How do you catch a Roosterfish?

Roosterfish are one of the most sought-after fish in Costa Rica. Roosterfish are an inshore species found over sandy bottoms, around rock and reef formations. When fishing for roosterfish we use live bait with casting or trolling, when hooked it is important to remember the harder you jerk the rod, the harder a roosterfish will fight. If you jerk the rod right after the bite, a roosterfish will shake the hook loose. With Roosterfish, it is important to have patience and slowly reel them in. .
