Milkfish, Chanos chanos: Caught during a fishing trip by Drew Bailey Henderson at the Marietas Islands, Puerto Vallarta, Jalisco, Mexico, June 8, 2005, with Capt. Fredy, The Magnifico, Bloodhound Charters. Locally called "sabalo." Caught in about 20 feet of water: "The fish was actually foul hooked as we were fishing lures across a school of fish, at the time we were catching a lot of bonitas, hookies (what they crew called them), and red snapper. It put up a very good fight and made a nice leap out of the water when initially hooked." Description and photo courtesy Drew Bailey Henderson. Fish identification courtesy John Snow.
