Cortez Grunt

Cortez Grunt fish picture 2

Cortez Grunt, Haemulon flaviguttatum: A male Cortez Grunt. Length 14 inches, Punta Colorada, East Cape, Baja California Sur, Mexico, caught with a Rapala, 8-pound line, from my panga, June 2000. A very brave little fish on light tackle. I had never discovered them until June 2000. Looking over the edge of my panga, it turned out there were thousands of them at that particular time and place.
