The roosterfish and jack crevalle action is still holding up well. Joe Pombrio of Seattle fly fished a day with Cheva and I on the panga Dos Hermanos. We had bad luck from the beginning. Going north, up to the Saladita and Ranch areas, the surf was so high we watched the long boarders get some great rides on the 12 foot plus waves. It was really unsafe a couple of times for us, and we couldn’t get in close to the beach to where the roosters were.
As the swells died down we worked our way back to Buena Vista and had high hopes for this excellent rooster spot. We no more than were getting set up and a pod of false killer whales came up the coastline on the backside of the waves. They were there for the roosters and jacks too, but they don’t release their catch.
|Note Joe's crease fly. An excellent imitation of a goggle eye|
Joe fished two more days, one with Cheva and one with Adolfo. He ended up hooking one rooster and breaking it off, and getting lots of nice jack crevalle.
