As we barrel into the new season, the FishingNosara team is putting the finishing touches on the refitting and reloading of the fleet.
Discoverer we have replaced the old Polynesian teak covering panels with new pieces of a local-sourced wood called Guapinol.
Wanderer is also getting new Guapinol for the transom, plus is getting fresh runners down the gunwales.
We also have replaced all of the rod holders with Screw-less holders from GEM Products.
We’ve used these bad boys on the
Harvester and are stoked to apply them to our old flagship.
Also the in-deck fuel tanks have been pulled, scraped, and re-painted.
Now that the essentials are in place, it’s time to clean her up and re-assemble.
The rest of the
Wanderer has come out nicely and we will get her splashed this week.
Also Captain Alex has finished the rehab work on the
Harvester and is ready to rock-and-roll.
Meanwhile, Casa Privada’s added bathroom is completed. No more going into the main house for late-night needs.
Our rainy season fishing campaign concluded with a trio of trips in early October with angler Troy Davis enlisting the
Explorer for blue water action.
Several Sailfish releases were backed up with a literal boat load of medium-sized Dorados.
Mr. Smith and his crew got out of town just in time to avoid some historic flooding. Some areas of Nosara endured 30 feet of flooding.
The flooding in Nosara has been challenging, but the Ticos are working together and helping each other out.
Here is the 23-foot
Adventurer with Capitan Alex, Antonio, and NPR staff Jeni and others getting some local kids to high ground. VIDEO
The waters have since receded and things are getting back to normal.
Most of the boats are on the hill for their annual refit and repaint to prepare for the new season. But Javier and Grevan felt the fishing itch, so they took the
Transporter out to the reef and scored a boatload of Yellowfin Tunas in just under two hours.
That’s right, the
Transporter…our 14-foot ferry boat that our clients know well from the trip from Playa Garza out to the boats.
Well, um….two things here: 1.) This is the boat record for the
Transporter, and 2.) You know how we always say you don’t need a big boat to catch big fish in Nosara? This is what we are talking about.
Discoverer posted more nice catches on September 21 with super Sailfish on the scoreboard.
Great work by Captain Carlos and the big battleship!
Discoverer continues to soldier on during the month of September. On the 19th, the big battleship scored Dorados and Yellowfin Tuna.
Great work by Captain Carlos and the unstoppable
Jeroen Nelis specifically wanted to target Sailfish, and although we can only take what the ocean gives us, on September 18 the ocean was in a giving mood and provided this angler with an excellent Sailfish release.
This great trophy release was backed up by some nice Dorados for the dinner table.
Great work by Captain Fico and the
Excellent video arriving from our friends Paul Arthur and Ricky Kay. These guys brought their own camera crew along for their fishing adventure and the resulting video is awesome:
Great work by Captain Alex, Captain David (of the
Adventurer) filling-in at the mate position, and of course these great Texas anglers.
Our friend Alicia Blackledge returned to Nosara for the second year in a row to enjoy some blue water fishing during the so-called “off season”.
Captain Fico delivered the goods with big Dorados and Yellowfin Tunas.
Geaux Team Blackledge!
