Wahoo Fishing: This is the fastest fish In the Gulf of Mexico. A wahoo can reach speeds up to 60 MPH and can spool a reel in seconds. Wahoo is a prized game fish due to its speed, fighting qualities, and excellent flavor. We fish for Wahoo year round, although, the best months are January, February, March, June, July, and November. There is no limit.
January is usually the best month to fish for monster sized wahoo, this is when we catch our 90+ lbers. and we can catch them in numbers. Having a 10 or more Wahoo day in January is very possible.
The technique we use for fishing Wahoo fishing is Trolling and Live Baiting. Trolling is the preferred method and usually delivers the best results. When they get finicky we live bait hard-tails, bonita, and mullets, depending on the time of year. The rip lines in July are a big producer of smaller wahoo, most in the 20-40lb. Range.
Fish that can also be caught while fishing for Wahoo are Yellowfin tuna, Black Fin Tuna, Mahi Mahi(seasonal), Amberjack (seasonal), and Marlin(seasonal).
