    Atlantic Bonito around my neck of the woods are mostly considered good for cut bait. They are usually caught in the 3 to 5 pound range. I have found them to make a very good smoked fish jerky and have canned them. I do not every remember seeing one 33 inches long, but then I am not an expert on them either.

      I just remembered that what I call Atlantic bonito are often called striped bonito in my area. There is no class for striped bonito in the Alabama deep sea rodeo so I just call all bonito "Atlantic"
