FishRap Staff

Balboa Angling Club reportedly weighed the first wahoo catch of 2015 on Aug. 29. Mikko Monte and his dad Eric reeled in the 59.75-inch long wahoo while aboard a 37-foot Hatteras (owned by longtime Balboa Angling Club member Neal Monte, Mikko’s grandfather) while fishing at the 17 Fathom Spot. Mikko Monte battled the wahoo, which had a 24.25-inch girth, for about 20 minutes before reeling in the 52.58-pounder using a 50-pound tackle.

The last wahoo reeled in by a Balboa Angling Club boat was in September 2014.

Wahoos are generally found off the shores of Baja California.
