Location: The Hooter, Off Martha's Vineyard
Fish: Atlantic Bonito
i took my 23 foot Scout 235 Sportfish with a 225HP Evinrude ETEC engine and motored out of Green Pond, Falmouth, MA to The Hooter, which is about 6 miles south of the SE tip of Martha's Vineyard. My buddy Mark and myself were trolling as well as casting for these speedy demons in roughly 20-30 feet of water. We were using light spinning tackle( Quantum Boca 40's reel with a med. 7 foot Quantum Boca rods with 12 lb test). I caught 13 and my buddy caught 9 of these speedsters!
