Nice fish! Looks like an awesome trip.
Man that makes me want to get on some salty water again!
Haven't been to Costa Rica but sure would like to get down there for some bruiser rooster's on light tackle.
Done in it in Baja a few times, I highly recommend it if you haven't done it.
Med heavy bass rod a 2500 or 3000 spinning reel and a 30 pound rooster= sore arm, lots of sweat and a reel you could fry an egg on
