Nassau Offshore Fishing Forecast – November 2011

Capt. Teddy Pratt with a nice Nassau yellowfin.

AHH! The cold fronts are starting to move in early so we should see the wahoo season start in earnest. Already we have seen some action with wahoo showing up in small numbers but in November they will come in good numbers. There have been some small dolphin showing up as well. We have been trolling the ledges and a bit offshore along the weed lines. Trolling the wall and ledges off Nassau between 150 feet to 600 feet of water should be fruitful.

The wahoo we have been catching are anywhere between 20 to 40 pounds but from some of the reports I’m getting from some of the local weekend and charter boys, there are some bigger ones being caught and lost. From what I am seeing and hearing, it looks like it’s going to be a good season. If you want to be successful in catching these razor sharp, hard mouthed fish, double hooked rigs are a must.

Trolling speeds with rigged baits like ballyhoo range anywhere between 8 to 10 knots. We use anywhere from 50 pound to 80 pound test line with a good rod and reel set-up. Trolling lead weights are also needed to keep the baits or lures below the surface as you troll faster than usual.

We are looking forward to a great season of wahoo fishing so come down to Nassau for a great day of offshore fishing.
