The Wahoo season in Madeira is by far the best in Europe and if you have not yet hooked a Wahoo, then you are in for a treat, as these fish are simply known as the ‘Cheetah’s of the Sea’. The season is very short and runs from September to December, so spaces fill fast, as these specimens are fast becoming a very popular fish. As the Marlin Season winds down, people turn their minds to the Wahoo with great reason. The Wahoo is one of the fastest species in any seas and, once you have felt the sheer power of these beasts on stand up light gear, you will be hooked. You will fish with one of our best captains, who have been fishing these Madeira coastal waters for many years. Each day you will get to experience 8 hours of fishing. Methods used normally involve 20 to 30lb class rods and multipliers, trolling Rapala’s at high speed.
