    I've had a couple of these for a long while, I trolled one on an 8 day years ago and now it's a rusty mess (even after a fresh water rinse on the boat and after getting home). My question is: do they really catch fish or mostly fishermen? Trying to get my Wahoo trolling jigs into one box, some will not make the next trip for lack of room.

    I think I'd just hang it on the wall.

    Once the wahoo drug is administered you will pay anything and try anything to get your fix. It works but in reality almost anything does.

    Art Green would throw a shrek doll with a hook in it and caught a few...

    Needs a baby rattle on the back. Heck, I’d try it. Maybe in the 10th wake.

    I have real wahoo trolling lures, so I doubt it will make the cut...

    I would fish it.

    I rigged a giant 12" dildo. Complete with attachments!

    It wasnt in the water for 2 minutes when a Wahoo inhaled it.

    What happened afterwards will stay on the Big X.

    I spend way more time thinking about catching Wahoo than tuna. Can't wait to give the intruder it's first try!

    remember the kids toy Troll Dolls. We wired one up, and got the boat stopped 3 times in '01 at Alijos. Rubberhook from BD was on the trip, and had trolled up a wahoo on an ear of corn from the galley. Was a Catchy Tackle trip when their wahoo lures first came out...troll doll outfished the spinner head to head. The boys were not impressed :( :D :D
