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.

As Thanksgiving quickly approaches so do the first few cold fronts of the year. With these cold fronts comes a migration of mullet, ballyhoo and pilchards that stirs up the pelagic species like Wahoo, Sailfish and Kingfish. The timing couldn’t be better because a few Kingfish in the Yeti can make for a Thanksgiving side dish or appetizer that your guests will love.
Here is my favorite recipe for smoked Kingfish spread and the one I will use for the big meal but also for several football games. I know it is good because there have never been any leftovers.
Whether you’re out tournament fishing/charter fishing/ or just out boating, you have to have a reliable engine. Mercury Marine is the most innovative in reliability and corrosion resistance. They come with a 3 year factory warranty in corrosion resistance. They have 2x as much stainless steel as any other competitors.
“I’m just rigging up a squid, a little heavier duty than I need to. I am attaching the body and the head to the hook so that if he slashes it - he can’t just tear it in half without having to come back with something all in a knot. It can hit this really good and it will still hold together. It is a little bit more than you need to do, but these baits are soft and they are so far down I like to have a second chance…
As a meal, swordfish are the perfect combination between fish and a meaty steak. Unlike some fish, swordfish is the ideal in-between flavor of fishy and non-fishy taste, making it a perfect selection for those beginning to expand their palette with fish and seafood. What makes swordfish unique is that it is sold by steaks and carries a meaty-like texture to it, rather than a flaky consistency such as tilapia or grouper. Swordfish are cooked exactly like steaks, so they are grilled to your preferred temperature.
Yeti keeps stepping up their game. Here is the new Yeti Loadout Bucket. The strongest bucket ever
We cut a lot of fish. Some for eating and some for bait. In the picture at the top we are cutting a bonito into chunks by cutting in a checkerboard pattern then cutting all of those off the carcass. We will use these chunks for chumming and for baiting our hooks for a host of different species and applications.
Each fish has a way that it is best filleted or cleaned for eating. One thing that is in common with each of these is that you will need a very sharp fillet knife. As you get more involved, you can move from one knife to several which are slightly more specialized for each task. Here are some examples:
Each of the fish we fish for have ways that they can be held safely. There are very few fish that we catch that do not have dangerous parts. Teeth, sharp fins, bills or gill rakers can all cause damage to your hands while other fish just react wildly to being held.
As a Captain or an avid fisherman, it is important to know how to handle each fish to get it in the Yeti or to release it safely and unharmed.
