In relation to the roosterfish with the billfish, the roosterfish has a disinterest in the highly visible water since its habitat is in the flat parts of the gulf with a rocky or sandy bottom, so the murky water is the perfect condition for roosters, instead the sailfish and mahi mahi, it is necessary to have optimal conditions in clarity of water for its capture.

    fishing with my sonReviewed on TripAdvisor - April 7, 2017

    Booked 3 days of fishing in advance hoping it would be great. Wound up catching everything from tuna to grouper to snappers and jacks. Had so much fun catching jack's the third day that they offered to take us out for a fourth on a smaller Bahamas boat with spinning rods. Great time and definitely a great crew.
