Wahoo Teaser - 10-17-2015
« on: October 19, 2015, 01:46:14 PM »
Hey All!

It's been awhile since my last outing & report. The yellowfin & dodo counts are down but the current wahoo reports are too tempting to ignore.

With marauder jigs in the tackle box, I launched out of Dana targeting the "Elusive Ono". The landing wasn't so busy this AM probably due to the afternoon forecast; overcast, 10 to 15 knot winds, mixed 3-4 foot swells, water temp 74.5...rough seas to say the least. Beautiful lively sardines this time from the bait receiver for backup, but I knew I was trolling for most of the day. The word was to start around San Mateo Rock down to Oceanside between depths of 800 to 1200 ft. I worked on a couple nice paddies on the way but all the trash lids were dry.

Around San Onofre, JIG STRIKE! But the suspected wahoo popped off on the slide....DRAT! After working the Box Canyon to Oceanside til 2, I called the day. I did hook a nice size sting ray on the iron inside of Pendleton.

I noticed the wahoo bite marks on my marauder went I got home. It was a one jig strike, goose egg trip...Better luck next time  ::)

Hey Chris...how did you do last Sat? Couldn't make it out Sat but went Sunday..."skunkola" on the wahoos. Just some menacing rat yellows. I heard on the vhf one guy got one and others got some descent yellows around the rock pile at the box. Hope you did better.

I know the feeling, Pal. The good news is the water temp's still in the lower 70s & that they're still scratching em here and there...all bruisers too. Gonna keep trying for em every chance I get.
