Went out at 7am on Thursday 9/27. Trolled at high-speed past the pier. No wahoo love. But the tuna were everywhere from 180' to 300' (didn't go deeper). They were busting all around me. So at 9am I put away the high speed gear and sent back a couple of feathers. Got 2 skippies and a BFT around 20 lbs each.uploadfromtaptalk1348875728023.jpguploadfromtaptalk1348875744172.jpg
Went out again this morning Friday 9/28 at 7:30 am. Went all the way up to the Breakers and back to the pier high-speeding. The wahoo bit half-way between pier and the Breakers in 250'. I ran back in around 10ish.uploadfromtaptalk1348876025610.jpg
There were tuna busting again this morning just not as crazy as the day before.
Sorry it's not an elaborate report... but a scotch on the rocks and smoked fish dip are taking precedence tonight :wink

Seriously, never ate Wahoo?? IMO it will blow away Dolphin and Tuna.. Great yield of meat and more of a challenge to catch..!!
Wahoo all the way!!! Nice job Paul
For sashimi wahoo is wayyyy better than blackfin...
It is really a matter of taste Long. Without offending any wahoo aficionados, a well prepared tuna is delicious. I still believe in bleeding any tuna and icing it well. Also don't let the water hose loose on the tuna at the cleaning table. I honestly only rinse the fillets before preparing to eat under cold sink water that is hardly pouring out of the faucet.
That being said. I like them both about the same with a slight edge to Mr. Hoo.
And my personal favorite this year has been the YFT... maybe because it was my first!
Nice meeting you in person too Jeff.
