Cowbell type lures are designed for high speed trolling - I like around 17 knots. High speed trolling may not be the best method if the wahoo are congregated in an area. In certain regions it is the best way to catch hoo and in others its not. Over here on the east coast, we throw a few cowbells out on our long runs to blue water (40-100 miles depending on locale.) and every once and awhile we catch a wahoo. I know people who have caught mahi and even bluefin tuna at 17 knots so those saying mahi won't bite a cowbell are wrong. Best mahi lure? no way, but you never know.
