Nine of the Greatest Wahoo Ever Caught
Wahoo — the biggest, fastest and most prized of the mackerels is a global gamefish. This list shows just how worldwide are these pelagic nomads, caught in all tropical and warm-temperate oceans.
This list of nine outstanding world-record catches aren’t simply about size, though it does include all of the biggest wahoo in the International Game Fish Association record books, but also about quality, including some particularly impressive challenging light-line and tippet catches. This list reflects wahoo taken according to the IGFA’s standards. Certainly other large wahoo have been caught (for example a 182-pounder out of Cape Cod in 2016), but not entered with the IGFA or not taken per association rules.
