Default Fla panhandle wahoo

Anyone been out trolling? Finally have started getting some decent weather. Thinking about running out and fishing the box or the edges but don't wanna waste the time if fish ain't around...I fish out of Carrabelle btw ..

I was out Sunday, a little to the east of there, found a giant weed line, pulled some chicken dolphin of it but no Wahoo. Seas have been great though.

Water is still too cold for wahoo anywhere within 70-80 miles of Carrabelle , not to stay there arenít any but a buddy of mine went out last weekend not sure where they went but Iím sure a long ways from carrebelle south or southwest, they struck out on wahoo. He said they did catch a blackfin tho

went to the rigs out of Destin this weekend and the water color was not good at all. Water temp was still to cold for good trolling we got one Tuna off of trolling but that was it. The spur is looking good now I think but another few weeks with the heat we have now should be good.

I fish Carabelle, I picked up an offshore capable boat this year. If anyone wants to buddy boat out that far and fish for some wahoo I am in. I have never done it and would like to try it so any info would be much appreciated.

What is the temp now? Just curious as we catch them in 70+ deg here and I figured it would be at least that warm in the gulf right now. Wondering how different it is there than here.

We went to Petronius started around 2:45 Sunday morning. The blue water is a whole lot closer to the spur than the rigs.

that sob has a better chance of catching a cold than a wahoo!
