With so much seaweed around it is hard not to get locked in on catching mahi-mahi. Everybody is trolling around for mahi and forgetting about what lies below.
If you stumble across supersize weed patches or floating debris such as wood or rope don't forget about the wahoo. When you approach these patches and debris the wahoo sense you coming and sink down sometimes 100 feet.
Be prepared to troll a #6 planer with a spoon on the back by the debris at around 6-8 knots. Fish the planer 100 feet behind the boat. The planer will bring the spoon down deep where the wahoo are.
Pictured here is Nick Noon(center) who is our manager at the shop and two of his buddies with several small wahoo caught underneath a piece of palm tree earlier in the week.
Small wahoo are great eating.
