WAHOO
Acanthocybium solandri

Wahoo are caught here in Mazatlan Mexico from October thru March when the water is from 70 to 86 degrees fahrenheit which is 21 to 30 degrees celsius. The Wahoo here is 30 lbs to 60 lbs on average with a world record of 158 lbs. 8 oz in Mexico.

The upper body of Wahoo is dark blue or electric blue with waved stripes. Their lower body is silver. They have an overshot lower jaw and their dorsal fin is curved and highest at rear. Wahoo are famous for their razor sharp teeth, so care is taken when handling these fish.

The preffered method of fishing for Wahoo here is by trolling Mullet or Mackerel as well with the combination of plastic squid. If we get into a school of Skipjack or Bonito, we may stop to get a few live to troll. We also us a variety of trolling lures, konaheads and plastic squid.
