HOLY MOLY! Check out this monster Yellowfin Tuna scored by client Ryan Miles on the battleship Discoverer.

6.4 ft long, 4.4 ft wide, and God knows how many pounds.

Captain Carlos and Mate Juan Carlos Jirón have done it again!

July 26, 2016

We met Ryan Miles at the Charleston Boat Show last year and are thrilled to have him and his family down for a fun week of fishing.

The Discoverer performed brilliantly with four Sailfish releases, punctuated by this sweet Double Release.

Great work by Captain Carlos and the battleship!

July 22, 2016

Our friend Josh Droegemueller and his group scored some nice Sailfish releases with Captain William on board the flagship Wanderer.

Once again the Wanderer proves that she is the most consistent boat in Central America.

Great work by the famous flagship!

In late July Captain David was back in action with the 23-foot Adventurer performing excellently on back-to-back trips.

Client Arthur Leman brought home the ceviche with this bug Ponpano, then Josh Koren followed up with this sweet Snapper:

Great work by the pocket knife!

Anthony Johnson rocked the house on the Harvester with a hybrid inshore/offshore pair of trips for the memories.

These big mean Sailfish were hungry when Captain Alex found them, challenging Mate Kevin to bill and release them safely.

The next day they stayed inshore and gathered live bait for a deep water hunt:

In the afternoon they headed inshore and fought Snappers on spinning tackle.

What a haul by Mr. Johnson!

July 19, 2016

The Harvester had two fun days as this young anglers hauled in one of the best Yellowfin Tuna hauls of the season:

Later in the week they scored this excellent Sailfish release:

July 18, 2016

The Explorer has cemented a reputation as a true catch-all vessel; in late July the barroom brawler scored every major type and species of fish in our stretch of water.

As usual the Pacific Sailfish have been thick and Captain Fico has been there to capitalize.

Also offshore the Super Panga found some excellent Yellowfin Tuna.

The action was hot inshore as well, with Amberjack and big Cubera Snappers on ice plus lots of beautiful Rooster fish releases:

July 17, 2016

Raul Arteaga and his family are a fun-loving bunch of anglers from the Lone Star state, and they had a big time on the Harvester with Captain Alex.

After several awesome Sailfish releases, the Mega Panga came inshore and bested this excellent Cubera Snapper.

July 15, 2016

The Wanderer welcomed Nick Palumbo and his family for a great day of hybrid inshore / offshore action on July 15.

This big Cubera Snapper was scored early in the trip near to shore.

In the afternoon Captain William headed out to Sailfish City and found a swarm of high-flying Sailfish.

July 13, 2016

Adrian Paredes and his group had a big day with Captain William reporting seven Sailfish release on their July 13 trip.

Nice work by Mate Johnson to keep these fights short and sweet leading to safe releases.

Check out this high-flyer:

Big fish above the water means big smiles on board!

Later on they moved inshore and nabbed two swole Cubera Snapper:


“Great day on the water. Dreams came true on our trip to Nosara.” wrote Adrian in and email.  “Thank you Captain William and mate Johnny for putting us on 7 beautiful sailfish and two tasty cubera snapper. I can’t wait to go back!”
