Best Lures to Catch Wahoo

About Wahoo

Wahoo fish, scientifically known as Acanthocybium solandri, are sleek and fast predators found in warm tropical and subtropical waters around the world. They are known for their torpedo-like bodies, vibrant blue-green coloring, and razor-sharp teeth. Wahoo are prized by anglers for their speed and delicious, firm flesh, making them a popular catch in sport fishing and a delectable addition to seafood menus. 

Since Wahoo are such fast predatory fish with razor sharp teeth, your selection of lures need to be larger, and more durable than typical lures used to target Mahimahi, Tuna, and Billfish. High Speed Trolling (HST) has become extremely popular for targeting Wahoo as it has been learned that trolling lures fast beneath the surface triggers a response in the Wahoo that they cannot resist. High Speed Trolling also minimizes the less desirable catches like MahiMahi, Kingfish, Barracuda and others.

Below is our always expanding list of high quality Wahoo lures that are sure to get you hooked up when you find the fish!
