The Christmas Island guys nail these within sight of the reef on the North shore pretty regularly - nobody was targetting them on flies though - the guides wanted as many lines trolling as possible - deep water trips are meat trips out there!

When I was there last year the guides came in most evenings with Wahoo in the 60 - 70lb class - defeinite world record fly prospects for anyone with the time and $$$ to soend. Awesome fish and one of the fastest in the ocean!

The yellowfin were pretty impressive too.
