In fact Iím here now and will be fishing over the next month. Any help is very appreciated since Iíve spent most of my life fishing the Great Lakes and am still learning this saltwater fishing. Also can I expect to get Mahi Mahi when fishing these lures?

Thanks
yes I have a customer who caught two wahoo in Hawaii on my dinnerbells on vacation

I have caught Wahoo on Cowbells as slow as 10 Kts. Slower than that (7-9 Kts) I have had no luck. But these are the 32 Oz "bells" so maybe the smaller ones would work. However at those slower speeds I use Yozuri Bonita's and Islander w/ Ballyhoo.

I have a guy named Adrian Cartwright who religiously runs a big boat charter and has caught a 120 and a 110 at the same trip. Assuming he has some sort of commercial liscense he fishes San Salvador and usually catches 10 to 20 wahoo ever trip between 10 to 12 mph .

Actually smart Alex the question asked about this type of lure if it can be trolled at slower speeds for whatever they call wahoo in Hawaii . The picture I was going to post was actually this one and it was caught in Hawaii and you can see in the background . Actually a customer from this thread purchased the lure . The picture that I did post yes he trolls them at about 10 mph and caught all the wahoo . This picture is a wahoo caught the same way in Hawaii . I make the lures and they are in stores worldwide . I barely have time to even get on here and im
a sponsor . So I was trying to help the guy out . I also ha e plenty of pics of mahi being caught on these trolling them at 10 knots . One thing I do not miss about this is the computer cowboys . I was simply trying to help someone out with a question .

Caught in Hawaii on my dinnerbell at 10 knots .
