Roosterfish

SEASON: April-July

The roosterfish, is a game fish common in the marine waters surrounding Mexico,Costa Rica, and Panama, and in the eastern Pacific, from California to Peru.  It is distinguished by its "rooster comb", seven very long spines of the Dorsal fin.

Rooster fish can reach 4 feet in length and over one hundred pounds. The weight of the average fish hooked is about 20 pounds. The fish is popular as a game fish, but like most fish in the jack family (besides the amberjack and California Yellowtail) it is not considered a good eating fish.  The rooster Fish is explosive when hooked and stands out as one of the top game fish for just the shear joy of catching one on light tackle.  There are few fishing experiences that match that of fighting a large rooster fish on ultra light gear.
