Small ones offshore, near the star, so should be soon closer on sand eels.

Yes, bonito found us when tuna-wishing near Gordon's Gully on our way S on Monday so I'm not surprised they are in closer by the hooter. Good news for coastal fishing.

I've heard people catching them in the Newport area, not sure where. Interested if anyone has seen anything around PJ yet?

Big school busting tiny peanut bunker went by us 3 mi or so SE of point Judith (by hooter). Got one cast in, hooked up immediately. Belly stuffed with those peanut bunker, left plenty on the deck. I would say they are in, plan to get out tomorrow around PJ, West Wall, Narragansett beaches, etc. With all the bait, albies will be following in real soon.

Ran into a large school of macks feeding on what looked like peanut bunker off the RI south shore beach. The funny fish should not be far behind.

Sweet
Thanks for the heads up.
Will be vacationing for the week in Falmouth starting Saturday
I will have the boat.
I have never caught a King or Spanish mackerel up here.
Hopefully the forecast doesn't suck anymore than it already does.
Thanks
Joe

I caught 2 bonito yesterday morning at Middle Ground (Vineyard Sound). Both were at slack tide and then nothing when the tide started running.
