After making the 45-minute run to blue water, I added two sailfish releases and a dolphin to the day's tally. Then it was back inshore, where I concentrated on casting plugs for roosterfish and other species that live among rocks. It wasn't long before a three-foot houndfish was skipping across the foam-flecked surface, intent on devouring my pencil popper. But the fish wasn't fast enough, for the plug suddenly disappeared in a shower of spray that erupted alongside an underwater rock. A few minutes later, a 22-pound cubera snapper was gaffed aboard, completing an unexpected and trip-saving super grand slam in the waters off Crocodile Bay Resort, located on the western edge of Golfo Dulce.
