Wahoo

Introduction
The ratchet screams like you have never heard before. The line literally melts off your reel. As the boat slows, and you realise a hundred metres are gone, you best back your drag off real quick. To about half of strike drag. This is because, all that line out there, creates it’s own drag by being pulled through the water by the fish.
Finally the wahoo slows, and you can now gently turn his head by putting the drag back up to strike and cranking in some of that line. The wahoo is notorious for that first blistering run, but it sure tires him out, as he sits tight a while to rest. This is your chance to put as many metres back onto the spool as possible, before he wakes up again, turns on his lights, and speeds of into the blue again.
But this time he is tired, and out here in the deep blue, there are less sharks to worry about. And so, you can now gently coax his huge head up to the boat, usually in big slow circles.
This is the most crucial moment as the lanky and strong fish shakes his head to try shake those hooks.
And then finally…there it is. 6ft of wondrous sea creature.
