Bonefish love squid and are all over the sand bar in kaneohe bay. The best type fishing for bonefish with squid is to bottom fish. <><

Bonefish love beef in almost any form...I've had the most luck with ribeye chunks. Use a bottom fishing rig and a leader w/ 3/0 - 5/0 circle hook and fish the shallows (3-5 ft deep).
