bonita, and threw a Gotcha plug at them. They are a fun fight, and they don't taste bad if you bleed them out, cut the blood line out of the fillet, and prepare them like you'd sear ahi tuna.

Here is a video of my son putting a whooping on a Bonita using light tackle. He couldn't have been more proud of his catch, and I couldn't be more proud of him!

I took my son out fishing this afternoon. We tried a bit of shallow water trolling for grouper, but we didn't find any grouper. We did see birds diving, and a bunch of Bonita busting bait. We followed the school around for a while, and we caught quite a few of them. They are fun to catch, and they make some screaming runs, especially on light tackle.

My plan was to troll xraps over the edge of the reef for small Bonita and large blue runners. Then bridal rig them and slow troll out into the blue water for a shot at a sailfish. The wind and swell were a little too much for my comfort in a kayak. So I head back inside the reef. This Bonita found my xrap thru a swarm of triggerfish.

Weather was perfect today to fish in the gulf from the kayak, too bad the fishing wasn't perfect. This was one of only two fish I caught today. I also caught a sub legal king but forgot to get a pic before I threw him back. Sure beats being at work though!

I was trying to stay very close to the beach in hopes of finding a snook. The weather had other plans. I paddled offshore to avoid lightning and rain where I found these guys busting bait on the surface. I managed to get one on an xrap before they all disappeared.
