First Inshore Bonito Reported!
July 30, 2010
A photo and caption in the Martha’s Vineyard Times reveals that an 8-pound bonito was taken in Vineyard Sound on Tuesday, July 27.
The fish was taken by 11-year-old Eli Fournier. This is very early for bonito to be showing in New England’s inshore waters, but may be a result of the unusually warm water temperatures this season. At any rate, anglers aren’t complaining.
