wahoo fish

Wahoo are highly sought after by offshore fishing enthusiasts. Their abundance in the Mid Atlantic varies considerably by region and season.

In North Carolina, wahoo are common; they are caught less frequently in northern areas. Wahoo are often associated with weedlines, temperature breaks, wrecks, and other offshore structure.

One of most popular rigs for catching wahoo is a rigged ballyhoo, in combination with a purple and black feather or sea witch.

Wahoo are also taken using specialized planer rigs, hard baits, and other deep running lures.
