Wahoo in Costa Rica, Carolina Style

The sailfish bite continues to improve, most of the boats had a dozen or more shots yesterday. On the Dragin Fly, everyone caught a sail and a wahoo, that's right, we caught 5 wahoo yesterday.

After having several wahoo bites on ballyhoo and losing them because of the hoo's razor sharp teeth cutting the mono leader used for sailfish, Capt. James put out a big planer and slid down some of Capt. Joe Shute's wahoo lures rigged on wire. It didn't take long fishing Carolina Style to get on the bite, adding 5 wahoo up to 50 pounds to a handful of sails.
