Tackle Recommendations For Wahoo:

There are a few different ways to target wahoo. Each way requires slightly different tackle. 

1) High Speed Trolling -  This works well if you have a good drop off that you can troll around, this can be a ledge, or a volcanic island.  The reason it works so well is it will allow you to cover a lot of ground as well as to weed out any fish cannot swim that fast. This is a highly selective way of catching wahoo that will usually yield you a wahoo or a barracuda, but not much else. 


2) Planar Fishing  Around Floatsum - Fishing planers around floatsum is a great way to pick up wahoo that are in open water and checking out baitfish from below.  


  • 50 -80Lb Class Reels
  • 50 feet of 80Lb Mono
  • Spool filled with 80Lb braid

3) Vertical Jigging Under Floatsum - When you find a floating log or anything floating, try sending a vertical jig down 75 feet and working it back up.  That is a great way to catch wahoo, although they are often small.
