JUST IN TIME FOR THE WAHOO CHALLENGE

The big Wahoo are here just in time for next Saturday's Wahoo Challenge as proven by Chris Cooke and crew yesterday aboard the Sensation ..., as they decked several BIG Wahoo including a 50 pounder and a 47 pounder ...., I'll post photos from yesterday this evening but in the meantime you can check out the photo page for the previous few days action ....., Capt Woo Woo Harper always said that when Hell comes it will come from the Southeast and yesterday's Southeast wind and swell were harsh on the entire fleet ...., we were luckier than most of the fleet with our catch but everyone including Dancin Outlaw, Bill Collector, Island Girl, Reel Country and Diamond Girl each scraped up catches including Wahoo, Mahdi, Tuna and Sailfish ...., but speaking of rough seas ...., I long for Silky Smooth conditions as I had earlier this week .....,
