After three full days of fishing, angler Chuck Hanford saved the best for last with a MAMMOTH Rooster Fish release on his final day of action.
This monster is a legit 60lbs., proven by Captain Alex’s boca grip.
Great work by the mega panga to photograph and release this monster.
The Harvester delivered the goods with angler Chuck Hanford reporting an excellent Rooster Fish release on the 4th.
We catch and release these beauties year-round, but they seem to be especially aggressive this time of year.
The battleship Discoverer went on a two-way mission on February 3. Early in the trip they headed offshore to do battle with a pair of lovely Sailfish.
After the safe releases, Captain Carlos headed inshore for a super Rooster Fish release.
Mark Cooney and George Pile ended the month with Captain Fico, and they scored two fish-of-a-lifetime…first up was this Striped Marlin:
The real monster was this gigantic Rooster Fish:
Amazing action on these trophy releases!
Captain Alex continued to post results in late January, including this inshore conquest of fat Rooster Fish.
The Wanderer delivered a great inshore experience for the Christine Franz group on January 5. First order of business was to acquire live-bait, and this 5lbs. Bonita fit the bill perfectly.
This morsel was re-hooked and sent to the bottom, where it was inhaled by this beautiful Rooster Fish:
Safe released as always, this tactic proves again why Captain William is a true master!
Captain William welcomed Dan Johnson for blue water battles on December 16. The day started with a healthy Dorado leading to fresh sushi and cold beer for lunch.
Later in the day the flagship nabbed more Dorados backed up by a nice Rooster fish release.
The Harvester stayed close to shore on the 11th as high winds offshore make the blue water unreachable. Captain Alex still delivered the trophy fish goods with this excellent Rooster fish scored by Justin Dukes.
Craig Sutton and our old friend Roche had a wonderful day with Captain Fico which included a monster 75+lbs. Rooster Fish release:
Several sweet Yellowfin Tunas also found their way to the icebox. Great work by the barroom brawler.
Captain Fico and Mate Elias continued their strong fishing into late November, delivering the goods for clients Wayne Estes and Mauri Elledge.
This Rooster Fish release is a true bucket list-worthy monster.
They also brought the kids out for a family trip to the fish market. Great work ninos!
