this time of year the best option for bonito are white pompano and bucktail jigs from 1/2 ounce to 1 ounce



12 lb test will be just fine....some guys out on the pier go as low as 4 and 6 and bring them in...but 12 will give you a little headway around the pilons



good luck

yes, a pompano jig or spoon is great for bonita. Throw it out and reel it back fast.

Try the pier, AM hours
