Welcome to another thrilling adventure on CuracaoTodo.com, your ultimate guide to the best activities and experiences on the beautiful island of Curaçao. Today, we dive into the exhilarating world of wahoo fishing, a must-try for fishing enthusiasts visiting our island.

The Wahoo: A Speedy Predator

What is a Wahoo?

The wahoo, locally known as “Mula,” is the second fastest fish in the world’s oceans, capable of reaching speeds up to 60 miles per hour. This ferocious predator can be recognized by its elongated body covered with small, scarcely visible scales. The wahoo’s back is an iridescent blue, while its sides are silvery with vertical blue bars that fade rapidly after death. These characteristics make the wahoo a striking and impressive catch.

Physical Characteristics

Wahoos can grow rapidly, with some specimens reaching up to 2.5 meters (8 feet) in length and weighing up to 83 kilograms (180 pounds). Their growth rate is astonishing; one tagged specimen grew from 5 kilograms (11 pounds) to 15 kilograms (33 pounds) in just one year. The wahoo’s large mouth and sharp jaws set it apart from similar species like the king or Spanish mackerel.
