Incredible day here at the Marina Pez Vela Costa Rica yesterday.
We had an amazing collection of boats & people working together to attach Satellite & electronic tags to Roosterfish. The participating boats were GOOD DAY, Pacific Fly, The Hooker, Double Nickle & Los Gatos.
Between us we managed to catch 9 Roosterfish up to 35-40lbs, plus some Mackerel, Jacks, Snapper & a Shark. All fish were tagged & released for Gray FishTag Research including 3 Roosterfish with Satellite or Electronic tags. We now need to wait 5 months before the Satellite Tag pops off so that we can get all of the important data to help us understand the fish’s movements, depth range etc. There are now 7 Roosterfish Swimming along the Pacific Coast of Costa Rica with electronic tags in them & there are some nice prizes from Costa Sunglasses up for grabs for anyone that catches a tagged fish.
Huge thanks to Gray FishTag Research, Gray Taxidermy, Los Gatos, Shadow Graphics, Big Oh, Dolphin Electric Reels, FECOP, Marina Pez Vela, Costa Sunglasses, Seaguar Flurocarbon, Southernmost Apparal & everyone else that came together to make this project a huge success.
