John Schimkaitis and Jared Cozart struck again on November 16 with Captain Alex reporting a pair of excellent Rooster fish releases backed up by a floor-sweeping Dorado.
Russell Thorsheim polished off his week of hard-fishing action was another sweet pair of Dorados on November 16.
Russell Thorsheim was on a roll in mid-November…things went so well for him on the big boats with Sailfish and Dorados that he added a quick afternoon jaunt on the Explorer for some inshore fun.
This monster Rooster Fish may be the fish of the week for Mr. Thorsheim. For the filet bag they added a nice Amberjack.
Sarah Galbraith and her friends joined Captain David on the 15th for a great day of rod-bending action.
Great work by the Adventurer!
Clayton Laskowski and his boys brought home the bacon with a quartet of swole Doradaos on November 15. Looks like dinner is served!
November 14 will be a day that John Schimkaitis, Heather Cozart and Jared Cozart never forget as they enshrined themselves in the FishingNosara Hall of Fame with a legendary BILLFISH GRAND SLAM!
First up was John nabbing a 100lbs. Sailfish, released early in the trip, completing the first leg of the Grand Slam.
Then a 100lbs. Striped Marlin came calling around noon; not the biggest specimen we’ve ever seen but Jared’s catch still counts as the second piece of the Grand Slam.
Finally it was Heather’s turn on the reel for a MASSIVE Blue Marlin estimated by Mate Kevin upon release to be well over 350lbs.
The action was so hot on the Discoverer that the scorecard shows more than just Billfish releases; a good array of Dorado and Yellowfin Tuna means that these North Carolina anglers will be able to replenish their strength at the dinner table.
Fantastic work by Captain Carlos and the unbeatable battleship Discoverer!
The Explorer and client Alan Johnson snagged a quartet of good-eatin’ Dorados on their November 14th fishing trip.
It’s always good to leave the boat with a big sack of filets!
Russell Thorsheim stocked up on filets on November 14. First up was a nice-sized Dorado:
Then Captain Alex parked the Harvester over a nice reef bite which yielded seven Snappers and two small Snook…very unusual to snag Snook this far off of the beach.
The Discoverer welcomed Maria Garay and her group for a fun morning of rod bending action. They scooped up five 20lbs. Dorados on a five hour trip.
A fish an hour ain’t too shabby, especially when they are this delicious.
Good things came in twos on November 13th ad Captain Alex welcomed Russell Thorsheim for two Sailfish releases backed up with two Dorados.
