mackerel and bonito fishing inshore

August 8 2018

Hit the inlet today along with what seemed like every boat fishing the WMO. The first ten miles was crazy with boat traffic/wakes. Everything calmed down nice until we hit the 20 fathom line then thing started to build quickly. Pulled her back and threw out the spread at the 35 mile mark working two big hills looking for a bite. After two hours of nothing and steady 15/20 knot winds I ask the guys if they mind if I head out deeper. After a quick team meeting I’m asked if we could head back shallower to what will hopefully be less wind/waves. After a 11 mile run we set out the baits and start looking. First two bites are those darn toothy wahoo and both baits get cut clean off. Next bite is a 7# mahi and he makes it in the box. The next hour is quiet until I come to an area that I loaded with atlantic bonito as well as king & spanish mackerel. After filling the box with these very tasty fish we head back to the fish cleaners for some processing.
