Tight Lines y Pura Vida!

The Captains, crew, and staff of FishingNosara

This month we suffered a loss in the Nosara Paradise Rentals family.

Danilo Montero Murillo was tragically lost in a traffic accident on June 30 2015. He was 45 years old, was a council member for the district of Nosara and owner of Mini Super Vida in the Los Arenales neighborhood.

He was also a masterful builder and was the project lead for the construction of Casa Bonita and the attached Mini Store in Playa Guiones:


In November 2009 he released this excellent Black Marlin on the Wanderer, the second ever Marlin release for the then-new flagship.

Our prayers are with Danilo’s family and friends during this difficult time.

Pura vida Danilo!

Mackenzie Bateman, Chris Skinner, and Lucy Sullivan took to the super panga on June 27 and brought the house down with this beautiful Double Sailfish release:

They scored many more Sailfish throughout the trip.

Great work by the super panga.

June 26, 2015

Roy Starling and his son returned to the Adventurer on the 26th and scored more tasty morsels for the fishbox.

This Yellowtail Snapper is a real whopper, plus the Snappers are nothing to sneeze at either!

Jason Sandmaier and his son performed beautifully on the Adventurer on the 21st, so much so that two days later they brought the ladies along for a day with Captain Carlos on the Explorer.

The super panga delivered the goods with five Sailfish released throughout the trip.

Excellent fish-handling by Mate Kevin to see all these fish safely released.

Great work by this fun fishing family.

On Father’s Day, The Adventurer celebrated by scoring a full buffet of filets for Jason Sandmaier and his son.

Captain Fico is an expert at nailing multiple species on a single day. Great work by the 23-foot pocket knife.

The mighty Wanderer delivered the goods for Gary Pickel and his family with a MASSIVE Black Marlin release:

This beast hit the hook just after 9am and put up a 30 minute fight leading to a safe release.

After the safe release by First Mate Alex, they scored a nice pair of Sailfish:

Then they backed up the monster billfish with a slew of big Yellowfin Tunas…Captain William knows that you follow the birds and the porpoises to the land of giant Yella Fellas:

Great fish-hunting by Master Captain William and the flagship Wanderer.

The Adventurer became a home for a week of Father Day celebrations with lots of Father/son teams scoring excellent fish.

Howard Hirsch and his son nabbed some tasty morsels with Captain Fico on June 19th.

Definitely looks like these boys brought home the bacon!

June 18, 2015

Scott Ramsay brought the family along for a great day of fishing on the Discoverer.

These Alabama anglers followed up a morning Sailfish release with a sweet stack of Yella Fellas.

June 17, 2015

Angler Roy Starling and his boy also scored big this Father’s Day week on the Adventurer. Check out this tasty Cubera Snapper:

June 17, 2015

The Discoverer‘s hot streak continued with a sweet morning Sailfish release.

Later in the day they piled up a nice pile of filets from Yellowfin Tuna, Dorado, and Snapper:

Great variety from Captain David on the battleship.
