Hawaiian Ono Fishing off Oahu
The Wahoo takes to Oahu’s waters throughout the year, and is especially abundant between March and September. It is relatively small on average, with a mean weight of only 25 pounds, but it does range much higher than that. The largest one caught near Oahu was 124 pounds, so be prepared for the possibility of a formidable fight with this fish. Even if reeling it in isn’t itself a challenge, finding it can be, as Wahoo do not swim in schools. Your best bet for catching one is through trolling; both live and dead bait will attract it.
