Wahoo lives in worldwide in tropical and warm temperate seas. This fish is a pelagic and seasonally migratory, it tends to be a loner or travel in small groups of 2 to 6 fish. There are indications of seasonal concentrations off the Pacific coasts of Panama, Costa Rica and Baja California in the summer, off Grand Cayman (Atlantic) in the winter and spring, and off the western Bahamas and Bermuda in the spring and fall. It is reputed to be one of the fastest fish in the sea, attaining speeds of 50 mph (80 km) and more. The first scorching run may peel off several hundred yards of line in seconds. Occasionally wahoo jumps on the strike and often shakes its head violently when hooked in an effort to free itself. Top fishing methods include trolling with whole, rigged baits as well as with strip baits or artificial lures.
