Wahoo Coming Thick and Fast

Australian angler Kelvin with a pack wahoo

The cooler winter waters are now moving in on the Fiji Islands and the wahoo packs are flooding in.
Some packs are made up of smaller fish around 20kg (45lbs) like the one above but bigger wahoo to 40kg are starting to show. Also now showing are the eagerly anticipated Pacific Sailfish as well as frequent good sized mahi mahi, many of which are weighing in at around 17-18kg (40lbs).

Its been a late season start and the wahoo are still holding on the Southern cooler sides of reefs and islands but they are there in big numbers. Aboard Bite Me we have often been in the enviable position of catching so many wahoo we have been throwing them back !

Dinner ?
No - This one like many others goes back....
