Stephen Warren and his son had a memorable trip with Captain Fico on November 25. Early in the day they went offshore and scored this awesome Dorado:
Things slowed down offshore, so the Explorer headed inshore and jigged up a beautiful Cubera Snapper.
Great work in waters near and far by the bad barroom brawler!
Craig stayed inshore on the 24th and scored two excellent species using live Bonita rigs.
This Cubera Snapper is delightful table fare and should keep everyone fed for the week.
Later in the trip, this Rooster fish managed to hit the hook but miss the Bonita…fortunately the Harvester released this, the dumbest fish on the reef.
Better luck next time, Einstein!
November 23 started a little slow for Craig and the Harvester, but the long morning gave way to an action-packed afternoon.
This 250+lbs. Marlin hit the starboard teaser like a bomb and put up a strong fight. The Harvester prevailed with a sweet release after a 30 minute fight.
Great fish-handling by Captain Alex to see the safe release of this monster.
The Harvester lived up to her name on November 23 with a bunch of Dorados finding their way to the fishboxes.
Everyone got in on the action with catches reported by Captain Alex throughout the day.
The Mahi were so aggressive that this double-hookup turned out to be a singular gluttonous fish.
Great work by Captain Alex and the Harvester!
Captain William continues to dominate on the mighty Wanderer, evidenced by this excellent Blue Marlin release:
On the same trip they also bested this high-flying Sailfish.
Great work by Captain William and Mate Johnny on these billfish battles.
Clint Frank and his son took to the Explorer on the 21st and Captain Fico delivered the goods with a big Dorado offshore.
Then they headed inshore and snagged a nice Cubera Snapper.
Not too shabby for just a half day.
The Discoverer welcomed angler Moses Horner for a fun day of offshore action on the 21st. This mighty Sailfish was the highlight of the trip:
After this swell release, the big battleship nabbed several nice Dorados for the dinner table.
The Wanderer had to miss a few days in late November, but it was for a fine reason:
Christmas came early for the mighty flagship!
These new twin Yamaha F150s will ensure reliable horsepower for the season to come.
