Long, slender body marked with zebra like stripes of white and deep blue or black. Mouth is elongated and narrow, and equipped with razor-sharp teeth—careful!
HABITAT: Roams the deep blue water, but anglers can find them by working drop-offs, seamounts, weed-lines and other favorable feeding locations.
FOOD VALUE: The flesh of the wahoo is white to grey, delicate to dense, and highly regarded by many gourmets. The taste is similar to mackerel, though arguably less pronounced. A good smoking fish
GAME QUALITIES: May strike a surface bait in spectacular, grey-hounding fashion, but seldom jumps after being hooked. Wild fight is characterized by several sizzling runs, usually at or near the surface. One of the fastest of all game-fish
