If you want bonito (not bonita), it'll probably be a few more weeks w/ this cold weather. Spanish are usually a couple weeks after bonito show up- usually when water temp gets close to 70. If you're ok w/ bonita, they're around all year as water temp doesn't matter to them, just follow the birds nearshore.

You guys missed something. I was saying that Bonito (TRUE Atlantic Bonito aka: striped apes- the 1s w/ bigger teeth) usually show up in our area from late March-mid April. Bonita (Little Tunny, false albacore, fat alberts, boneheads) are around all year.
I was just trying to help the guy out. In the future, keep the wisecracks to yourselves.

The Cape Fear Anglers will be meeting on Tuesday, March 21st at 6:30pm at Inlet Watch Yacht Club and Marina, 801 Paoli Court Wilmington, NC. Our guest speaker will be Capt. Jim Sabella of Plan 9 Charters. He will be speaking on "Nearshore Bonito and Flounder in the Spring Months". Capt. Jim is a regular at the Fishermans Post Schools and several others and has been our well received guest speaker previously on a variety of subjects. Jim's knowledge of the nearshore waters of the Cape Fear Region is second to none as that is a specialty of his charters. Dinner will have an Italian flavor and will be catered by Antonio's.

Check this out with Capt. Jim Sabella .......ICM
