After 4 days of fishing in Panama, I was exhausted getting up on the 5th day. That all changed as soon as my first live bait (was using a good size blue runner) got SMACKED by a roosterfish. One of those reel screeching, rod-fully-bent kind of tugs that just wakes up your soul. That was exactly the kind of alarm clock I needed that morning. 😆
I was fishing alongside the Jackson Kayak Fishing team and our friend, Eric, from Deep Blue Kayak Fishing. What happens when you have some friendly competition while fishing?? Everyone gets to catching fish‼️ We caught 9 roosterfish total and had a great time out there — truly the perfect way to cap off our trip. 🐔
Have you ever caught a roosterfish? Is it one of your bucket list species? Drop a comment and let me know what ya think about this video, thanks guys!!
