Craig scored the biggest Yellowfin Tuna of the season so far on board the Discoverer.

Neither Craig, Mate Juan Carlos, or Captain David could pick these monsters up off the deck.

Great to see the Yella Submarines are back in the area!

The brother combo of Captain Carlos and Mate Kevin makes fishing on the Explorer a family affair, so what better place to bring the kids for an introduction to blue water fishing.

Decked out in her new FishingNosara hat, this little angler scored a big Sailfish with the super panga.

They released a few more Sails throughout this very memorable day on the water.

Client Tony King rolled into town and fished his very first afternoon on board the barroom brawler, and sure enough he picked a fight with the biggest mofo in the place!

What a great Marlin!

Clearly Captain Carlos and Mate Kevin are dialed-in and their amazing scorecards are proving the point.

Safe released so we can expect to fight this monster again really soon!

The Explorer has continued her hot streak during mid-May with a run of Hall of Fame worthy performance. First Captain Carlos scored this ridiculous Dorado with client Gary Fiveash:

Then they backed it up with a nice pair of Sailfish releases:

I love seeing the big Dorado tail jutting out of the fishbox…even Igloo doesn’t make coolers big enough for that Mahi!



May 12, 2015

Our old buddy Jay Thompson returned for another crack at the inshore reefs and he scored a nice trio of big Snappers.

Captain Fico always finds the fish for his clients.

May 11, 2015

Casptain Fico didn’t have to take the 23-foot Adventurer far in order to score a whopper of a Wahoo.

It’s great to see young anglers besting big fish…great work by the Adventurer.

May 10, 2015

Captain David brought the house down with a two Marlin day on May 10.

Client Tony King and his group scored a small Striped Marlin estimated around 200lbs. and a larger Blue Marlin estimated at more than 350lbs.

They added a Sailfish to the scorecard to round-out a legendary day of fishing.

Great job by the battleship Discoverer!

May 8, 2015

Vicky Martinko provided the curtain call for her honeymoon fishing adventure on May 8 as Captain David set her up for a pair of trophy fish releases.

After an early morning Sailfish release, Captain David took the battleship inshore for a fantastic Rooster Fish release.

Great fish-handling by Mate Juan Carlos to get this fish back in the water after the photo…looks like Vicky did want to let go so easily!

They also scored a big Rock snapper for the dinner table.

Great end to a great week of fishing for these newlyweds!

May 6, 2015

Captain David on the Discoverer is on a great run of Sailfish releases, and he scored big today with client Dan Watts.

After an early Double Sailfish release, they added three more Sails in the afternoon.

Great work by the battleship!

Newlyweds Daniel and Vicky Martinko brought their talents over to the Super Panga and the Explorer scored excellent fish for these clients. Check out this mammoth Wahoo:

Daniel followed up with a pair of big Rooster fish releases:

Great work by Captain Carlos and Mate Kevin for these awesome anglers!
