Captain Carlos delivered the fish of a lifetime for Teresa Heth-Elliott with this sweet Striped Marlin release:

Nice fish-handling from Mate Kevin (on loan from the Harvester) ensured the safety of both fish and angler.

Awesome job by the battleship!

January 18, 2017

Local legend Dan Johnson was back in action on the 18th with Captain William on the Wanderer reporting four Sailfish releases backed up by a big Dorado.

Javier came along on this offshore hunt; the highlight was this challenging Double Sailfish release:

The Dorado came late in the day and will definitely look good on the dinner plate.

Fantastic work by the mighty flagship Wanderer!

January 16, 2017

The Discoverer delivered Dorado for client Kelly Borgeois on January 16. Not bad for just a  half day fishing!

January 14, 2017

Captain David prowled the reef in mid-January with a bundles of excellent inshore scores.

These small Bonitas were weaponized to nab this wonderful Rooster Fish release:

The Adventurer also nabbed this 30+lbs. Amberjack…ceviche time!

January 12, 2017

The Discoverer put together a wonderful trip of trips for Paul and Jon Worthington, scoring a bevy of big Dorados and scoring some sweet Sailfish snatches.

Normally we fixate on the big billfish releases, but the real highlight was the boatload of Doardos that Team Worthington put in the fishboxes.

Look at the girth on these monsters!

Great work by the big battleship Discoverer!

January 12, 2017

Paul Worthington had another huge day of blue water action on the 12th with a sweet Sailfish release followed up with four big Dorados.

This monster was safe released after the picture, but the same can’t be said for these tasty green beefcakes:

Awesome job by Captain Carlos and the big bad Discoverer!

January 11, 2017

Fantastic fun on the Wanderer on January 11 with good action both inshore and offshore. First up was this meaty Jack Crevalle, perfect for ceviche:

Then Captain William pointed the flagship offshore and discovered a small school of big Doardos.

These are just the right size for dense, tasty filets. Great work by the Wanderer!

January 11, 2017

Big day on the battleship Discoverer for our good friend Paul Worthington.

We’ve endured a few days of offshore winds which forced out clients to stay inshore, but now that the winds have died down the blue water bite has fired up.

Look at this wonderful Sailfish release, flawlessly executed by Mate Juan Carlos:

January 8, 2017

The Wanderer braved some stiff offshore winds during the first week of January, but still delivered the good for these clients with a fun Double Dorado score:

The next day began with a beautiful sunrise over Playa Garza, a good sign for a productive day.

The offshore winds meant that Captain William would stay inshore and apply a classic live bait tactic that always seems to bear fruit. First step was to collect live Bonitas from the shallow reefs.

After a brief stint in the Wanderer‘s live tuna tubes, the first 5lbs. Bonita was hooked and deployed to the reefs below.

In a flash this mighty Rooster Fish engulfed the bait, leading to this wonderful release.

Later another live Bonita was struck by this 40+lbs. Amberjack, filling the fishbox and putting some tasty ceviche on the menu.

Great work by the mighty flagship.

January 5, 2017

The Harvester got the New Year off to a great start, scoring big with this stunning 300lbs. Blue Marlin release.

Great fight from Captain Alex and superb fish handling by Mate Kevin to see this wonderful monster released.

Later on they followed up with a great Sailfish release.

The Mega Panga is rocking and rolling for 2017, which spells trouble for big blue water beasties.
