FishingNosara veteran angler Bill Harris has built a solid reputation as a no-holds-barred fish catching machine. In the past he’s had lights-out performances on big Yellowfin tuna and Dorado but has yet to join our bill collectors club. Would he find the elusive Pacific Sail on his three trips this week?

The St. Petersburg, FL angler rolled into town deep this week with fellow Tampa/Pinellas boys Elie Bedran, Andrew Spangler, Joe Arriaga, Brady Harris and Roger Stephan.

Captain William’s plan for these guys? Take them out to Sailfish City and see who quits first…the fish or the fellas?

The Sailfish swarmed the spread thickly and the boys reeled quickly. This first high-flying Sail came in at 9am with several of her hunting buddies close behind.

After the first two releases the bite cooled off, but sure enough it fired right back up after 1pm. Here’s Brady Harris with one of the larger specimens.

The final release of the day came just after 3:30pm and put the perfect cap on a quadruple release effort


Of course First Mate Alex saw to the safe handling and live release of these rare creatures. The way this posse fishes we’re gonna need them around this week!

Most people don’t get to see grown men smiling and giggling like little boys, but it’s a near-daily occurrence on the flagship Wanderer.
