Captain Carlos is an unstoppable force on the blue water. This trio of Sailfish releases on a 5 hour half day is more proof of his prowess.

Great fish handling by Mate Juan Carlos is the perfect compliment to Captain Carlos’ hunting skills.

February 3, 2016

The Explorer keeps shattering expectations for an under-30 foot boat; on February 3 another pair of Sailfish met their match with client Alkis Kourkoulos.

Great work by Captain Fico to continue to put the pressure on big billfish.

February 2, 2016

Captain David is a master of inshore fishing, as client Trevor Kennedy can testify after his trip on the Adventurer.

This monster Cubera Snapper was the highlight, and was backed up by a few nice Jack Crevelles.

February 2, 2016

Jason Smith scored big on the super panga Explorer with several Sailfish released backed up by a meaty Dorado for dinner.

Captain Fico is on a hot streak and his clients are reaping the rewards!

January 31, 2016

Captain Alex brought the month of January to a magnificent close with client Jason Smith reporting big Sailfish releases:

The highlight of their double-digit release day with this Double Sailfish release executed by Mate Kevin:

They also nabbed a tasty Mahi-Mahi for the fishbox.

Excellent work by the mega panga!

January 30, 2016

Alkis Kourkoulos scored the fish-of-a-lifetime with Captain Fico on January 30. This monstrous Black Marlin was no match for this Clearwater, FL-based angler.

Safely handled and released by new Mate Elias.

Wonderful work by the barroom brawlin’ super panga Explorer!

January 30, 2016

Captain Carlos kept the good times rolling with client Deena Ewert scoring several sweet Sailfish releases.

Later in the day the Discoverer moved inshore and scored this whopping Amberjack:

Remember that Pacific Amberjacks are good to eat (unlike their Atlantic brethren) and I’d bet that some tasty ceviche is in Deena’s future.

January 29, 2016

Rich Lippo continued his hot week of fishing with a boatload of Sailfish releases with Captain Carlos and Mate Juan Carlos.

Check out the size of these beauties!

Safe releases all around makes certain we’ll see these monsters again soon.

January 29, 2016

Returning client Bill Elms joined Captain Alex for a full day of action which included several Sailfish releases backed up a big dinner-time Dorado.

Tasty filets on deck for Bill!

January 28, 2016

Rich Lippo wanted to give the new Harvester a whirl, and was rewarded with a big day of Sailfish releases care of Captain Alex and Mate Kevin.

Great work by the Mega Panga!
