Just before Christmas, the beach here in Costa Rica experienced a sudden push of "gallo pescado" which means roosterfish in Spanish.
From more than a half mile away I could see the roosters (gallos) crushing sardines, mullet and mackerel on the surface. It looked like torpedo explosions.
I began running down the beach towards the action. I knew this would probably be my last chance to catch a big roosterfish from shore, before I had to fly home to Massachusetts.
The video above recaps the morning, which included hooking two big gallos/roosters, meeting a bunch of local kids, and enjoying an incredible morning of fishing on one of the most beautiful beaches in the country!

Tight lines and Happy New Year!
I’m fortunate to have grown up on the beach, and I’ve been fishing since kindergarten. I have great family, friends and fishing experiences to be thankful for. Just being out there is enough-catching fish is just a bonus!
