Wahoo! The wahoo fishing is the best I have ever seen it! I have been crushing the wahoos this year both here fishing in Islamorada and fishing in Bimini. Every trip out has been great with double and triple headers. The fish have been running from 35-50 pounds with some larger specimens up to 65 pounds. I have been high-speed trolling for most of them with artificial lures. Nothing compares to having three 50 pound wahoos all hooked up at once with the reels screaming! It is my favorite thing to do! It is also a great diversion between sailfish spots. I hopscotch up and down the reef looking for sailfish while trolling for wahoo. Usually we catch both along with king mackerel up to 40 pounds.

The snapper fishing is always incredible in Bimini either for yellowtails in the shallows or silk and queen snappers in the deep. The occasional large misty or snowy grouper also livens things up for the angler wondering why his queen snapper is pulling so hard!

We still have been catching the odd school of mahi mahi coming and going on our crossings. Some of them have been nice fish in the 15-20 pound range.
