We've really tried hard to find the best selection of lures on the market
for wahoo. While many styles of lure will get hammered by a 'hoo, over the
years a trend has developed that's the focus of this particular page.
Tossing Wahoo Bombs has turned into a very productive Long Range fishing
trip mainstay and pre-occupation. There's nothing more fun than
casting out a hunk of lure, and hooking up with a 50# plus bullet with
teeth. Tossing bombs on a 6470 with a Newell 533 is something just
about every long range style fisherman does. (Well, you
can tell this was written several years ago -
boy the gear has progressed) Here are the best
specialty lures on the market, ones that have proven their worth in the
mouths of fish.
Captain Jimmy's Wahoo Bombs
- Cast and Retrieve for 'Hoo
I tried to
stock these lures several years ago after
returning from a Red Rooster III charter. We had
a very good bite on wahoo that trip, and the
boat had some of Captain Jimmy's lures aboard
which really out produced the other wahoo bombs.
I contacted Jim, and he really wasn't geared up
to handle our orders. He was a long ranger, made
the lures as a hobby, and didn't want to get too
wrapped up with more work. Well, a few
years passed, and Jim contacted me in early
2019. Sure was nice to hear that he'd like
us to stock his excellent wahoo bombs.
Probably the quickest order he's received,
narrowed down the color selection and here's the
result, some very successful lures, well proven
You may notice that these jigs are
not pre-rigged with cable or wire. Some anglers prefer to run mono
over the cable, personal preference. No doubt that a person will get
more bites if you rig the lure on mono or fluorocarbon, but you do run
the risk of not getting your lure back in your hands if you are in the
midst of a good wahoo bite. I usually run my own jigs without any
cable/wire, but will typically run 18-24 inches of 135# seven strand
cable on a bomb.
- Cast and Rip Bait
Slash jig can be fished a couple ways, for great
effect. For our
long range fishermen, it's a GREAT wahoo lure.
For deepwater enthusiasts it's a deep water jig
with excellent action on the drop and wind.
Having said that, the thing casts great and we
rig it properly with a higher quality Mustad hook and a
ball bearing swivel (ours even points the right
way...) attached with welded rings. Our colors
and finish are top quality. While it will bring
in wahoo when they are around, don't be afraid
to jig it for tuna and yellowtail. If your
fishing trip to Alijos shifts gears and moves to Cedros fine, you've got the right lure,
if instead you hit the banks for rockfish,
you've still got an effective lure on your
hands. One lure, fits a few applications, and a
few different styles of fishing.

NEW 2017 ICAST Introduction!
We've been working with
the owner of Tormenter on these lures
for over a year's time. We told him what
we were looking for, how we wanted 'em
rigged, the right source for the
attention getting skirts, and the weight
& finish. He listened well.
new Tormenter Wahoo Bombs are the nicest such lures on the market.
While they can be effectively fished by a private boater on the
troll, or on the slide off any boat, they are made for long distance
casting to voracious wahoo. The new lures weigh in at 6
ounces, with a bright highly polished head and big red eyes recessed
into their bullet shaped head. The lures have a spinner blade
attached to the hook via a swivel for added flash on a fast
retrieve. Their 7/0 single hooks are VERY sharp and made to
penetrate the beak on a 'hoo. They are rigged on 135#
multi-strand cable, as they should be. They're double crimped where
it counts, at the attaching point's swivel and at the hook. But,
any other lure, they are better rigged with chafing tube where it's
needed, glow beads and multi-crimp thru the area a wahoo will be
putting their teeth into action. They also make use of a
stainless steel hook, not a lesser quality DT. So, they will hold up thru
multiple fish without need to re-rig! Look 'em over closely and you
can see why these are the best bombs on the market today. In the
small picture above you can compare the new Tormenter to the Catchy
Bomb. The Catchy has become the standard for this type of lure, nice
lures indeed. The new Tormenter improves upon the rigging, adds a
bit of weight for a faster drop and longer cast, and of course those
nice big flashy eyes.

Catchy Wahoo Bombs!
Tackle has introduced an excellent wahoo bomb! Their new bomb weighs in at 4 ounces and comes rigged on wire cable
with a single hook (the preference for dealing with wahoo). The bombs
also have a nice willow leaf spinner blade attached to a swivel on the
hook for added attraction, and a Keeper above the jig to keep it from
sliding up the line too far from the hook (a very good idea since the
lure will tend to ride up the line after a cast as you let it descend a
bit prior to ripping it back to the boat.
There are three variations to the
lures. The standard chrome head version features a double skirt of
flashy material. These bombs are effective,
well proven over the past 8 or so years, and quite
popular. Catchy did their homework prior to manufacture. The heads are
typical Catchy quality, meaning EXCELLENT and DURABLE.
Tackle Spinner Bombs
burst onto the sportfishing scene with a unique spinner jet head that
proved exceptionally productive for many species of fish. Their
Spinner Bombs have proven tops in their class, without question.
For the 'hoo,
Catchy offers two sizes of lures, both with bright reflective skirts, which can be used casting or trolling. Their best use is as
a casting bomb, I think. If you're going long range, stick a few of these in your
tackle bag. From $24-25, it's a good value, and a uniquely productive lure. Also, if
you are targeting the big hoo, you might also consider using their larger marlin size

Big Game, Very Big Game - Marlin, BIG Wahoo...
for 2004, and popular ever since... Catchy introduced several WAHOO skirts for their very
popular and successful Magnum 26's. We're very pleased to be the
first dealer to introduce these exciting new products to anglers
worldwide. The new lures feature both an inner Newell skirts and
Mylar material on the outside for an even better presentation to
hungry, aggressive and tasty 'hoo. There's no more productive
lure on the market for wahoo, that's a certainty. Between the
spinner blade churning up the water, the super reflective skirt
material drawing serious attention from sight oriented predators,
there's just not another lure on the market that can duplicate what
these things will do for you. Troll 'em quickly for the strike
you've been hoping for, and get set for action! The new lures
run $59.99, and they're worth every penny.
just don't do these lures justice, with their super flashy tinsel,
hammered leaf spinner, it's one attention getting lure, and a really
great value. And,
that's just what the wahoo like! These lures are appropriately
rigged for their quarry, with wire. The hook is rigged
close to the heavy head on it's own swivel - good idea for wahoo.
The Wahoo Bomb is another well planned product, from
a very innovative manufacturer. This lure works effectively
trolled or cast. These are not some cheap import, they're made
right here in California. They are not quite as well
built as either the Catchy or Burns Bombs, but they are a well
constructed inexpensive alternative. They'll get bit. These lures are an excellent value.
