To land these powerful fish, it’s essential to have the right equipment. Opt for heavy-duty reel and rod combos, capable of handling the challenge. For wahoo, use fast trolling lures like jet heads, marlin lures, or large spoons. Dolphin, on the other hand, are drawn to brightly colored or live bait such as ballyhoo, squid, or pilchards.

Trolling is a popular method for targeting both wahoo and dolphin. Set your trolling speed between 6-12 knots, depending on the conditions. Use outriggers to extend your spread and cover more water, increasing your chances of a strike. Additionally, planer boards can help take your bait deeper, attracting wahoo lurking beneath the surface.
