Amazing report from the pocket knife Adventurer…Captain Carlos reports that the 23 foot Panga has released her first billfish, a terrific Pacific Sailfish!
Client Josh Walker hook-up up a 100+ lbs. Sailfish on a surface feather about 1 mile from shore. With glass water and calm conditions, there was no stopping Captain Carlos from taking the Adventurer a little more offshore than usual. The water clarity was obviously a huge factor in this strike.
Captain Carlos masterfully coordinated the hook-up and the fight, but most importantly saw to the safe and careful release of this awesome fish.
Now most Captains would be satisfied calling it a day on the heels of this massive acheivement, but Carlos is known for squeezing every drop of action out of a fishing day.
Josh scored five nice-sized Dorados before the Sailfish strike, then later in the day dropped a line to the reef bottom and hauled in this amazing Cubera Snapper.
A trophy fish released and lots 0f filets to go with it. Let’s hope this is a sign of the kind of fishing our clients can expect from Captain Carlos and the never-say-die Adventurer.
