Trolling for Wahoo
Trolling (the method we use for catching Wahoo) for Wahoo out of the St. Lucie Inlet in Stuart Florida can be hit or miss year round – there isn’t really a consistent Wahoo fishing season. The best time of the year to target Wahoo would be in the Winter, October through February and again in the Summer months of August and September. Most Wahoo catches are accidental during the Winter months because of the desire to pursue Sailfish with monofilament leaders. If you desire to catch Wahoo during the Winter months just specify this to your Captain at the time of your booking and the proper changes will be made. During the summer months high speed trolling baits and lures are the most effective method for targeting the Wahoo that hang along the ledges and structure between Stuart and Jupiter inlets. The average weight of the fish caught locally is around 25lbs with fish over 50lbs not uncommon.
