Mario, our dockmaster got a call this morning from an excited panga captain, who asked him to come down and take a photo of a large rooster fish a client had caught with him. Happy to oblige Mario went down and came back with this:
|Captain Ivan hoists the roosterfish which is almost his size aloft - it weighed 75 lbs.|
Captain Ivan got an early start, despite the rain aboard his 22 ft panga "Gloria" with angler John Sato from Palm Springs, Ca. aboard and hooked up this beauty just fifteen feet from shore, on a live caballito at Cerros de Arena. John took 40 minutes to subdue this huge rooster on a Shimano TLD 15 spooled withe 30 lb test line. The fish weighed 75 lbs.
