Wahoo!

Thanks to Bite ME Gamefishing Charters, Fiji for the Photo of this Fabulous Wahoo.  For Saltwater junkies, the wahoo is a great catch, unless you’re chasing something bigger like a black Marlin.

Here is what a typical Wahoo trophy looks like.

According to Wikipidea 

The wahoo (Acanthocybium solandri) is a dark blue scombrid fish found worldwide in tropical and subtropical seas. Its speed and high-quality flesh make it a prize game fish. In Hawaii, the fish is known as ono. Hispanic areas of the Caribbean and Central America call it Peto…The flesh of the wahoo is white and delicate and regarded as high in quality. This has created some demand for the wahoo as a premium priced commercial food fish. However, because of its solitary lifestyle, it is caught commercially only as a by-catch in the long-line fishery for tuna and dolphin (Mahi-mahi or dorado). Wherever found, it is a prized catch in sport fishing – the only exception is that it is sometimes regarded as a pest when it interferes with big game fishing (especially Marlin Fishing).
