Captain Fico and Mate Elias have turned in a fantastic year of fishing on the Explorer, and they closed out the season with a BANG!

They released a swarm of Sailfish in late August, and also added this excellent Rooster Fish release.

The fishbox stayed full with reports of Yellowfin Tuna and a big Amberjack.

Amazing action from the barroom brawler!

August 15, 2016

The Explorer snatched up a little bit of everything in mid-August. They pulled a double trophy release with this Sailfish and Rooster fish on the same trip:

Then they paired another Rooster fish release with a full fishbox of filets:

The Super panga is on a hot streak and continues to create converts to Extreme Panga fishing.

Russell Brewster struck again with an offshore haul that included a big Dorado and some nice Yellowfin Tuna on ice backed up by a super Sailfish releases.

Captain Alex has the Harvester dialed-in and her late season performance his year has been staggering.

Excellent work by the Mega Panga.

“Rooster fish mania!” writes Ed Smith. “Went out with Carlos and Juan Carlos on the Discoverer today, made bait and turned every bait into a fish.”

“Here are a few of the better ones. Plus a few shots of the tools used today, raised a marlin and sail fish off shore.”

“Was great fishing with Carlos again!”

Ashley Sheppard brought the family along for a fun day of inshore fishing on the Explorer.

This sweet Yellowtail Snapper was the highlight of the haul. Great work by this posse of youngsters.

August 15, 2016

On August 15 the big battleship Discoverer stayed inshore for a Rooster fish firefight!

Three beautiful release will certainly fill the trophy room for Russell Brewster and his posse…great work by Captain Carlos and Mate Juan Carlos.

Craig was back on the Harvester for a mega Marlin day on August 13 with fellow angler Lloyd Michael.

The first Blue Marlin snagged two baits and was simultaneously hooked by Craig and Lloyd!

After a safe release by Mate Kevin a second Marlin entered the spread and fought bravely, spitting the hook after putting on a fireworks show next to the boat.

Awesome hunting by Captain Alex and the Harvester!

The Harvester found gold with Craig Sutton nabbing at 150+lbs. Yellowfin Tuna on August 12.

Craig casted for this monster over a pod of spinning porpoises and brought him home with an efficient 25 minute fight on a Penn Slammer spinning reel.

It’s rare to see a fish the Captain Alex can’t lift off the deck, but this one fits the bill.

Fellow anglers Kim and Lloyd Michael were on board and scored an excellent Sailfish release, plus added their own meat with a 50+ lbs. Dorado.

Great day on the Mega Panga!

August 12, 2016

More great catches reported by the Discoverer. On August 12 Captain Carlos reports this sweet Sailfish release backed up by a nice Rooster fish release:

Nice fishing from the battlship!
