The Captains, crew, and staff of FishingNosara
On January 16 our new friends Patrick and Rebecca Peltier has a nice day of action on the Discoverer, highlighted by a pair of Sailfish releases.
On top of that they scored a pair of beefy Dorados. These tasty monsters will make a fine dinner, just wait for us to filet them first!
One of the unique things about fishing in Nosara is that even our trash fish are freaking huge. Don’t believe me? Check out the hulk of this Barracuda nabbed by the Explorer:
Obviously no meat value here, but still a memorable catch.
The Explorer put on a show for Maurycy Krzastek of Poland with a wonderful day of action on January 12.
The fish were fired-up as the Super Panga released not one but TWO Mighty Marlins.
This amazing feat was backed-up with plenty of Dorados so these boys will be fed.
Great work by Captain Fico and the barroom brawler!
The Discoverer welcomed anglers Douglas Gawthrop and Tom Hacker for an action-packed morning half day on January 12.
This big Black Marlin is truly the fish of a lifetime, and was a sign of good fishing to come. A nice Sailfish release followed:
The trophy fishes were backed up by a few nice Dorados for the dinner table.
Amazing action for just a half day!
Denmark‘s own Soren and Marianne Dalberg-Pedersen had a big day with Captain William, highlighted by a pair of awesome Marlin releases:
They added a big Dorado for the icebox, and all of this happened on just a 5 hour half day!
Thomas Coyle joined the Discoverer for an afternoon half day on the 8th, and this angler from New York City performed brilliantly with this excellent Sailfish release:
The Wanderer delivered a great inshore experience for the Christine Franz group on January 5. First order of business was to acquire live-bait, and this 5lbs. Bonita fit the bill perfectly.
This morsel was re-hooked and sent to the bottom, where it was inhaled by this beautiful Rooster Fish:
Safe released as always, this tactic proves again why Captain William is a true master!
Greg Patts had a monster day on the Harvester with multiple big Yellowfin Tunas reported on January 3.
Captain Alex is one of our most experienced boatmen and these Yella fellas provided a perfect opportunity to continue the training of our newest Mate Wilson.
As an added bonus, Mr. Patts nabbed this big Dorado to bring some diversity to the filet bag.
Great work by the mega panga!
Ronald Wade’s family couldn’t resist spending a morning half day on the Discoverer on January 2, and it turns out that the fish couldn’t resist the battleship’s spread.
Nice work by Captain Carlos to deliver these nice Dorados and Yellowfin Tunas.
Captain Alex and angler Gregory Patts kicked off a three day blue water campaign on January 2, and things got off to a quick start with a sweet Sailfish release.
After the safe release the mega panga scored a big Dorado for the dinner table.
Great work by Captain Alex!
