Capt. Mike Weinhofer fishes soft plastics to capitalize on wahoo bites when trolling 2 to 5 knots. He fishes light drags and lets the 'hoo make a big first run with the boat in gear. Though most Williamson soft baits come pre-rigged, he outfits the Williamson Live Mackerel with a short piece of No. 10 wire near the swivel. Other wahoo will attack the swivel, even skirts in front of baits, which leads to cutoffs. The most important item to take when offshore fishing soft plastics is a bottle of superglue. "I have reglued baits that look like Frankenstein's creations, but I wouldn't trade them," he says.
