Hey Jim,

Where the heck were you, when I was trying to get some guys together to go Surf Fishing with me, at leat 5 years ago?? LOL

I am in Manzanillo as I speak and the water is very cold and not many fish around. I will be home, San Juan Cosala, end of May. If you would like come on up have a cup of coffee and I will show you my equipment and what I use. You do not need expensive equipment to get started. My rods are made in New Zealand and Austrailia and custom built in New Jersey, and very expensive because fishing is my passion. I use Spinning reels with 30-50# braided lines.

Chillin, is right, about having to cast 100 yards or sometimes that isn't enough depending on the huge waves. I have actually fished with the guy Chillin is speaking of. As I am getting older I am leaning more towards renting a Panga for most of my Ocean fishing. Think I still got a couple of fair to good years left in me though. SURF FISHING - Page 2 87465

Saludos,
Pescasdor

Thats a BIG FISH Pescasdor.........What is the record size/weight? How long does it take to land a fish like this? I'm sure many FOP'S @ Lakeside would need to tag team one of these......LMAO

Hey Jim,

According to IGFA, the World Record was caught in June 1960, at La Paz, Baja California, Mexico. Roosterfish weighed 114 Pounds. Not a lot of info about this fish, other than the guys name and how much it weighed.

The photo of the guy catching the Roosterfish on the beach, is of a very good frind of mine. I was not with him at the time, but I would guess it took about 45 minutes to an hour to land this fish. Of course this depends on your equipment, and the skill of the fisherman. You don't land these babies in a couple of minutes, they will take you up and down the beach, sometimes more than a quarter of a mile! NO JOKE!!

I am happy I got your interest, I could talk Rooster Fishing all day long! lol!

Talk later,

It isn't that I am into surf fishing but when you guys started discussing it the other day, it dawned on me that I didn't know what a Rooster was. I am one of those idiots who enjoys learning about new things, so I did some looking. Way back in the 70's, I had my one and only surf fishing experience with a customer and the rest of the wackos on South Padre Island. Decided very quickly that the "good ole boys" with their truck mounted fish fighting chairs and huge rods were a breed unto themselves. Educational experience but not something of great interest.

My fishing interests are pretty much limited to trout and salmon.

Did a lot of shore fishing in Central America in the 70's. At one point, living in a cabana ON the bay in Gulfito Costa Rica, caught a rooster from my front porch. They are the hardest fighting fish I have ever seen.

Hey Chillin,

I am not getting old, I AM OLD . SURF FISHING - Page 2 87465 But I am at the beach right now, and the water is wayyyy too cold for the roosters, and yes, I sure do enjoy sharing fishing experiences. Would love to hear some of your Surf Fishing stories, unless of course you are fishing.

Hey RoofBob,

Sounds like you had a GREAT time fishin in those days. I lived in Western New York and just fished fresh water Lakes, 'til moving to Mexico in 2004. Never even heard of a Rooster Fish, until I started learning how to Surf Fish.

Have you ever caught a Jack Crevalle? They are one strong fish and will make your arms just ache, after landing a couple 25-30 pounders. Very Happy

Too Funny! Probably would have done the same with that experience. lol!

My fishing interests are pretty much limited to trout and salmon.

I also like to fish for trout and Salmon, pretty hard here in Mexico. Maybe a trout here and there in some stocked ponds. Think there is a place at Matzamitla that has stocked trout pond, not for me though.

Used to fish some of the tributaries to Lake Ontario for big browns and Salmon.

Sorry, Back to Surf Fishing. cheers

Pescador, you and Chillin have different preferences in reels, You spinning with braided line, while chillin appears to prefer sidecast and mono? Since I am a newbie, thinking about getting outfitted why one over the other, or is it personal preference?

I am mostly a big river/estuary fisherman. There is some mighty rivers in British Columbia. The West Coast of Vancouver Island is pretty wild too - a lot like Mayto probably

I bought the surf setup for a technique I invented using a sideplaner to pull diving plugs in the river. You get started from the bank, and it catches the current and can work 100's of yards of river. If you get a strike, the sideplaner collapses.

The no stretch mono is recommended by Alvey - less line twist?

Here is another fishing blog I have been stumbling through, with the help of google translate. He has some excellent money saving tips - how to make a sand spike, how to make a finger protector. Somewhere on there are some incredible pictures of 'fine art' handpainted lures.

Worked the sport boats out of San Diego during summer vacations from high school - crew 1/2 day, fish 1/2 day free! Got drafted, got out, worked on some commercial boats rock cod and fishing albacore with bamboo poles. Then in '70 crewed on a 95' luxury fishing yacht in the Gulf of California, unbelievable. Then it was off to Costa Rica via train through Mexico packing mask, snorkle, fins, spreader spear, Garcia Mitchell 300 w/12 lb. test,100 Scampy heads, 300 tails and stayed for 7 months, came back to the states then pulled the same number for the next 6 years. Never caught a Jack that big and wouldn't want to now but you're right, those suckers can straighten you right out.
