What Charter Fishes For Them:
Long, slender body marked with zebra-like stripes of white and deep blue or black. Mouth is
elongated and narrow, and equipped with razor-sharp teeth.
Wahoo are present in the Atlantic, Pacific and Indian Oceans in clear, tropical and subtropical
waters. Heavy seasonal concentrations occur off the Pacific coasts of Panama, Costa Rica and
Baja California in the summer. Offshore of all Florida coasts, like Daytona, Miami, and especially
the Keys, but much more plentiful in the Bahamas and many Caribbean Islands.
While the wahoo is perfectly capable of biting chunks out of large fish, it primarily feeds on whole
small fishes, such as sardines, scads, mackerel and squid. They are frequently solitary feeders,
but they may sometimes be found in small, loose groups. Wahoo are sub-surface hunters that
hang several feet below the surface and shoot up to attack prey with tremendous speed. Although
they feed at all times, they tend to be more active in the morning and evening hours.
May strike a surface bait in spectacular, greyhounding fashion, but seldom jumps after being
hooked. Wild fight is characterized by several sizzling runs, usually at or near the surface. One of
the fastest of all gamefish.
