East Cape - Wahoo Alley 

Last week just as it started to look like things couldn't get any better an upwelling of cold off colored water came from the south and I watched water temps drop from 78 to 70 degrees overnight.  It was no surprise the dramatic change in conditions dried up our bait supply and put a crimp in the bite.  Day by day the water has warmed.  Now bait is plentiful and the fishing has spooled back up again.

Now striped marlin, yellowfin tuna, wahoo, roosterfish and even a few dorado are bending rods and on anglers score cards.  The incredible wahoo bite has been the biggest surprise to me.  I'm calling the area between Punta Colorada and Punta Arena Wahoo Alley.  In the more than 26 years living here I have never found it this easy to target wahoo.  In the last 2 weeks we have helped 6 different anglers bag their bucket list wahoo.

Hard to hook. Two boobie trap hooks and  a hoo still managed to slice this bait in two and elude all those hooks

One day we had great action but only went one for ten

Bucket list hoo


They just keep coming
