Dale Rehus scored the biggest Rooster Fish release of the season on August 14.
This is a no-doubter 100+lbs. fish. The IGFA all-tackle record is 51.71kg (114lbs.) and I think this one is in the conversation.
A nice Sailfish release also reflected nicely on the scorecard.
Great work by Captain Fico and the barroom brawler Explorer.

Craig Sutton and Javier went fishing on the 11th with Captain Fico, along with a special guest: Javier’s seven-year old son Dario.

Great work by young Dario!
