Stud Hoo 3/23

I was supposed to work today...but i had some friends in town from Georgia and they wanted to fish and drink on the boat today. They twisted my arm and we headed to south beach last night for some sinning ;-) After getting tore down and waking up at the crack of 11, we woke up and saw how sick the weather was, loaded the boat and headed east!!!

Found some small dolphin in about 500ft, caught a few for dinner and kept heading east. We thougt about heading to bimini, but we already had fish on board and the day was still young!! Around 1pm slow trolling a mix of lures and ballys the right long gets smoked!!! Fish wasn't jumping so i had a feeling it was a nice wahoo. After about 15 minutes of tug and war...this was our reward!!! First nice hoo i've landed locally in awhile...we were all stoked!!


I'm off all week starting are gonna die this week!!!

    Awesome catch! Congrats, heard you on ch8 talking to another boat about your Wahoo Sunday.

    I tried trolling for them for a couple hours in the AM before we set up inshore for Yellowtails.
    Went from 50 feet out to 800 with a high speed Braid Bonito on a heavy drail. Tried from 8 mph on up to 15 mph, straight troll, zig zag....nothing worked, no hits again. :(

    Still looking for my first local Wahoo on my own boat down here, any tips you could pass on specifically for targeting Hoos?

    By the way, looking at the pic again, was just wondering what are the two blue plastic drums on the transom for?

    Its my buddys boat…he's the king of afro engineering!! They are live wells, he tuna fishes in the bahamas a lot this time of the year and believes you can never have enough live bait when tuna That boat has about 300 gallons of live well space on it!

    The fish was caught under a couple frigate birds 30 miles out…we hooked a couple small skipjacks in the same area, i think the hoo's were eating those small skippies. We were hoping for more than one…no luck!!
