The Captains, crew, and staff of FishingNosara

Dominic Licardi brought his hard-fishin’ crew down from West Palm Beach, FL and they logged three solid days of fishing on the mighty Wanderer.

The highlight of their trips came on June 24:

This Blue Marlin is estimated at 400lbs. and she put up everyone ounce of fight she could muster.

This South Florida team also notched a pair of Sailfish releases, backed up by a few nice Yellowfin Tunas.

Great work by Captain William and First Mate Alex on the famous flagship!

Another rare and elusive Queen Snapper was scored by the Super panga Explorer! These tasty critters only come through our area once every few seasons so we are pumped to have these in the spread.

Great work by Captain Carlos and the fearless Explorer.

The infamous Wanderer struck again on July 20! Clients Sebastien and Rene Bire took the blue beauty offshore for a 5 hour trip and scored a MASSIVE Blue Marlin!

The combinations of Captain William’s expert boat handling and First Mate Alex’ angler coordination in the cockpit spelled doom for this mighty billfish.

Released alive and well after the photos, this Blue Monster is certainly the fish of a lifetime for the Bire posse.

Captain Carlos has been very active on the Explorer with excellent catches of Rock Snapper, Yellowfin Tuna and Cubera Snapper.

The Explorer consistently proves that you don’t need a big boat to catch big fish in Costa Rica.

David Washburn brought the kids along for an inshore fish hunt, and the mighty Wanderer reaped the rewards with a wide variety of filets in the box.

This respectable Rock Snapper kicked off the action, and several more of the tasty red morsels found their way on board.

After the early flurry of action, Mr. Washburn got a strike from a BIG fish and had to use the fighting chair to battle this fish with spinning tackle.


Usually we use this thing for skyrocketing Marlin, so everyone was looking forward to seeing what kind of monster was tied to this reel.

BOOM! This 50+lbs. Rooster fish was live released after a few quick pictures.

 Great fishing from a great family on the mighty Wanderer.

The Adventurer struck again with this beefy Amberjack. Look at the color on this beauty:

Gilles Lemay brought his sons along for a family fishing adventurer on the famous Wanderer, and their late-day trip yielded some excellent table fare.

Looks like these guys have plenty of sushi and filets in their future…Great work by the flagship!

Sweet Rooster Fish score on the Adventurer today for client Maciek Sabodacha. The 23-footer stayed inshore and nabbed this handsome fellow:

As usual, this fish was released after the photo. But don’t think these boys didn’t get any filets on the straight razor.

These nice Snappers will make for a festive dinner for sure…Great work!

Pedro’s Posse scored big today with Sherry catching her first ever Sailfish.

Another lady who proves that Northeast Florida is home to some of the fiercest anglers on the planet.

Great send-off for Pedro’s Posse on the mighty Wanderer!

More great family action for the Adventurer. Check out this beefy Cubera Snapper scored from the reefs outside of Garza:
