Default Friday AM Bonita, no Kings

I launched from grayton beach at sunrise Friday morning. Pulled around a frozen cigar with duster and a silver/blue ratl trap. Couldn't find bait by the sand bar, later found big schools of hardtails pretty far out, they were chasing something and disturbing the surface of the water.
I had three hits, two on the cigar and one on the artificial. Didn't get a good hook set in the first and lost him quick, the second wrapped around my pedal flipper, slicing into and damaging it, the fish swam free to brag to his friends. Third times a charm and I landed a nice Bonita, released. I'm pretty sure thats what the first two hits were as well. Off the water at 8:30.

I fished Tues-Thursday and only picked up 1 King and a Bonita. Slow week but a good one to be out.

I fished just west of you near Stinkys. No cigar minows. Had one king on and metal leader broke. Must have had a kink in it.
