Wahoo wonder - First-time gulf angler hauls in wahoo at Grayton

Provow said she caught the fish on a 4/0 reel — "not a reel you go out trying to catch blue water fish like marlin."

"However what she had steal her red snapper was later to become our trophy fish," he said.

Provow said they were fishing about five miles south of Grayton on the bottom in 80-feet of water.

"The catch was a very rare catch, but even rarer was the fact that SueEllen had never (gulf) fished before and was having to hold the pole and reel as fast as she could as I chased the fish down," he said.

Once the fish was onboard The Tailhooker, they headed in as the black clouds started to roll in.

"The waves were huge," SueEllen said.

However the waves were not bigger than the smiles on the Broussard family as they posed for photos with the catch once their feet were firmly planted on the beach.
