Edge Trolling for Wahoo
This is part three of the high speed trolling for wahoo video. Since this fishing video is nearly three hours, I have taken certain parts to offer you the chance to watch very specific portions, without having to scrub through the entire video. I hope this makes it easier to find what you are most interested in learning.
Wahoo are structure oriented fish, so in the islands much of the structure is made up of reef edges. Bait gathers onto the edge for protection or is swept out during tidal movements. This is where the wahoo fishing is best. The edge is something you need to understand.
Driving the boat along the edge is an exact science, if you want to catch more fish. Your lures need to be in the right depth. Go too deep and catch nothing. Get to shallow and it's barracudas. The makeup of the edge is rather steep. The distance from the shallow part of the reef to the deeper water is short. The edge is hard, but this is where you need to be.
If you are not driving, weaving your way along the edge, you are not catching wahoo. Since the edge is not straight, you will not be driving in a straight line. The thing you have to recon is what depth are your lures as you work your way along the edge. They will go from deep to shallow and back again. It is not the depth under you boat that you have to factor in. It is where your lures are.
Understanding where along the edge wahoo will position themselves is key to knowing where you should concentrate your wahoo trolling spread.
