There are a few fish that appear in Cape Cod waters that will, by a mere mention, get fishermen jabbering with enthusiasm. Bonito certainly fall into that class. They're easy to talk about and hard to catch. And delicious to eat.

Kevin Blinkoff, of On The Water magazine, joins us to talk bonito basics: what makes these fish so special, and two of the most popular approaches to targeting them, "run-and-gun" and fast trolling. Also, we round up the week's fishing action. It's all in the audio posted below. Give it a listen.
