    IMG_0328.jpg IMG_0383.jpg Fished on the relentless 1.26 at the high spot in collonett. Capt mikey and crew were excellent, but the wind was problematic. Scratchy yellowtail fishing due to fast drifts and too many huge bonito in the way! Hooked half a dozen bones and landed 1 25lb class yellowtail (bag of fillets weighed 10lbs+).

    Excellent deep water rockfishing...huge reds!

    TAKE YOUR HEAVIEST YOYOS! Landed my yellow on a 13 oz hand painted mackerel pattern, but the 26 the boat caught were on every color imaginable.

    Fish were hanging deep...100-150'...only surface action was the big bones (8-15 lbs).

    Red crab everywhere!!!

    H20 was 61°f.

    When bled and iced immediately bonito are just as good as yft seared or as sashimi/sushi!

    After years of passing off or throwing them back, I was on a trip this season where the argument came up. One of the deckhands proceeded to catch a boney, fillet it, throw it on the cooktop with some veggies and teriyaki, and loaded it into a corn tortilla with some salsa. One of the finest fish tacos I’ve ever had.

    SOLID WORK Doug. NIce report and fish..Been there, done those fast drifts there. LOL

    Someone told me Bonito are the #1 seiner catch in Mexico now. The Eastern Block
    countries like Russia, Slovenia, Croatia , to Yugoslavia etc. prefer oily Bonito vs.
    all other tuna, and a huge market for Mexican Fisherman. Tasty when cooked right. LOL

    I don't have the 240 mark in any of the apps I use to find fishing spots I believe the high spot at colonett is at approximately 31.7.209N x 116.25.984. If you make that run on a Saturday it will be obvious if the fleet is there.

    I make them the same way i do yellowfin and bluefin, nust have to not soak or marinade too long as they'll get soft, but are great seared as they firm up.

    Thanks for the answer Doug. I used to fish the 240 from San Quintin and I was wondering if is the same high spot. Used to see the searcher and other San Diego boats fishing that spot. Thanks again.

    Thanks for the post! Beautiful red! I've been eating Bonita for over 50 years. They just keep getting better with care of the catch.

    I'll be on the queen this weekend and this is what I'm bringing. Jigs: Tady 4/0, Salas 7x, JRI 66, and Salas 6x Jr. Not too concerned with color as you are fishing these jigs in 150-300 ft of water. Lots of rods will work but I like a heavy rated 6-7 ft rod. Minimum 50 lb mono with a high retrieve reel, again lots of choices but I do love my old Saltist 40 BG. Hope this helps
