It was a beautiful sunrise in Atlantic Beach, NC before we headed out. Couldn’t really ask for a nicer morning.
We got out there and saw a cloud of birds diving before we even got to the spot.
This ended up being the biggest bonito I have caught. He was a determined fighter and resisted me all the way to the boat, even after several nice long runs. I’m saying 8 pounds. This one joined us at home that evening after a visit to my grill and a bath in lemon butter.
