Thanksgiving Wahoo in the Bahamas

Just got back last night from spending the past two weeks in Nassau and the Exumas. Weather was pretty sporty for most of the trip but we did manage to get some good fishing in a few days. There seemed to be a good bite going on north of Highborne in the Exumas, we nabbed a 31 and 23 pounder and a surprise 22 lb mahi high speeding. Our best day was when we ran 40 miles west of Compass Cay to the Tongue and landed a 66 and 37 in a doubleheader. Most of our trolling was at 12-15 knots. Ill try and upload more pictures, right now only two are going through.

PS if anyone has any tips on how to make a skull mount they would be much appreciated. I saved the head from the big one and I want to give it a shot. Obviously Im not going out to get a beetle colony for one wahoo head but I've heard bits and pieces about boiling the skulls just never anything in detail.
