Wahoo fishing in the Florida Keys...

Just got this video clip of some outstanding Wahoo fishing from the Captain I worked with when I was down in the Florida Keys aboard the SeaBoots boat out of Summerland Key...

.

Here is a description of the fishing going on down in the Keys that Captain Jim Sharpe sent me while I was spending my free time digging out from the 24"+ snow storm up here in Virginia...



"Last week we had the best day of wahoo fishing I have ever seen. A neighbor came down to weight a wahoo he shot, 63 pounds. He told us there was a whole school of these big wahoo in 100 feet of water off American Shoal Light. The next day we decided to take a bus mans holiday and target the wahoo. We are field testers for Rapala/Williamson products so this was a good excuss. Wow what a wahoo day, wahooooooo! in three and one half hours we fought 18 wahoo and landed 9 from 40 to 65 pounds, we were hooking them six at a time. I have caught as many as 25 wahoo in one day but they are usually 8 to 12 pounds. These were monsters. We lost many fish at the boat due to their size. Luckily I brought along my new Sony high Definition commercial camera and videoed the catch. I have attached a short clip of the wahoo action I hope you enjoy it. A full version DVD is available $14.99 plus shipping and handling. I recently wrote an article for Rapala on their knifes. I know they have a fine knife selection I test them but I never new the details of how they get such high quality steel and sharp blades until my recent research into the matters. I have included the article for you to enjoy, it will appear in Sport fishing magazine shortly You are seeing it first. Please have a happy and safe holidays!

The Florida Keys are home to a beautiful ecosystem of sponges, rays, turtles and schools of shimmering fish. Watersports enthusiasts are in their element, while free thinkers like Ernest Hemingway have long found the Keys inspiring.
