    Fyi bonito are full of eggs. Loaded with eggs. Might be worth letting them swim if you get a bunch of them

    I was looking at schools of bonito on my up and down yesterday around Pt Loma that would not bite. Got this Sandy on the Whistler Buoy, wonder if these are Bonito eggs?

    Those are actually called pyrosomes. I've caught alot of rockfish that have those in their mouths. They're free floating colonial tunicates.

    I researched pyrosomes and they do seem similar. These were very sticky very firm heavy clumps of round egg like jelly's. They did not have a nucleolus developed so I was not sure they were eggs.

    Yep, these are alot smaller than alot of the ones you see online but they are most definitely pyrosomes.

    Thanks. You should have seen his face when I showed him how we buy bait.

    All I know is that photos can be VERY misleading, looking way bigger, or way smaller, than they are. Maybe he weighed it, don't really know.

    Looks like you matched the hatch of whatever those things are. If those are bonita eggs there's some kinky stuff going on down there.
