Lots of terns working small bait off the south county beaches. But I couldn't hook anything but small bluefish under the terns.

they seem to really perk up when the sun is out...this weather isn't helping...they were eating juvenile herring the other day so happy to smash bigger baits

Nice. I've been blue-balled with the fly rod three days in a row. Argggghhhhhhhhh. It is, however, what makes them worth targeting.

Launched the boat on Friday to seek out bonito in western Buzzards Bay, had a brief sighting of them once before they sounded, blind casted the area for a while but caught only some large blues instead of bonito.
What I did find in my travels was acres of striped bass feeding on the surface as far as i could see in all directions. They were picky but I still caught and released dozens of them.....looking down into water along side the boat I could see some large ones...like over forty inches.....but the damm schoolies always got to my lure first. I tried weighted rubber jigs to maybe get lower in the water column to no avail.

I have looked at the pics of frigate macs and this fish did not have the same mac patterning. Rather it had broken horizontal lines that made up vertical stripe pattern.

Do you guys have better luck casting for bones or trolling? Still looking for my first. Seemed to have had plenty of shots over the weekend but couldn’t keep the blues and sea bass off the line.

I’ve had plenty of luck with Albert with the run and gun and casting to breaking pods but bones just seem different. Was talking to some guys saying that trolling diving swimmers at 4-6 knots outside pods has been productive for bones and Spanish Mack’s this spring

I use the troll to locate them usually can make a few passes on them and get bit. I have been modifying the lures to single hooks. When two trebles are in them you don’t get a great fight. My preference is to cast to them once located. Nothing like an ultra light bonito battle.
