Default Bonito help...

Alright, I've had some very frustrating days recently. I've found a spot where the bonito are busting the water pretty consistently for a couple of days. I've tried pulling silver gothca's through them and also a few different 1/4 oz. bomber pompano jigs to no avail. Any other ideas what to use?

Bullet Head pompano jigs, White hair, or pink hair. Jig heads with with gulp grubs on em. gotcha lures normally do the trick

Just curious but why would you want to target Bonito?

X2 , I used to love running schools down and catching them on a fly. Get a hot school and it's awesome....

Thanks everyone for the suggestions. Can't get the pomp jigs or those white hex shaped jigs to work either so I'll give the bubble rig a try, hopefully that'll do the trick.
