Why Do Anglers Love to Catch Wahoo?

Why Do Anglers Love to Catch Wahoo?
We have had several charters on the "Lisa B" ask why we fish for wahoo so much. Put simply, wahoo is one of the most exciting fish in the ocean when it comes to angling. The bite from this fish is like no other as it screams line off the reel. Wahoo is one of the fastest fish in the ocean and the initial run is crazy grouped with violent head shakes. Wahoo are also swimming in an area mostly around 250 feet of water where other pelagics roam. In that same area we are liable to catch blackfin tuna and sailfish. Lastly, wahoo is by far one of the best eating fish in the ocean. It is super white and mild and is great raw or cooked. Most charters now ask to wahoo fish in the beginning of our charters for a few hours and that is fine with us. 
Most of the week was unfishable because of the rough sea conditions so there is not much to report from offshore. I do know that the back water fishing has been excellent for snook and tarpon around the inlets and the canals. This weekend we are looking forward to some nice weather finally! We will be fishing for sail fish aboard the "Native Son" with Captain Art Sapp on Friday. 
To get an up-to-the-minute fishing report tune in to the Paul Castronovo show on 105.9 Friday mornings at 6:25 AM.
