Ali Hussainy of Southern California and Capt. Rush Maltz of the Florida Keys are back in the action as they explore new tackle, techniques, and destinations in this brand-new season.

They kick off Season 6 with a winter-time trip to Rush’s hometown of Key West, Florida.  They make the best of a windy day with some light tackle patch reef fishing for a mixed bag of snapper and grouper.  Hopes are high that the next full-moon weather window will allow them to chase the sometimes-elusive offshore zebras – wahoo.

“To be honest, Rush and I admit to the fact that trolling isn’t our first-choice method of fishing,” said Ali.  “But we also know that sometimes it’s the ticket for searching out and finding the fish.”

Using new straight-tracking Nomad lures in several styles, the boys put out an exploratory wahoo spread and begin to cover some ground at 10-knots.

“I don’t really know where these wahoo come from or where they’re going, but wintertime is when they arrive in the Keys,” say’s Capt. Rush.  “The one thing I do know is that any calm winter day you stand a good chance to find and catch these awesome fish.”
