The inshore fishery for roosters and jacks could be considered incredible, if it wasn’t for the high surf which has been hitting us. On the days the surf is low, the catches are fantastic. On one day, Adolfo on the panga Dos Hermanos released 15 roosters for his clients from Spain. A few days earlier, under a high surf condition, he fished with Jake Kraus from Fort Collins, CO.

This is how Jake described his 50 pound rooster and the day he had with Adolfo: “The fish came right out of the top of the breaking wave and racing down the back side with his fins out of the water and crushed the popper! It was absolutely awesome to watch! That's exactly what I came down for and why I love to fish for the Roosters!
Unfortunately we didn't get into any other Rooster action. But, we were on other fish the ENTIRE day! We had two Sierra slam our poppers. One very big one that came unhooked at the boat. The birds started working out from the break so we headed out to them and caught Jacks and Black Skipjack Tuna for 4 hours straight! My right arm has been a little sore ever since.
Fishing with Adolfo is exactly what I've been looking for in a Mexican Captain. I've never been a fan of trolling and letting the deck hand catch the fish. I have always loved to cast and be involved with the catching and that is exactly what Adolfo does! We worked very hard all day…”

Don and Mary Grantges of Texas (and have a condo here) fished with Cheva on the Dos Hermanos II getting several jacks off the back side of the waves, and a few small dorado about ½ a mile off the beach, keeping two for dinner.
