My daughter is in town visiting so we decided to take her out and see if we could get some wahoo on our new 31 Cabo called Really Big Fish and she came through with some luck! We were out Dana for about 2 hours almost to the 14 mile bank trolling a fire tiger Marauder along with a red & white Rapala X-Rap. The Marauder went screaming first and she grabbed the rod and went to war for 20 minutes, my buddy Rick did a great job of coaching her and clearing another trolling line. During the commotion the Rapala went off and the next thing we new we had two hoo on! Got lucky on the Rapala rig since it was straight mono, Rick managed to gaff both fish on board and help my daughter have a very special day yesterday with her dad. Way to go Team Really Big Fish!

Thank you for all of the positive comments! My daughter had caught wahoo in Mexico before when she was only 12 but it didn't take her long to realize how rare this double wahoo catch was especially after seeing her dad & best friend dancing, screaming, hugging like a couple of young school girls. Wow I love fishing!

Words can not describe the adrenaline and excitement I was feeling. Plus a little fear. I wanted to catch that Wahoo so so bad I was worried I would screw it up. But thanks to Rick and my Dad they coached me right through it....

Man what a rush... I forgot how much I love deep sea fishing. Thanks again to Team Really Big Fish, you guys always seem to know exactly where the fish are, and I now have another amazing experience with my DAD!!!!

PS... My favorite part was watching My Dad and Rick dance and scream like little school girls. I still have Ricks voice in my head screaming "Oh MY GOD we have a double freaking WAHOO"
