I suspect the fish was named after the exclamation. Wahoos can weigh over 100 pounds and can swim at around 60 MPH. Having a fish that big swimming that fast on the end of your fishing line will definitely produce a loud exclamation of some sort. "Wahoo!" is one of the more socially acceptable of such exclamations. Naming a fish "Holy Fucking Shit!" might be met by a bit of social resistance.
