Q and A: Bonito and Albie Fishing Tips

Question and Answer With Hogy Pro Staff

Question: What’s the best retrieve for bonito and albies?

Answer: Keep tip pointed at or in the water while you retrieve. Reel as fast as possible. When bonito and albies are not breaking, remember to blind cast.

Question: What’s the best leader for bonito and albies?

Tip: Super shy bonito and ablies can be spooked by braided line or even the knot connecting to your leader. We recommend using a flouro/mono blend when targeting these fish. If you are using braid, we recommend 30″ of 20-30lb flourocarbon leader for spooky fish. Tie direct with a loop knot.

Question: I was thinking of trying soft baits for ablies? What size were you using in the video in Buzzards Bay?

Tip: We were using the 7″ Amber Original. It’s absolutely our favorite soft bait for bonito and albies.
