Sportfishing Lite

Heading out into open water
I note this as sportfishing "lite" since the boat I chartered wasn't really set up to fish for Marlin. We were however set up to fish for Roosterfish and Dorado (i.e. Mahi-Mahi or Dolphinfish), although on this day we would be lead to believe that there were no Dorado in the immediate waters of Cabo San Lucas.

I really just wanted to dabble in sportfishing, and I certainly didn't want to wake up at 5am and then be on the water for 8 hours, although I did like the idea of a shared boat. But, shared boats are 8 hour trips, so I opted to charter a 17' "Panga" with Mr. Peter. We departed the marina at 1pm and would be out for three hours or so. A "Panga"can accommodate three people on board, but there were just two of us. The charter would cost USD $150.

In the end, we caught one Roosterfish and had a second one on the line briefly, but that would be it for the three hours on the water.

A little over two feet long and weighed about 25 pounds. Put up a good fight, it ran three times after I started reeling in.
