James Petter brought the whole family for a quick 2.5 hour trip on the Wanderer. They stayed inshore and caught an array of fish including some small Dorados, tasty White Tunas, and a big ole Jack Crevelle.
Another super family outing on the Wanderer; everyone caught fish and got hooked up with big smiles!
Happy birthday to Steve! He got the best gift a man can ask for this year…a trip on the famous Wanderer with Captain William and First Mate Alex. They headed offshore and followed this pod of porpoises out to the blue water break.
The Sailfish were waiting out there in the nutrient rich blue water and they were hungry! The Wanderer‘s spread endured several attacks but stood strong and counter punched with a pair of Saillfish hook ups.
One got away, but his hunting buddy admitted defeat and shook hands with Steve after the battle.
Great work by the birthday boy on the big blue buoyant beauty!
Excellent performance on the Wanderer for our new pals Jesse Felt and Erik Snelgrave. These San Josa, California anglers got off to a hot start with a small Dorado and a Yellowtail Snapper on ice before you could say “cowabunga”. They then got serious with a pair of beautiful Rooster fish releases.
Look, all three of those guys have the same hairstyle!
Great work by Captain William who has kept the Wanderer parked on top of Rooster fish all month…June 2012 goes up as our best ever Rooster fish month with a total of 13 releases.
Starting on June 1, the FishingNosara team had one trip with a single release, two doubles, two triples, and a quadruple release…The Rooster Fish Cycle for all you baseball fans out there (I see you out there Brooke S., viva Gigantes!)
Spread the word to the local billfish popluation…the Adventurer has struck again! Never in our wildest dreams did we imagine that a 23 foot panga with tiller steering would stand up to the mighty Pacific Sailfish that populate our stretch of water, but the fearless Captain Carlos proved that last month’s sailfish release with Josh Walker was no fluke.
What a beast! Hats off to Captain Carlos for coordinating the strike, fight, and most importantly safe release of this majestic marine monster.
The angler for this release was from Marta Baez’ family and you can see from these excellent photos that this legendary Sailfish release was only part of their unforgettable Costa Rican vacation.
The absolutely wore it out in Nosara: ziplines, kayaks, horses, and of course one of the most memorable Sailfish releases of the season.
After two weeks of weather delays we are primed for the weekend at the Kingbuster 400 Kingfish Tournament held in St. Augustine, FL. Lots of great prizes are on the line for all levels of anglers, so come out and join FishingNosara at this tourney.
Following a spirited Captain’s Meeting at the St. Augustine Bridge of Lions Marina, 50+ crews braved the 100+ degree heat and went kingfishing. The bite was a bit slow and the scales were absent the 50lbs. we’ve seen in the past.
Still it was exciting to see first place go to a good old friend:
Congrats to Captain Jerry Carter on winning the KingBuster 400…his prize? A week at Nosara Paradise Rentals with fishing trips from FishingNosara!
PS Nice hats gentlemen…FSU and FishingNosara is a lethal combination!
