Tips on Landing a Wahoo Solo
Took my first trip of 2018 this morning. 60 seconds in and one of the lines gets hit slow trolling skirted ballyhoos. Cut the engine and cleared the other lines. As the fish got closer to the boat I realized it was my first wahoo. Got him near the boat and he went on a few runs. I was getting ready to put the rod in the holder to grab the gaff and he ran under the boat and snapped the line. He was a slob and all lit up, looked amazing! Any tips for landing a wahoo solo? I want to be ready when the next opportunity comes up. I've replayed the 2 minutes 100x and keep thinking what I could have done differently to get him in the boat.
