Went to the nipple sat trilled about 6 hours with nothing to show for but some lost islanders we got cut off a few times by what we thought were wahoo. How can u stop this from happening without using wire

I rig my Ilanders on 200lb mono for medium ballyhoo and rig some on 300lb if rigged with a larger hook for use with a horse ballyhoo. I have never lost an ilander from a wahoo bite but have lost other lures from it. Trolling speed may have something to do with it. At a slower speed, the fish can get a more accurate shot and swallow the lure whereas at a speed of 7-8 knots, it will usually hit further back generally behind the head and protect the main leader. You can rig them with wire if you'd like but i don't really find it necessary.
Come see me at our store below. I'm there:
