Chris Junda fished the area around the Bonito Bar last Tuesday. They were fortunate enough to catch 6 fish blind casting along the edge of the shoals. There were a few small bluefish mixed in but it wasn’t too bad. The fish were in the 4-5 pound range and the lure of choice for Chris and company was the 7/8 oz Pink Epoxy Jig.
