Kelly Hondros scored big with Captain Fico on August 15, posting this excellent Sailfish release backed up by a tasty Dorado.
Captain William stayed strong through mid-August with more excellent Sailfish and Yellowfin Tuna action.
There were multiple Sailfish releases early in the trip.
Then later in the day the flagship scored dinner with this excellent Yellowfin Tuna on ice.
Josh Elder and his son enjoyed a wonderful day of action with Captain David on the Adventurer. The highlight was this rockin’ Rooster Fish release:
They also brought home some filets thanks to this Yellowfin Tuna and big Rainbow Runners.
The Harvester stayed on the bite with this excellent Yellowfin Tuna score on August 11:
Our great friend Roche Jaggelli and his daughter Rochelle joined the mighty flagship Wanderer for a great day on the water, highlighted by this sweet Yellowfin Tuna.
Great work by the mighty Wanderer!
Captain David kept the rods bent on August 10th with a big Jack Crevelle backed-up by 10 nice-sized Yellowfin Tunas
South Carolina Outdoors’ host Bill Haire finished off his week in Nosara with a fish-filled day on the Wanderer.
Young Mr. Haire got the day rolling with a 15lbs. Yellowfin Tuna backed up with this feisty Sailfish release.
Bill’s cameraman finally got his chance on the reel, and performed brilliantly with a second Sailfish release:
Bill Haire got a lesson in Ballyhoo rigging from Captain David (on loan from the Adventurer in the Mate position).
Then put those Ballyhoo to work with another nice billfish battle.
This is a great finish to their week of filming and we look forward to sharing the finished episodes with the anglers of South Carolina and beyond.
Justin Cannon and his son had a memorable day of fishing on August 3.
This Yellowfin Tuna provided nice filets, while this Sailfish release is a great angling achievement.
August 3rd was a banner day for angler Peter Petrassi and his group. They scored Sailfish early and often.
These fish were fired-up and put our tackle to the test…this rod wasn’t up to snuff:
Mate Kevin was busy all day keeping these billfish under control and safely released.
Everyone got multiple shots at these wonderful pelagic behemoths.
To top it off they scored a double Dorado hook-up and brought home lots of nice filets for dinner.
Banner day of fishing fishing on August 2!
