The Wanderer countered with a 400lbs. Marlin for client Roy Jackson.

They also backed it up with 4 Sailfish releases. All in a days work for the baddest boat in Garza!

Great catch on the battleship Discoverer! This awesome Blue Marlin release is truly the fish of a lifetime.

More details and photos to come…

Our main man Arturo took a break from running the North Guiones Beach office to do a little ‘research’ with Captain Fico on the Adventurer.

The little big man scored this hefty Rooster fish, then followed it up with a tasty Cubera Snapper for the dinner table.

Great work by Numero Uno!

Our good friend Eddie Showalter returned to Costa Rica for another foray into the blue water, and brought his friends Mike Neeland and Laura Lanoue.

Laura was thrilled to see that one of her prior conquests is immortalized in our Guiones Beach Office.

She repeated her Sailfish success on the Discoverer with this outstanding release:

She also added a fine Rooster fish release, and got an up close look at a mean old shark.

Ken Russell was back in action on the 14th and they once again threw down the gauntlet with some big mean Pacific Sailfish.

The action was hectic all morning, with four more releases added to the scorecard.

March 12, 2015

Ken and Brenda Russell hail from upstate New York and we were stoked to get them some much needed fun in the sun. Their last trip to Costa Rica was during our legendary late-August bite and saw them scored a single-day record of Marlin releases on the Explorer

This time the mighty Wanderer also treated them to multiple trophy fish releases. They started the day inshore with a hefty Rooster Fish release:

Then Captain William headed off-shore and got them out in front of a pack of hungry Sailfish.

The Sailfish were starving for bait and First Mate Alex was more than happy to feed them some fat ballyhoo with a side of 9/0 circle hooks!

Everyone on board got a release and it was all big smiles for the Russell group.

The Explorer has been torching it the last few weeks, highlighted with tons of Sailfish released.

Captain Carlos has his thumb on the map where Sailfish City lies, but trust me he knows the way very well.

Mate Kevin is really starting to distinguish himself has an excellent fisherman and fish-handler.

All these beasts were safe releases as always.

It’s not all just trophy fish on the Explorer…check out some of these filets for the frigerator:

Jacksonville’s own Hank Duckworth joined the mighty Wanderer for a half day trip, and like all our Northeast Florida anglers he tore it up on the formerly Mayport-flagged vessel.

They started off inshore with this excellent Amberjack:

Then Captain William headed to Sailfish City and Hank was ready to crank in a monster:

They added two more Sailfish near the end of the five hour trip.

Safe releases by First Mate Alex was the perfect end to a great trip for Hank Duckworth.

The Wanderer posted a great all around day on March 9 with some early Sailfish action off-shore.

All quickly caught and safely returned by First Mate Alex.

Captain William brought the flagship near to shore in the afternoon where they posted great results on Rooster Fish.


March 4, 2015

The Wanderer changed things up on March 4 by staying inshore and plying the reefs just outside Garza Bay.

A nice Rooster fish release was the first fish of the day, safe released like always.

Fast on the heels of this pez gallo release was another Rooster fish, this one much bigger than the first.

The third Rooster was the biggest of them all…check out the fight in the feathered fish!

Near the end of the trip they boated this MASSIVE Amberjack.

Great inshore action on the famous Wanderer!
