Jason Kitner: “SIX Pacific Sail Fish on the Explorer with Capt David and First Mate Kevin in one day! OUTSTANDING!!!”

After releasing the trophy fish this posse set up shop over the reef about 2 miles out and piled the fishbox high with tasty Yellowfins.

Here’s a video shot from the Adventurer about 200 yards away; sorry for the quality, but this is a long way to zoom!

Tim Womack and his family lit it up on the Wanderer during their quick visit to Nosara near the end of July. The mayor of Sailfish City put this excellent family of anglers on five Pacific Sailfish…even the wife and kids got to reel in some monster billfish!

Tim broke the ice with the first release of the day, but was soon challenged by a mighty pair of junior anglers.

Not to be outdone, mama got in on the action with a Sailfish of her own.

Tim finished off the trip the same way he started with the fifth and final safe release.

Great hunting by Captain William and wonderful fish-handling by First Mate Alex to safely release all five fish.

Glenn Wootton’s group returned to the flagship on July 28 and took a tour of Sailfish City. The action fired off early in the full day trip and didn’t let up ’til late in the afternoon.

After three quick releases before noon, the action slowed down just long enough for lunch. In the afternoon the group picked up two more Sailfish releases plus a big Wahoo for the dinner table.

Here are some pictures that Glenn sent along with the following message:

“The first picture is me after 10 minutes; the last one is a half hour
later. He kicked my ass “

The Explorer is absoulutely on fire this month! On July 25 she relased a Marlin and a Sailfish, plus mopped up on Yellowfin Tuna and the suddenly-abundant Wahoo!

The billfish were released early in the trip, leaving the rest of the day open for fridge-filling.

That’s some incredibly well-rounded fishing from the most powerful panga in the bay. Great work by Captain David and Mate Kevin on this excellent day!
