Kirk Langenbach scored the first Marlin of the season for the FishingNosara team with the Master Captain William on the Wanderer.

This Blue Marlin was estimated to weigh 300lbs. by Mate Johnson upon the safe release.

Awesome job by Kirk and the whole Moody group on their fishing battles, and of course by the big blue beauty Wanderer.

December 6, 2016

Florida anglers Linda Moody and Kirk Langenbach enlisted Captain William for a three-day battle against blue water beasties on the Wanderer.

On the first day they got the deck bloody with a few nice Dorados.

You can see that their friend ‘Flat Jack’ joined them in spirit on this trip:

Flat Jack also enjoyed the amenities at Nosara Paradise Rentals, including an encounter with our furry mascot Bianca:

On day two they return to the flagship and this time scored a high-flying Sailfish:

Let’s see how that picture came out:

Captain William and Mate Johnson welcomed Daniel Johnson for a very productive day of offshore action. The highlight of the trip was this excellent Double Sailfish Release:

Nice to have Captain Fico of the Explorer along to lend an extra hand on this difficult fish-handling feat.

Later they had great success on a swarm of Yellowfin Tuna:

Todd Kieschnick found billfish success with Captain Carlos on December 3. This sweet Sailfish release was the highlight of the trip.

They also put some tasty Dorado filets on ice.

All in a days’ work for the big bad battleship.

December 2, 2016

The Discoverer welcomed aboard Catie Wilson and her group for a lovely day of meat-fish conquests.

They nabbed two Yellowfin Tunas and two Dorado, all with good size to them. Great work by Captain Carlos on the battleship!

December 1, 2016

Our new buddy Greg Patts whipped some fish butt on the Super Panga Explorer over a three day span. On November 29 he nabbed a nice Dorado, perfect to gnaw on for the  week.

Then on the 30th and 1st he extend his trips to full days so they could head offshore and hunt blue water beasties. Check out these sweet Sailfish releases:

Awesome work by Captain Fico and Mate Elias to deliver the goods!

November 26, 2016

The Wanderer scored big with Craig Sutton, Dave Leibowitz, and Brad Banner leading the charge against a fired-up school of Yellowfin Tuna.

In total they nabbed nine big Yella Fellas. Great work by the big blue beauty!

The Wanderer welcomed Richard Rileyfor a great half-day fishing adventure, highlighted by this high-flying Sailfish:

After the safe release they picked up a perfect filet-sized Yellowfin Tuna:

Great work by the mighty flagship!

November 19, 2016

The Bill Harris group put in some excellent work on the Harvester in mid-November. Early in the trip they nabbed this world-class Sailfish release:

Then Mr. Harris buried the hooks in a swarm of big Dorados.

Ever wonder how we come up with our shirt designs? Inspiration abounds:

The posse scored another excellent Sailfish release to finish off the trip:

Great job by the baddest panga in Costa Rica!

November 17, 2016

Tampa angler Bill Harris is a returning FishingNosara Hall of Famer and in mid-November he brought another great group of anglers to ply waters off of Nosara with Captain William on the flagship Wanderer.

In addition to Mr. Harris the Wanderer welcomed Joe Arriaga, Mark Scott, Brady Harris, Jimmy Erwin, and Ron Cox for three days of action. They started off inshore with some Bonitas and a nice Jack Crevelle, then on their second day headed offshore. Here is a shot of the new-look Wanderer taken from the Discoverer:

The Wanderer worked in tandem with the Discoverer to pluck some tasty Yellowfin Tunas from under this feeding school of porpoises:

On the third day they trolled offshore and a tasty Dorado:

Great work by our old friend Bill Harris and his posse!
