For the past few years I've been heading to Panama to chase big fish in little boats. This guy I got a few weeks ago on my last trip was my biggest and 18 cm from being the new world record.

Heckuva rooster, Irving. I've never caught one that big.

I've never heard of these fish until traveling to Panama and they have quickly become my favorite. They are like a bass on steroids. The little 2 foot and under roosters fight like he'll jumping out of water and putting on a hell of a acrobat show. And these big guys will give you a hell of a ride in a kayak or kick the crap out of you if you are in a boat. Kayak fishing in the ocean is almost like jug fishing except you are the jug getting pulled around

Probably about 20 minutes or so, based on the time the boat showed up and started recording

These guys we catch and release. More of a trophy fish, and not very good eating. Very bloody and supposedly a very mushy flesh

Roosters are great fun and that's a nice one. I fished for them a lot off Punta Arenas out of LaPaz with Rooster Bill. We caught some huge ones also.

I couldn't see your bait. We used Lady Fish but I've heard of poppers being popular in Central America.

Wow, unfortunately for me my biggest wouldn't even interest that Rooster as bait.

Congrats.
