The Day's Fishing Conditions
On this day, we were up against an approaching frontal system. The morning might have started off slow, but as the tide neared its end, the bite intensified. It's not uncommon for fish to be active throughout the day leading up to a front. We delve into the variables that sustain this activity.
When you're ready to gaff a wahoo, aim for the head or the gill plate. Once the fish is over the gunwale and you're thinking of capturing the moment, proceed with caution. To immobilize the wahoo for photos, grab it by the gill rakers with a firm grip.
Our gear of choice was mostly 50W reels paired with Blackfin rods. Some outfits were equipped with Hooker Electric modules, allowing us the flexibility to either hand crank or use the electric motor. It's a handy tool for any angler.
