Wahoo is rare in these waters but catches a few. They usually connect at 2-4 per year which is in the range of 50-100 pounds. The slender, elongated bodies allow the breastplate to cross the water while feeding. They can grow up to eight feet long and 180 pounds in length and are somewhat similar in appearance to a barracuda and mackerel. Here is more a about Wahoo Fish

Like the barracuda, they have sharp teeth and bite through your line if you do not use the steel leaders. They are also a good tasting fish but are harder to find due to their tendency to travel individually. Visit Los Suenos Fishing for great Wahoo Fishing Trips

Types Of Wahoo Fishing:

Trolling

…will produce more and more consist and wahoo bites than anything and can be done in so many ways. When feeding near the surface, wahoo will boil on top water lures with aggressive bursts of speed that you will not see in other fish. The initial run of a wahoo lets you know for sure that that is what is on the other end of the line and don’t stop there because wahoo don’t ever give up without giving your drag systems a thorough workout.

Live Bait

…fishing for wahoo can be tricky but with good technique can be very effective and has been known to bring many a wahoo to gaff. Do not by any means underestimate these fish! Wahoo must be handled with care from the moment you gaff or leader them to the release or death of the fish, you hear ‘they’ll take your finger off’ about many fish, but a wahoo loose on the deck will take out your achilles in a flash.

Jigging

…wahoo offers them a chance to rip the rod right from your hands as that is how the hit. I often fish a fast retrieve with my jig after working the bottom area and these fast retrieves often pay off with muscle tearing wahoo hits.
