So you want to catch wahoo, huh? There’s no better place for it than the great Bayou state of Louisiana. Louisiana natives and Salt Life team members Nicole Spenc, Jacki Shea, and Louis Thornton recently sat down to share some insider tips with us. Just what is it that is so exhilarating about a good wahoo bite? Maybe it’s the thrill of fighting a fish that can often weigh between 80 and 100 pounds.

Hit the water at the right time of year, and your rig will be bending steadily on your first couple of casts.
