Tight Lines y Pura Vida!
The Captains, crew, and staff of FishingNosara
The battleship Discoverer found gold on its May 23 trip with anglers Rick Riley and David BiStarkey.
The rains early in the month has washed dead trees offshore, and wherever they float an entire marine ecosystem grows in their shadow.
Captain Carlos circled this tree for the better part of the day and piled the fishbox high with five 20lbs. Dorados and twenty 5lbs. Dorados…do the math on that one!
Some nice Yellowfin Tuna were also in the mix:
Great work by the big battleship!
Fishing buddies Rick Riley and David BiStarkey notched the billfish scorecard twice on May 21st with a big Black Marlin backed up by a sweet Sailfish.
Excellent boat handling by Captain William kept the fights short and Mate Johnson was there to release both fish cleanly.
Robert and Inez Higginbotham joined our old pal Jay Thompson for a morning half day on the Discoverer on May 20.
Captain Carlos delivered the goods with some whopping Yellowfin Tunas!
On the afternoon of the 19th Captain Fico welcomed Kevin Mumphrey and his family for an morning half-day filled with fun action.
Their efforts yielded lots of good filets with a big Cubera Snapper and a nice-sized Yellowfin Tuna on ice.
Great work for just a five hour outing!
Dynamite anglers scored the fish of a lifetime on a rain-soaked fishing mission with the Wanderer.
We try to avoid the rainstorms once we get offshore, but when a horse like this one takes the line you don’t get much of a choice.
Great work on the release by Mate Johnson on this wonderful Black Marlin.
Joseph Caveness and his family chose the Wanderer on May 18 and the family-friendly flagship scored a wide variety of fun fish.
Joe started the day with a nice 20lbs. Yellowfin Tuna and then the kids took over the reel, scoring this nice Dorado.
Captain William moved inshore in the afternoon and young Mr. Caveness scored a small Bonita and a nice Yellowfin.
This 25lbs. Wahoo provided more diversity tot the filet bag, and is a welcome surprise to find this close to shore.
The fish of the day was scored by Mama Bear in the form of this wonderful Rooster fish release.
All in all it’s a great day of family fun on the famous flagship!
Returning FishingNosara Hall of Famer and Aussie legend Ross Boyce added to his legacy with this awesome Rooster Fish release on May 17:
Captain Carlos nabbed a trio of nice Yellowfin Tuna on the afternoon of May 17.
Gotta love when the smiles are as big as the filets. Great work by angler Marshall Williams!
Captain William continued to follow the spinning pods of porpoises offshore, and once again engaged with big Yellowfin Tunas.
These are the perfect sized Yellowfins…any bigger than this and the filets lose their density.
These tasty treats are a very good sign as we progress into our second season.
Meghan Mumphrey and Austin Walker kept the good times rolling on the Explorer with a trio of nice Yella Fellas scored on a 5 hour morning trip.
Looks like dinner is served!
