Default Wahoo hunting just past the edge on Thursday

Had the fortunate opportunity to get out since my accident on a friends awesome 36' Grady express. Calm seas pretty much all day. Wasn't able to reel a fish in or do much work but it was great just to be out. Still helped the guys get a great spread out and before we could get the third line out, the first reel starts screaming! Big A$$ Bo Bo. Disappointed it wasn't a hoo we got all the lines in. Happened two more times with bonito and about 2 hours in our world was rocked!
just about got spooled on a 30w by some billfish. Def not a sailfish. The reel was SCREAMING! Had braid on the 30w and was down to about the last 50 yards, turn the boat to try and make it up and as we did she jumped and broke the mainline somewhere close to the lure. Took the poor older guy a while just to reel back the empty line.
Funny story is the guy just bought the lure from me, his wife told him "that sure is a pretty lure, what are you gonna do if you loose it???" He replied I never catch a fish big enough for that to happen. I laughed my tail off when he told us that after the fact. He hooked her on my Hustler lure in mirror with a white fade to blue skirt. He lost it after 2 hours of getting it wet.

About an hour or so later a big splash comes through the short rigger, missed the hook on my custom Poseidon lure and about 30 seconds later comes in and hits the small jetted lure (only lure that wasn't mine) on the smallest reel and rod! About a 15 minute fight and she's boat side. 42lber.

Caught several bo bo's, missed one hell of a billfish and ended up with a decent wahoo.

Tailwalker Lures working out nicely!

The Hustler lure is the cupped lure in the picture below but in the color of the mirrored head Orion lure that's pictured 2nd.

The last pic is of the Poseidon custom the wahoo missed off the rigger, missing almost half the skirt.
