What did you catch your hoos on and what general area were you fishing?

Thanks,

Paul

Hey Paul, I see you're looking for Wahoo info on lots of these Hoo threads, so here is what I've got.

These wahoo are littered pretty solid right now all up and down the coast from The Coronados to San Diego and up to Dana Point and beyond. They are everywhere right now!

The two hot tickets are Marauders and Marlin lures, but then again I think that is mainly because that is what is mostly being dragged behind the boats right now.

2 of the 3 fish in the tournament were caught with Marauders, and the other fish I don't remember the lure. Fish in the tournament were caught on various areas of the 9, although I also talked to guys not in the tournament who caught fish in other areas further north off laJolla and beyond. I also got a text from a friend who finally scored his first local wahoo, and it too was from further up north.

You just have to troll troll troll and hope your number comes up.

Good luck!

Mike.
Thank you so much for putting this thing on.
For someone to take the time to do this,
on short notice and with no personal gain at stake.
It really just shows your true colors and your passion for the sport.

Team Double trouble and Ron.
You guys rock. if it wasn't for you guys relaying information
back to Mike we would have been out of contention.
Congratulations Team Double trouble for putting one on the deck.
It was rough as hell out there and I think you guys were the only
other team to suck it up and stay out the entire day, fuel issues and all!

David.
You were a godsend yesterday! you worked your ass off the entire day to put Hoo on the deck.
Even after we had two on deck you insisted on staying out as long as we could to put Jake on a fish.
At one point I gave Dave the option of calling it and heading in due to the conditions.
His reply was, Um this is a tournament we are not here to pleasure fish!
You are welcome aboard anytime my boat leaves the dock my friend.

Thank you for all the nice comments on the boat.
She's a 1971 Starfire 245 fisherman.

Nice work all. Hopefully with some real first hand experience we will participate in next year's tourney, but right now we just suck at wahoo fishing! Still trying though.
