On the afternoon of May 13, Ben and Alysia Richards on the Wanderer caught eight big Yellowfin Tunas, four Black Tunas, and two Blue Runners on a 5 hr. cruise. That is a heckuva lot of fish for just a half-day on the water.
On May 13 the lovely Georgia Peach Ms. Paula joined Craig and Captain David on the Explorer for a trip to inshore fish market known as Picha Padre. They had just arrived to Nosara and Bianca (the official mascota of Nosara Paradise Rentals) was very hungry; it was imperative that they pack the fishbox with some good eatin’ fish.
Mission Accomplished as once again Paula brings home the bacon! All our clients know that if you have fresh filets in your house, little Bianca will be around for a snack.
To prepare for his upcoming trip to Nosara, US Representative for FishingNosara Craig Sutton took his 31′ Fishtastic offshore in Jacksonville, FL for a full-on Dorado harvest. Along for the ride were First Mate Carl Schmidt, Mates Andrew Herbanick and Matty Jorn, and of course the lovely Georgia peach Ms. Paula.
First off the boat ramp at 5:15am, lines in the water at 7:00am, and fish in the boat by 8:30am…things were off to a fast start.
This picture was taken at 10:45am with the Dorado count around 25. By days end the Fishtastic had 51 fish in the box! Commented Andrew, “This is why I love Florida!”
We will post the pictures from the marathon filet session later…for now just know that we Florida boys (and Georgia gals) know how to fish!
Dennis Paul was back on the Explorer and caught eight nice Yellowfin Tunas and a Rainbow Runner, then capped it off with a MASSIVE 65lbs. Cuberra Snapper. This catch is certainly Hall of Fame-worthy and gives Mr. Paul the distinction of being the only double-enshrined member to date.
Fishing was slow today, but back at the Nosara Paradise Rentals campus the construction of the new Safari Garage is moving along splendidly. The pillars are all up and the roof beams are in place.
This project is far ahead of schedule and should be completed very soon. Great work as always by Javier and the rest of the team!
Captain Eduardo took the nimble Nice n’ Tight out to deep water to take a crack at some billfish. He has a knack for getting big results from his little boat and on this day in particular Captain Eduardo released an excellent Marlin.
Also this month client Greg Donoghue and his friends were on the Nice n’ Tight and had great action on Yellowfin Tuna and Dorado.
Another month of fantastic fishing by the legendary Captain Eduardo Carrillo.
Newly-inducted Hall of Famer Dennis Paul was back in Nosara on May 4, and once again he had the fishies running scared. He earned his enshrinement by releasing a gigantic Blue Marlin back in February on the Wanderer and this time is on the Explorer mercilessly beating down the inshore species.
Captain David took the Explorer out to his secret spot and they packed the fishbox with haste and reckless abandon. Their scorecard shows two Jacks, a Rock Snapper, and seven nice Yellowfin Tunas.
However, May 3 was a new day and client Sam Dobson and his girlfriend brought in the kind of catches we are all used to seeing on the Explorer. They stayed inshore and got the decks bloody early with a nice Rainbow Runner and a beefy Yellowfin Tuna.
They capped off the day with some offshore hustling and caught a ridiculously huge 70lbs Wahoo. Known as mini-Marlins in some circles, the Wahoo is a powerful fighter who pound-for-pound is just as formidable a foe as a billfish.
