ROOSTERFISH - Nematistius pectoralis
Roosterfish are native to the pacific from San Clemente, CA to Peru and the Galapagos Islands but rare north of Baha. We have tried for them in other places but this trip was just inside the Sea of Cortez north of Cabo and south of La Paz. The book says they go to five feet and up to 80 pounds. Attitude is not mentioned.
