The Bottom Line

08.26.18.wahoo.jpg

Wahoo, wahoo, wahoo! Lots of wahoo and nice-sized tuna as well. Bart Hall (of Fred Hall Show fame) caught three wahoo in one day in the 20- to 30-pound class and farmed another three. Little billfish pressure as most anglers were trolling Rapalas and looking for and finding the elusive ’hoo. (The trolled Rapalas were deadly). Along with accompanying tuna, the wahoo were taken off the white cliffs south of Los Frailes.

Billfish
Very light fishing pressure with wahoo being the name of the game.

Tuna
A fair to good bite of decent-sized fish. It’s sort of one of those “take your best shot and see what you get” kind of things.

Dorado
An excellent bite of smaller to medium-sized fish -- very spread out.

Roosterfish
Fewer anglers are looking for them.

InshorePargo, amberjack and pompano. These are real rod-benders!

Meanwhile, back at the Ranch

Roosterfish still to be found along the beaches. If you’ve never caught a wahoo, this may be your best shot. Very, very good fishing overall.
