My wife and I went down to La Paz, Mexico (the Roosterfish Capital of the world) for her birthday. We booked out trip with www.tailhunter-international.com (tailhunter international) and when we booked it We set out to fish for 3 days with 3 goals.... yellowfin tuna, large roosterfish and a marlin of any color (black, blue or striped). Day 1 we caught small football sized tuna, dorado and bait fish. Day 2 my wife caught more tuna, and not just any tuna, she outfished EVERY single angler on the water that day with a 65lb yellowfin beast! Took her and hour to reel it in but never handed the rod off..... Day 3, we set out to go for rooster or Marlin.... we hooked into 2 roosterfish right at about the same time, My wife was unable to reel hers in due to her arms and wrists still like Jello from the day before with the tuna. I reeled both her and I's rooster in and they weighed in at 55 lbs and 60 lbs and yes my wife's was bigger..... After we got a photo of them and released them back in the water we set sail out past the island for Marlin..... 5 mins in we nailed a marlin... wait, my wife nailed a marlin.... again she tried to fight it for about 15 mins and was getting NO WHERE so she passed the rod off to me and I fought the 200 lbs beast for an hour and brought him to the boat. We had full intention to release him but he came to the boat draggin blood so we kept him....... Thats our story and here are our pics!
