Are you ready to look cool and help a great cause all at once?
The long wait is finally over! The next generation of FishingNosara T-shirts are arriving to Guiones Beach today, available in multiple colors and styles. As always $1 from each shirt sold goes to the Nosara School.
To everyone who is not currently in Nosara, we will begin filling orders for new T-shirts on March 31, but we are currently taking pre-orders. Email Craig@FishingNosara.com or Matty@FishingNosara.com to place your order.
Jay is out on the Explorer right now but phoned in a morning report before heading offshore for trolling action. Right now he’s got a 20lbs. Cuberra in the box and three Congrios each weighing 15lbs.
The Congrio is a member of the eel family that yields a tasty white meat.
The same team of expert superstars from The Explorer Story and The Wanderer Story took a break from boat building to fabricate a trailer rack for FishingNosara’s 13′ Ocean Kayaks. Granted, as car guys this is right in Jack, Craig, and Matty’s comfort zone.
Take a look at the progress from a stock 8 foot trailer to a spiny, menacing, Road Warrior-esque battle wagon. This beast should be in Nosara sometime next week and be in full time service shortly thereafter.
Craig got in on the action and brought his old-school approach to bear on the cross-members. Even though we have power saws, he cut them all with a hacksaw and achieved perfectly equal lengths and nice flat corners. Can’t teach Experience kids!
Of course Jack has been welding for many years and this project was no challenge to his mammoth skills with the metal whip. From race cars to boat trailers, Jack has many successful welds under his belt.
By adding crossmember support to the stock trailer we estimate that the carrying capacity is double the stock load. Also the superstructure can be removed in a few minutes to allow for more utility from the trailer.
Despite the modifications and extreme attention to detail, this whole project took only one day of fabrication with a second day allocated for painting. Great work from the Dream Building Team!
It is with great joy that we announce the birth of Javier Hernandez’ first child: a beautiful, healthy baby boy. The birth occurred on March 7 in the afternoon, and mother and child are both resting comfortably.
Javier Hernandez has been with Nosara Paradise Rentals since the very beginning. Starting as a gardener and handyman, Sr. Hernandez immediately showed great leadership skills and potential far beyond his position.
Since ascending to the position of General Manager, Javier has put his stamp of excellence on every aspect of the operation involving Nosara Paradise Rentals, FishingNosara, and Nosara Transport. Don’t just take my word for it: seems like every client testimonial on the internet gushes over Javier’s efforts to deliver the vacation of a lifetime to our clients.
He is a good boss, a great friend, and a true ambassador of the ‘Pura Vida’ spirit and of his homeland. Now he begins the most challenging task to date: fatherhood.
Baby’s good, Mama’s good, Life’s good. Pura Vida!
We were predicting a good day and sure enough the big Sailfish came calling. Our on the Wanderer Catherine Chase had a magnificent day on the blue water. They raised several Marlin and Sailfish, with four successful releases added to the scorecard.
March 5 brought one of our favorite clients Catherine Chase out on the Wanderer. Last year she worked over the Dorados, but nothing could prepare her for this magnificent day on the blue water.
Why bother explaining how Catherine and the boys pulled off the now-legendary Double Double Sailfish…just let the pictures do the talking:
All Four Fish Live Released
Please note that our crews have decades of combined experience handling these fish. DO NOT ATTEMPT THIS PHOTOGRAPH!!! While exciting, the double billshot can be very hazardous to fish, boat, and humans alike. Unless you also have a lifetime of experience on the water, don’t even think about it!
Meanwhile on the Explorer, Captain David and client David Mederos got a nice sailfish of their own.
As always, this billfish was safely released to fight another day.
After the Sailfish release, they experimented with fly fishing for Yellowfin tuna over the reefs…we are actively looking for fly fishing experts who want to try their hand on the Roosterfish, Cuberras, and even Billfish.
The blue water is bubbling with action this weekend and our boats and Captains are ready to pull some fish out of the boil. Yesterday, client Chris Graves on the Wanderer hooked up a big sailfish but lost it after 40 seconds of jumping and tailwalking. He finished his day inshore and caught a pair of nice Yellowfin tunas.
This morning our great friend Katherine Chase is out on the Wanderer seeking Sails, Marlin and Tunas. Also, Robert Mederos is out on the Explorer already scouring the reefs for Roosterfish and Tunas. Should be a great day!
Captain Eduardo is rocking and rolling this month. He has been extremely busy with lots of good trips and happy clients.
Client David Porthy booked the big Sportsman and had a great day on the inshore reefs. He caught two nice Yellowfin tunas, two Black tunas, and four big Amberjacks. Great trip as always from Captain Eduardo.
Captain Vibert knows how to deliver lots of great fishing in a short amount of time. Yesterday client Donna and her group booked the Cabo for a 2.5 hour trip and they used up every minute of it.
They caught two really nice Black Tunas and a feisty little Cuberra Snapper. As usual Master Captain Vibert and the Cabo are the unbeatable boat for consistent action.
Elliot and the boys just won’t quit! After two days of taking a huge chunk out of the local Yellowfin Tuna population, the crew loaded up on the Wanderer for a move up the food chain to the big blue water billfish.
Once again, things went well for Elliot as they released two awesome Sailfish offshore.
Several fantastic trips for these guys. Great work by Captains and crew!
Captain William welcomed these clients back to the Wanderer for a pleasant three-hour tour (sorry…it’s the Gilligan’s Island skipper hat that gets me).
Lines were popping the whole trip as they staying inshore over the reefs. They got a wide variety of fish including Yellowfin Tuna, Black Tuna and this nice Amberjack.
Most importantly, everyone had a blast out on the water. Great trip!
