Robert and Geoff Birtalan delivered a Hall of Fame performance on a fantastic 5 hrs fishing trip on the Wanderer. They had 8 Sailfish come tearing through the spread throughout the day and successfully caught and released five of these beautiful behemoths.


The highlight was this awesome Double Release; excellent work by First Mate Alex to ensure the safety of the fish, crew, boat and anglers.


All of this billfish releasing will work up an appetite, so Mr. Birtalan also brought home this tasty 15lbs. Dorado.

More great billfish action from the Wanderer with clients Bob and Geoff Birtalan of Jacksonville. They followed up their Sailfish release from yesterday with three more successful releases. These guys know what to do when big fish come calling!


Over on the Explorer client Guy Valente caught a nice Yellowfin Tuna and and ten meaty Black Tunas with Captain David. Great results for just 2.5 hours on the water.

The father and son fishing team of Robert and Geoff Birtalan are in Nosara for the week looking for some big time offshore billfish action. They got started on the Wanderer today and had several hungry Sailfish in the spread.

They had a double hook-up but the hunting buddies slyly cut the lines against each other and escaped. They broke the ice in the afternoon with their first Sailfish release.




Look out for these guys to tear it up the next few days!

Huber and his group were back on the Wanderer and spent the day  in the reef beating the heck out of the big bottom fish. They started out by trolling to for Bonitas to use as live bait and were quickly successful; in no time at all they were fully armed with eight juicy black bonitas, plus got a nice Amberjack.


As always Captain William and First Mate Alex sent the bait swimming to the bottom and the frenzy commenced. Hunter and the boys finally let up on the monsters but only after boating a 30lbs. Cubera,  a 35lbs. Broomtail Grouper and a 20lbs Amberjack.


Wonderful day for the Huber group to follow up their great billfish performance. Let’s see what they have in store for their next encounter with the big bills in the coming days.

Big day of inshore action for the Explorer and the Wanderer as the FishingNosara team had some great weights on the hooks. The Harlins went out on the Explorer this morning for a half-day and caught four nice 15lbs. Yellowfin Tunas and fifteen Twofin Tunas between 10-12lbs.


Later in the day on the Explorer Frank Desoblin from Gecko Verde in Samara choose the Super Panga for a half day and caught four Yellowfin tunas and 3 Twofins.


Meanwhile on the Wanderer Captain William took the Huber group a little bit offshore to troll for some monsters, and they found the BIG Yellas  out by a school of porpoises. They had several multiple hook-ups and kept some nice behemoths for the fishbox.


Great day of fishing by the whole FishingNosara Team.

Hunter Huber and his group started the first of several day of fishing on the Wanderer with a bang. By 10am they had a Double Sailfish release and within the hour had released an additional Sailfish.


The Huber posse released another one around 3pm and added two beefy Yellowfin Tuna for the dinner table. Great work by Captain David and First Mate Alex to get these fellas introduced to Costa Rican Sportfishing with a great day.

They will be back for more this week so look out!

Richard Reiner had a nice day this morning with Captain David on the Explorer. They stayed near Garza Bay and bottom fished the reef under the Kingfish green water. Though they lost a nice Dorado, they did catch a nice 30lbs. Cubera Snapper and two 15lbs. Yellowfin Tunas.

They also caught this wee little Cubera but threw him back. Clearly this day’s haul will make for some fine dining back on shore. Great work Captain David!

After yesterday’s amazing 90lbs. score, Chuck Harris, Rick Blackburn, Rick Damron, and Scottie had the Yellowfin Tuna on the ropes for their final day of fishing on the Wanderer. With Captain David on loan from the Explorer and Concierge Numero Uno Manuel on board, they once again utilized ‘El Popper’ and ceder plugs to present a spread that the Yella Torpedos could not resist.


The first few fish were in the 15lbs.-20lbs. range and they got bigger with each catch. With four footballs in the fishbox, boys were shocked by a line ripping off like it was hooked to an oil rig. A knock-down drag-out brawl ensured, with the boys emerging victorious. Think of it this way… have you ever made this face:

In not, it is because you have never caught this fish:



This is a Hall of Fame catch if I’ve ever seen one…the perfect end to several solid days of fishing on the Wanderer. Give it up for Captain William, First Mate Alex, Mate David and this fine team of anglers!

The Wanderer has become the favorite choice for family fishing trips and novice anglers learning the craft of Costa Rica sportfishing because of her luxurious amenities and smooth ride. Today’s trip proved that she is also fit for a quartet of hardcore anglers to get down to serious business.


Rick and his posse booked the Wanderer for a full day of reef warfare and they stacked the fishbox full of casualties. Highlighted by a pair of 30lbs. Amberjacks and a 20lbs. Cubera Snapper, these fellas were dealing bending rods all day long.


Great catch for the dinner table to match their previous Sailfish release! As always the Wanderer is up to any conceivable angling challenge
