not sure, I know they are around during the summer. Read on the “Gulf Concerns” thread that they are congregated around the rigs right now. Anybody want to chime in on their travel patterns?

From what I understand, they like the west during the winter and the east during the summer.

Western Gulf? Or West end of Destin?

Wahoo (and certain forage species) need 70+ degree water temps. This is pretty much a given anywhere. The entire gulf east of LA is too cold right now until you get to the continental shelf (which is where you can catch them now if you're restricted to the area and down to burn some fuel). There is low 70 degree water pushed into the shallower depths off LA and running west to the 200-600ish' depths off texas, which is why you see big #s coming from the shelf rigs and the flower gardens.

I'm not sure what the exact travel pattern is but in short I feel they tend to disperse from their winter congregations and into shallower depths as spring warms the water. The earliest I've caught them on the edge out of Destin was mid-April. The fish were up high and aggressive with the warm water on the surface. I'll shut up from here.
