Well known location for bonito and sometimes school bluefin tuna. Use flies, small soft plastics, small jigs and swimming plugs. Fishes best on days when the wind is light and chop is small. Traditionally, boats will anchor instead of trolling or drifting so more boats can fish at the same time. Snad bars move around, so be very care fishing at the Bonito Bar. Big waves can leave you with no water very easily.
