1. Live Baiting on the edge and other currents with heavy bait concentrations -
    While live bait is somewhat plentiful in the Bahamas is somewhat plentiful, it can sometimes be tough to catch as it might be in the midst of reefy bottom that will destroy a cast net, but if you are equipped and can get the proper baits.....
     Make up wire rigs with as light of wire as you feel comfortable with. Use Coffee Colored wire around #6 which will be around 55lb test. Rig a 6/0 live bait hook with a treble hook trailing around five inches back. It is best to make these rigs only 2 feet long and use an Albright Special to tie it to some 80lb flourocarbon leader which should give you a leader length of between five and seven feet. No need for a super long leader as it is best to not allow an inexperienced wire man to handle the wahoo as many people lose this fish exactly because they do. 
     Either hook your bait at the front in a proper method that will allow him to swim and breathe as you gently move the boat forward (to move in and out of deeper water), or use a harness as shown on the Live Bait Fishing Page. A simple harness can also be made of monel wire pushed through the forehead of the bait and twisted together tightly at the top of the forehead. Simply turn your live bait hook sideways to pass the tip and the barb between the fish and the wire. The hook should really point upwards when finished.
     Slide your baits into the water, placing them as follows:
1. Left rigger with no weight and around 120 feet back (or where you can see it)
2. Right Rigger same as left.
3. Left flat line with 4 ounces of weight and around 100 feet of line out
4. Right flat line with 2 ounces of weight and around 80 feet of line out.
     Move your boat very slowly, going in and out of gear (unless you have trolling valves) and move only fast enough to keep the boat pointed in the correct direction as you do not wish to drown your baits
