Bimini Wahoo Fishing

SaltydawgSaltydawg Posts: 1,305 Officer
Looking at heading over in a few weeks, our last trip was canceled due to weather.

Curios is it worth high speed trolling from in front of Bimini south to Riding Rock? What depth should I be looking for?

By the way I may have room for one more if anyone is interested.

Thanks

    I have been getting a few fish of decent size right out front to Gun Cay.

    They should be stacked up, this time of year, on the drop-off. Begin trolling south off south Bimini between 150' - 450' using sub-surface baits and you should have no problem boating a few hoo in short order. Feel free to im me for more specific intell.

    The wahoo are still there.On 1/26/13 we went out for 2 hours and went 2 for 3 on wahoo.The fish were in the 50lb class,nice eatting. Was over the weekend before and went 3 for 5 ,two in the 40lb class and a 60lber. Definitely worth going over. Good luck.

    I just did a trip this past weekend....Weather made it impossible to fish anywhere other than Bimini south to Ocean, but the fish are still there. caught plenty in the 45-65 range and the biggest came right off the Sands on our last day; barely had a chance to throttle up to trolling speed after leaving the inlet. Caught mahi on the high speed troll as well, and only two cudas bothered us the whole four days. Outgoing seeemed to be preferred, but early AM produced as well. There was only one other boat fishing the whole time, they did OK fishing with planers and baits.
