What do you think this Went Savage on the BONITO!! video?
serious editors block these days, so many videos to edit but so little time. This one is from last week, something different, a great day of Bonito Fishing in the Big Jamaica out of Brielle NJ. There was no catch and release this day, as the bonito are a highly prized food fish and there is no limit or regulation on them, in order to maximize the eating experience with these fish, you must bleed them out, it is a good sushi grade fish which is delicious both raw or cooked.
The boat drifted and chummed and instantly had a school of bonito to the surface, I started filming after about 40 minutes of fishing after the bite got a little silly. This was the best Bonito fishing the Jamaica has seen since their start in 1977, I do not know much about this fishery considering I do not get out on boats often, but as far as surf fishing goes, catching a single bonito from shore is very tough anywhere here on the eastern seaboard. For 2 hours in the morning every drop down resulted in a bite from a bonito. Later in the day the chub mackerel moved in a little thicker, and by the end of the day we were getting very few bonito and mostly all bluefish and chub macks, a good mixed bag of fish.
