Thumbs up 122 Lbs Wahoo + 30 other ones in 3 days alone !!

Returning from a 9 days trip in a new spot , scouting and looking for possible big Wahoos to spear , my partner ~G~ just send me some few photos from his trip ...

here are some few ones ..

On 9 days trip the weather there was ok only for 3 days ...

He was alone to spear , alone in the water , with a local boat and his captain.
Each day 10 wahoos were landed ..all good sizes..

like this day :



Few nice size ones were land such as one 110 Lbs each day





and the best one land was this 122 Lbs :






it is not a World Record but seems to be the 2nd largest Wahoo ever ? speared , land and weighted w a certified scale .

Sorry Cam yr 119 is now in 3rd

As far as he told me over the phone , he has lost 2 very big ones ..

an estimated 60 kgs = 132 Lbs one was speared and has left with all :shaft , bungee ,float and disappear ..

The day the 122 Lbs was land ..the last one speared was the one he was looking for !! an estimated 80 kgs = 175 Lbs ..

But he was not lucky with this one ...the 30 Bronze Whalers that were cruising around all day and were not really interested in attacking ..just decide to eat this big one!!!

Who knows why ??

certainly more photos to come when i ll meet him in 2 weeks from now.

all the bests ...

Be careful there is a loaded gun in the boat on the 2nd pic, there was recently an accident in a similar situation. Nice fish!

Mayhem.. those are the best Wahoo pictures I've seen.

What about a Cooler? After sitting in the sun all afternoon....

I'm designing a new Soft Cooler Fish Bag for you. The 'G' Model. It will be 2OOcm long and carry 6 Big Wahoo. Until then, a simple Surfboard Bag packed with ice would be good for your catch. Maybe in your case one of those Multi-Board Bags with the wheels..Carry all your spear gear in it on the way out and then pack it with fish on the way back.

Amazing diving. 'G' is Da man.

~G~ is a Professional spearo & fisherman in French Polynesia (with fishing licence) and as such he is selling the fishes to the local population where he is ..or giving it ..depend ..All those were sold ,it is a little money back regarding the expenses involved in a ``private trip to a remote location``.
i estimate the 9 days trip cost to 4000 Usd + excess of luggage..
so the 2200 / 2500 lbs fishes sold might ? have cover this expenses....or part of it..

Jon , thanks for the soft fish bag offer ..but he has already one marlin or tuna bag but do not travel with ..being already overweight for planes ..

in some place the local boat get a very large cooler custom made on board
and some are not ..

we really think that this 122 Lbs could be weighting few more Lbs if was saved in Ice instead from drying all day like this ..but we are not sure ..never did some testing about that ..but certainly one day we should!!

For the moment Bruce Gaudino and his 125 Lbs WR is still leading..

PS : in Most those Remote places ..there is NO ice !! only Coconuts!!
and big fishes ..
