The bite has been on fire this week with big numbers of Sailfish bites. The Discoverer knocked out five Sailfish releases on a half day trip with client Dwayne Fuller.

That’s a fish per hour if your scoring at home!

Great work by Captain Carlos and Mate Juan Carlos on this fast-paced day of action.

The Wanderer engaged in close-quarters combat inshore with some of the biggest lunkers of the year so far…check out this MASSIVE Cubera Snapper that got things started:

Then they filled the trophy case with a pair of sweet Rooster Fish releases:

Great work by Captain William and the legendary Wanderer!

Another productive day for the Discoverer on May 22 with a trio of Sailfish releases and backed it up inshore with a nice Rooster fish.

A great group of anglers from CCA TX led by Richard Schultz were all smiles on this trip.

Great job by the Discoverer!

Sometimes the offshore bite ain’t happening, but the wily Captain Alex is deft enough to move inshore for world-class bottom fishing action.

Client Richard Shultz started out with a whopper of a Cubera Snapper, then scored a trophy-caliber Rooster fish.

Great work by the flexible Harvester!

The Wanderer tracked down a nice high-flying Sailfish late in May.

Captain William put the moves on this beast and kept the fight short.

Nice fish-handling by Mate Johnson on this clean release by the mighty flagship.

The Discoverer leads the team in Grand Slams this year, and on May 21 close to notching the scorecard with another one.

Joined by client Jennifer Engle, Captain Carlos nabbed two Blue Marlins, and two Sailfish.

For good measure they also added a Dorado for the dinner table.

Fantastic work by Jennifer Engle and the Discoverer.

May 21, 2016

Captain Alex took Team Engle for a Sailfish catching adventure on May 21 with multiple releases:

What a fighter!

The Sailfish were piled up thick but the Mega Panga kept the fights short and maximized her results.

May 20, 2016

The big battleship pulled double duty on June 20 with two half day trips scheduled. The morning trip scored this sweet Sailfish release:

Then the afternoon group returned to the hunt and nabbed a nice Sailfish of their own.

Great work by the big bad Discoverer!

May 20, 2016

Edgar Bonilla moved to the Harvester on the 20th and nabbed another sweet Sailfish for his scorecard.

Safe released by Mate Kevin as always.

May 20, 2016

Randy Hudson stayed inshore on May 20 and knocked big Rooster Fish off of his bucket list.

This sweet pez gallo was safely released after the picture as always.
