We caught this very nice 30kg Wahoo whilst fishing on our boat Catalyst for Black Marlin near Linden Bank on the outer section of the Great Barrier Reef 35NM from Cairns.

I know that in other locations they get much bigger, but it’s the largest Wahoo that I have personally seen and a big unit for Australian waters. It left a huge smile on the Skipper (me) and Anglers faces and broke up a very quiet morning chasing the big girls.




Angler (Rick) and his very nice Wahoo

It was caught on a 37kg stand up rod and gave a good fight even though we were fishing heavy tackle. The Wahoo savaged the short corner lure and took a 100m run on strike. Very Exciting stuff.



Deckhand (Travis) holds up the large fish for all to see.

Good stuff. Congratulations.

I want a big wahoo.

I had them tear up my jigging stuff in Lakshadweep last December.

You have got to love the Cock and Bull in Cairns. Its great for a beer and a pub meal. The life size game fish decorating the walls are amazing.

I live on the North Side of town and don't get into Cairns CBD all that much.

I am sorry but I don't know Graham.
