The Captains, crew, and staff of FishingNosara
The Wanderer put on an inshore fishing clinic today with client Mike Pearce and his friends. The big splash was made with a quartet (that means FOUR) Rooster fish releases with the big one estimated well over 50lbs.
Safe releases all around by the incomparable First Mate Alex.
They also added some tasty eats in the form of a Dorado, a Yellowtail Snapper and a big Cubera Snapper on ice.
Fantastic fishing from the blue beauty and these excellent Canadian anglers.
Captain Carlos is back on the water and got things moving with a nice Dorado in the fishbox with Gary and his wife.
Great start to what we expect to be a great season for the straight razor!
Kestrel Dickerson and her family hail from the beautiful town of Grand Junction, CO and even though the fishing there is more of the river variety this family strutted their stuff on the blue water with the famous Wanderer.
Right off the bat their youngster boated this excellent Ciero Mackeral. Known for it’s zero-shaped spots and delicious filets, this fish is a real winner…nice catch son!
The grown-up had their turn when a pair of Dorados hit the baits and set up a heart-stopping Double Dodo Battle!
Hunting pairs of Dorados are infamous for zig-zagging to tangle the anglers…the fact that both fish made it to the cooler is a real testament to Captain William’s strength on the wheel and these anglers ability to keep cool under pressure.
Mr. Dickerson put the icing on the cake with a fantastic Rooster Fish release:
Great work by First Mate Alex on the safe release of this Rooster!
Great send off for Craig Sutton as the Explorer produced another legendary Cubera Snapper for the US Rep for FishingNosara.
Like usual, this fish was a ‘day-saver’…after a long day of nothing but Bonitas, this monster took the live tuna off the bottom and gave Craig a heck of a fight.
Great filets are already on the way back to Jacksonville, much to the delight of the US office!
Lori Seiler and her posse of CCA Florida anglers put pressure on the big time reef dwellers on board the Wanderer. Captain William took them to a great bite of fish and the action stayed hot all day long. The first fish in the box was the rare and elusive Yellowtail:
This tasty specimen is excellent table fare and it is unusual to see one of this size.
They followed up with another rare species for our area with two nice Blue Trevally:
The highlight of the trip was the release of this gigantic Rooster Fish:
Now that is a monster of a trophy fish! Great work by First Mate Alex to safely released this treasure.
Teresa and Richard Parcels are the latest anglers from CCA Florida to make their way to Nosara for some great fishing action, and Captain David on the unstoppable Explorer certainly made their dreams come true.
We use the phrase “filled the fishbox” kind of loosely around here, but in the first of their three days fishing they literary filled the fishbox:
After that haul the die was cast for some offshore action, and these Florida anglers did not disappoint…how about TWO Striped Marlin released?
Excellent work by Captain David and Mate Kevin to deliver the goods for these clients.
FishingNosara Lifetime Hall of Famer Richmond Phipps enlisted the super panga for a short trip to the fish market along with son Daniel and daughter-in-law Yetty.
They scored some nice Yellowfin tuna backed up by a pair of beefy Dorados. These filets made a perfect addition to the Thanksgiving feast the next day.
Great work by Captain David and one of the true innovators of Garza panga fishing…great work Richmond!
Our great friend Marion Lawler is back in Nosara for another round of deep sea fishing with his sons. The Wanderer was on top of her game as they hunted down a swarm of Dorados and Yellowfin Tunas for the refrigerator.
Marion’s sons got their first crack at blue water fishing with the Wanderer back in July 2012 where they performed brillantly, however clearly their a little more confident this time around:
Clearly they have been working on the craft cause they boated these monsters with the smooth precision of professionals.
Great work by this Texas posse! We expert to see these boys again soon.
Lori Seiler and her group from North Carolina got off to a fast start on the first of three full days of fishing on the Wanderer.
Captain William lead the way off shore and found that big green Dorados were stacked up thick as cord-wood.
Time to get lumbering!
They called it a day with 10 Dorados on ice and two more days on the schedule.
Pat Faloona and his son booked the Wanderer for a morning of inshore fishing, and they report the first Yellowtail Snapper of the season on ice.
This brightly-colored morsel is a chef’s delight, yielding rich white meat that is a real treat. They also added some vareity to the refrigerator in the form is this small White Tuna.
Not scale-tippers by any stretch, but still these are some great-tasting catches…excellent work son!
