There is no mistaking the early stages of a large Wahoo encounter. The strike is a violent, crash tackle full of teeth and immense power. A baitfish wouldn’t stand a chance. The early confusion the predator displays is over in a heartbeat as line evaporates from the spool at a rate few fish can match. Not all Wahoo fight the same though. One particular fish came to the boat very easily, taking no line and behaving passively. I saw the 25kg fish lit up under the boat and thought I really don’t want to stick a gaff in this thing and drag a very green 5ft Wahoo into a tinny!!
