Default NB 12/6

Bonita were running so close toshore I wanted to jump and grab me a couple....they were schooling (6/10 at the time) in les than 10" of water....was a really cool sight/ Kids had a great time chasing them up and down the beach.Hooked one ...20 secods later broke me off.. ( 12lb mono no leader on the only 1oz white bucktail i had)....they were running so close I wish I hadanet. Went back home all wired up.. 10 mnts later got a call from a friend asking me if I wanted to go for some pompano...guess what....I did....so back to the beach .....this time I was loaded,but no bonita anywhere. oh well !!!set the othertwo rods... friendput 4. We pulled 8 pompanos on dead shrimp. Most of them were small , but legal, I'd say . Two were 16" +.

i saw a guy a t the east end..he was pulling one after another i could tell from the distance....he would grab the rod and walk back about60+ feet and started reeling them out....I saw him doing that at least6 times....The bonita were cool to watch that close ....you could almost step on them.

Nice report. The bonito were literally on the sand as it washed up in PCola as well. I guess I got lucky with the first one I caught with a Gotcha! tied directly to my 12lb fluro test but after getting broke off on the second one, I used a lure with a swivel

i've caught several off the pier with a white jig tied straight to 4# test.... light drags are the key here, and let them run and wear themselves out...

i'm going to try to catch one on 2# test this year.... i hope.

I caught a couple on 4# last year, not an easy task for sure. Good luck with the 2#, that'll be something to brag about.

Yeah, 4# is a beating. I usually just stick to 8#.
