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 humk 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. Here are the best
specialty lures on the market, ones that have proven their worth in the
mouths of fish.
- 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.
bait is available in three sizes at present
80 gm, 2.8 oz, 5"
100 gm, 3.5 oz, 5 1/2"
150 gm, 5.29 oz, 6 1/2"
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. The Gold head and the
Chrome head also feature an internal Newell Skirt. The Newell skirts are
heavier, thicker, more durable and make the lure have a fuller presence
when quickly retrieved. These bombs are going to be effective, and quite
popular. Catchy did their homework prior to manufacture. The heads are
typical Catchy quality, meaning EXCELLENT and DURABLE. Unlike the
offshore produced stuff, these are well made and precision manufactured.
The chrome platting is all much better and will prove much more durable.
The Gold and Black Chrome heads are flawless and will prove well worth
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 $19-20, 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
lures. The 16 and 26 oz. product rigged appropriately, is proving it's worth on the
long range boats visiting points south. These lures are all
unrigged, but we can rig them up to your specifications (see info
below). (enter quantity below)

biggest Catchy's offer a unique spinner design, they also offer an
excellent premium skirt material too. These big game spinner
blade lures feature Newell Skirts, a heavier material for longer lived use when
inhaled and chomped by the big boys. The largest 16 ounce lures from the Spinner Jet
series are also designed for big gamefish, and use first rate Sevenstrand skirts. But,
these guys are something even more extreme as you can see. The biggest
Magnums are large, at a good 26 ounces. The picture shows two
different designs, a concave head on the three left ones, a bullet
head on the lure to the right. The new head option (concave
slant) is made for slower trolling while the bullet head lives on
speed. It will prove an effective lure from 6 up to 12
knots. By contrast the slant is better suited to 3-5
knots. In that application the slant/concave head magnums will
swing, dive, pop up, do all sorts of things to draw attention to
themselves. But, they should not be used at the faster speed the
bullet head is intended. Both lures produce a big bubble trail, churning up the
water with their blades. They work great as a teaser, or can be rigged for direct
strikes for the big boys. It's a unique product, with excellent
fishability, effective on a wide variety of gamefish. @$54.95
for 2004 Catchy has introduced several new 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 $54.99, 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.
