Our annual fall 7-day trip was booked with lots of Searcher Sportfishing regulars so anglers greeted each other bright and early yesterday morning! Here’s the perfect opportunity to use all the valuable gear collected in between trips. Exciting!


Jim H and Joanne C wasted no time getting their gear ready!

Trip Report

Trip 27 (7 day) Sep 25-Oct 2 The Ridge

Hello anglers: We had a great morning fishing wahoo! Everyone had landed 1 or 2 wahoo for the trip and we all had a great time this morning. We had lots of opportunities to land one on casting lures, wahoo bombs, raider lures, and trolling marauders. We saw lots of fish and of course, the losses are part of the game with wahoo.

Craig Gantz is pictured with his nice wahoo–it’s at least 50 pounds.trip27craigwahoo

There was fresh sushi and sashimi for afternoon snack and fresh wahoo for dinner!
Team Searcher


This is crewman Ben’s first season with Team Searcher — his first long-range job. This is his first wahoo! Congrats, young Ben!
