I figured now would be a good time for me to share this post with you, because hopefully some of you My Fishing Cape Codders are encountering some bonito out there.
There comes a time in a relationship when you just have to buckle down and go fishing with your spouse. It's inevitable.
Especially for me, because my husband is Ryan Collins, and if you have not already noticed, he lives, breathes, sleeps, eats and dies for fishing.

This trip started out with a beautiful, warm, and sunny Saturday morning boat ride down the canal. It was August on Cape Cod and conditions could not of been any nicer.
I had never been down the canal towards Buzzards Bay before, so there I was, joyfully perched at the bow of the boat snapping away with my camera, thinking of all the Instagram-worthy photos I was taking.
We exited the canal onto a flat calm Buzzards Bay. Instantly I knew I was in it for the long haul.
Ryan and his good fishing buddy Jay were absolutely NOT going home without putting a bonito in the boat. What I soon learned was that come hell or high water, we were going to find those darn bonito.
So now that I've properly set the stage, here are the 4 most important things I learned about bonito fishing on Cape Cod.
