Breathtaking Roosterfish Leap

Share a Panama kayak angler’s perspective of what must be one of the highest jumps by a hooked roosterfish ever recorded.

Fábio (Baca) Fregona, a fishing journalist from Brazil, was fishing with friends off Panama’s Azuero Peninsula, with Panama Kayak Adventures when he caught on video this most breathtaking, unexpected high jump from a large roosterfish.
