George heads back to the beautiful Bahamas Island of San Salvador, where during his last and only visit prior to this trip he scored his personal best wahoo to date – a 143-pound, three-ounce monster! This time he’s back in late April and targeting yellowfin tuna and dolphin aboard Over Under's “Low Profile”. The local waters come alive with tuna and big dolphin during the spring, and George and Trey find plenty of cooperative fish. Keeping the fish biting requires the team to troll a mix of natural baits, pure artificials, and lure/bait combos, and frequently adjust the size of these baits, their positioning and trolling speeds; Once hooked up, it takes muscle and speed to keep their catches from being devoured by the sharks! The twist here, ironically, is that while trolling back to the Riding Rock Marina after a successful trip, George scores another gargantuan wahoo – a fish tipping the scale at 113-pounds, two-ounces!

Diana Banks Wahoo Fishing
DIANA BANKS, BAHAMAS, WAHOO - George Poveromo teams up with Over Under Adventures president Trey Rhyne on an incredible long-range Bahamas trip to the remote Diana Bank. Poveromo and Rhyne boarded the Over Under at Sumner Point Marina on Rum Cay and travelled 70 miles south to Albert Town on Long Cay where they anchored overnight. The following morning finds them 21 miles offshore and trolling for wahoo over Dian Bank, an underwater mountain that rises to within 50 feet from a surrounding depth of 4,000 feet. Tactics covered include how to choose, rig & troll the best wahoo lures, along with how to recognize the right conditions and areas that produce a hot bite.
Blue Marlin Fishing out of Crooked Island, Bahamas - ESPN
CROOKED ISLAND, BAHAMAS, BLUE MARLIN - George is back in the far southeastern Bahamas, this time chasing blue marlin off Crooked Island. Fishing aboard the Over Under Adventures’ 54-foot Bertram with Trey Rhyne, president of the charter operation, the pair trolls a spread of Bluewater lures and teasers along the precipitous drop-off that parallels the island’s northwestern tip. Their reward: a hot marlin bite! At night, the boat anchors off Crooked, where Poveromo and Rhyne have fun chumming up aggressive sharks. George gets one to eat a topwater plug, while Trey gets more than he bargained with a monster hooked on heavy tackle!
