Wahoo Out the Wahoo

By Scott Lenox

Wahoo Out the Wahoo

We’ve had some tough weather lately, and it looks like it might be really tough in a week or two.  We are definitely keeping our eyes on hurricane Matthew, which is currently south of the Caribbean.  Matthew is a very strong storm and could do “catastrophic” damage in the Caribbean.  Where he heads after that is up in the air, but most models have him moving in the direction of the eastern seaboard which will probably at least effect our fishing.  I’ll definitely keep you posted.

Except for some fog, it was a decent weather day off in the canyons and a welcome change to the wind we’ve been dealing with.  Several boats from the fleet got out to the deep today and were rewarded with some really good fishing.  There were a surprising number of wahoo seen and caught out there with 0ne boat catching 11.

The MARLI crew with Captain Mark Hoos and mate Mark Stephens had a banner day fishing in the Baltimore Canyon today. They had a limit of mahi and a 77lb Wahoo. The fog was thick but the fishing was hot!

Captain Luke Blume on the C Boys had a good day trolling the Washington today with solo angler Mike Hinton.  Captain Luke and mate Jon Henry put Mike on two nice wahoo of 60 and 37 pounds and a couple of mahi.

Captain Joe Drosey on Rhonda’s Osprey had a good day today.  Captain Joe fished the Baltimore and put his anglers on two white marlin releases, two nice yellowfin tuna and a load of mahi.


The crew of the Spring Mix II with Captain Chris Watkowski and mate Ayrton Pryor caught a load of mahi fishing the Baltimore Canyon.  The crew caught 37 mahi trolling ballyhoo and bailing on a floating log.


New weekend warrior Austin Ensor’s patience was rewarded today with a nice day offshore.  Austin had a white marlin release, a couple of yellowfin tuna and a couple of mahi fishing in 70 fathoms on the 120 line.

There have been more and more drum showing up in the surf and around the inlet jetties.  Bear at the Oceanic Pier submitted this photo of Don from Wilmington, DE who caught this nice black drum on a sand flea from the north sea wall.
