Default Citation Wahoo in Hatteras 8/27

Left Teach's lair around 630 and headed toward the weather buoy. Set out in about 120' and trolled about an hour and the center rigger with a blue, black, and white ilander goes off. First wahoo in upper 20's goes in the box. Trolled about 2 hours before we had another bite. Had a blue, black, and crystal supreme witch on the left long rigger and it gets it. At first it was just like any other wahoo bite, but when he kicked it in 2nd gear he took all 150yds of topshot in about 3 seconds. Finally got him to the boat and immediately knew it was a citation when he was laying in the box. Weighed 56lbs, first citation wahoo.

Nice fish! Glad you found them. There were a lot of boats working that area Saturday. We caught 3 betweeen the buoy and the tower in 30 fathoms, along with a gaffer and skipjack. Pretty day on the water with multiple Sailfish sightings.

We had a couple of funny bites that didn't come tight. We figured they were sails.

Nice 'hoo.
But I must ask...
What exactly is a "citation" wahoo?
Not being a smart-alec...I really do not know.
