Subject: What Are The Sporting Qualities Of A Roosterfish In Los Suenos?
(Posted on Mar 12, 2014 at 03:00PM by Lee Byard)

roosterfish in los suenos costa ricaFew can deny the beauty of the Roosterfish. This Los Suenos breed features a spiny plume, with fins rising along its back and highlighting its striped body. It’s a favorite of anglers, due to its bright coloring and unique appearance.

It’s also popular because of its sporting quality profile.


The Roosterfish is not known for its strength. It rarely exceeds 25 pounds and has a compact frame, making it perfect for small-grade tackle.


The Roosterfish is exceptionally quick and can maintain speeds of up to 42 miles per hour.


The Roosterfish is a near-surface fighter, trying to break lines with quick sprints and sudden turns.

A Roosterfish is an excellent option for first-time fishermen, proving itself to be powerful - but manageable - prey. Small-grade tackle is appropriate when chasing the Roosterfish. All rods should be properly mounted, however, to keep them steady when this creature begins to fight.
