The boys took out Tom Rowland, of Saltwater Experience, fishing for wahoo. Using red meat chunks, they chummed in these elusive pelagic fish and got some unbelievable underwater footage of wahoo eating the chunks. This was filmed in Key West during the full moon of October.

Wahoo are related to mackerels and live in tropical and subtropical waters worldwide. Wahoo tend to travel solo, but are sometimes found in small nomadic schools of migrating fish. They are prized nomadic game fish due primarily to their speed, epic fighting action and of course, delicious dining quality.
The IGFA world record wahoo was 184 pounds, but they are more commonly 40 to 50 pounds and live for around 5 to 6 years. Wahoo are known to reach speeds up to 60 mph and are considered among the fastest pelagic species. Because of their incredible speed, they are capable of capturing a wide range of prey, including various types of bait fishes and squid.

The Mercury Active Trim is a GPS, speed based, automatic engine trim system. This responds to the weather around you responding to the weather conditions around you and fuel economy. Now the engine will set the trim for you so you no longer have to. I know many guys who don’t even use their trim because they don’t want to deal with it. The trim is super important for leveling the boat off and saving on fuel - that is why this invention is so awesome.
The newest edition to the Scales gear family is the Fisherman Board Shorts, made my fisherman for fisherman. One of my favorite features is the padded waste band - when we are fishing all day long with spinning tackle, fighting the fish is just the beginning. Then you have to fight the pain of when it hits you in the hip. Scales built protection right in for that exact situation. There is also a built in plier pocket with polyester so the pliers don’t get jammed up - aside from that they are extremely comfortable. Check them out!
With parties during the holidays, the best appetizer you can do is a smoked fish dip. We love this Smoked Kingfish dip. We will cut it up into large chunks about the size of your hand so that they cook evenly and you smoke them skin down. Personally I like to marinate mine with lots of spice, pepper and teriyaki and brown sugar.

I like to take an average like 20 pound tuna and cut the loin into thirds. Then you have to get all the red meat off of it, which you do anyway to eat it. I like to get them about 4 inches long and about 2 stacks of that will fill a jar. I like them to be about a celery stalk.
