John Hislop and hjs group are the next in line to represent North Carolina in our ongoing battle with bluewater billfish. These folks ain’t playing around either; have three trips planned this week and the first one brought a pair of wonderful Sailfish releases plus a decent Dorado for the dinner table.
This high-flying Sailfish hit the bait around 12:45 and before the clock struck 1 this bad boy was safely released. Very efficient fight coupled with excellent boat handling and a clean bill shot…all in a day’s work for the mighty Wanderer.
A half-hour later the Hislop party put this Dorado on ice. This is a great way to start your week in Nosara with filets ready to go.
The walk-off shot came just after 3pm when another mean Sailfish hit the hook.
This fight was intense and the fish was strong, but once again the Wanderer had a counter for every punch it could throw and achieved a clean release at 3:20pm
Let’s hope this is a sign of good things to come for these Tar Heel state anglers as they take two more trips to the blue water this week.
