The boys went offshore on Tuesday November 16th and had a field day on the Yellowfins, this time the mack daddy weighed in over 75lbs.

The bite was so thick that eventually they started catching and releasing; unheard of for nice meat fish like these, but there was enough tonnage that ice consumption was a concern.

Captain Eduardo and the legendary fish-catching Nice n’ Tight are back in the water and the fish are already running for cover. It’s a futile effort, because once again Captain Eduardo’s clients are going home with full fish boxes and big smiles.

On Tuesday November 16th newlyweds Miles and Vanessa Anderson had a fantastic day on the Nice n’ Tight with Captain Eduardo. In no time at all they yanked a nice 25lbs. Yellowfin Tuna off the inshore reefs.


Later, the line popped off as a massive Amberjack challenged Miles to a fight. With Captain Eduardo guiding the action, Miles Anderson prevailed and the happy couple celebrated their last day in Nosara with a Tuna filet lunch and an Amberjack dinner.

On behalf of the FishingNosara family, Congratulations and Good Luck to the Andersons.

John Harbord, Bruce Sabine, and Joe Ronnlof represent some of the best anglers in Clearwater, FL and on Monday November 15th they went on their first of four full days of fishing on the Wanderer. While these fellas are used to pulling Snook and Tarpon out of the north side of Tampa Bay, they were more than ready to tackle the big Costa Rican meat fish.

On their first day Bruce was the hot rod catching two magnificent Cuberra Snappers. As with Matty’s Broomtail the day before, these fish were given to the villagers in Garza to make one heck of a sopa de pescado (fish soup).

November 14 was a big day for the Wanderer. In the morning, Matty and client Eduardo Barrios caught two little White Tunas, then deep jigged for a nice 25lbs. White Tuna. Then Matty hooked up this massive 50lbs. Cabrilla (Broomtail Grouper).

The fight was short but violent, and about three minutes after this picture was taken, Matty took a 45 minute nap in the cabin.

After picking up Craig at Garza, they went 25 miles offshore seeking the blue water.

After boating several 20-30lbs. Yellowfin Tunas, Eduardo hooked up a beautiful Striped Marlin. He put on a show, but managed to cut the line off on a stray piece of driftwood less than 100 feet from the boat. Eduardo did everything right, but the Stripey got away.


All told they caught eight Yellowfins with the big one weighing 40lbs. Great trip!

Client Juan Adriatico book the Wanderer on October 31 and got things off to a quick start. First he got to work on the inshore reefs with a few 12lbs. Yellowfin and White Tunas.

Then, the line screamed off when it was hit by a 50lbs. Amberjack.

Early in the afternoon Juan got the hook into this awesome 45lbs. Dorado.



Hopefully this is a sign that with El Nino gone the fish are starting to resume their normal feeding habits.

Mr. Adriatico wasn’t done yet!

Captain William and the boys put Juan on two massive Cuberra Snappers to cap off Opening Day. Both weighed over 30lbs. with the big one nearing 50lbs. Great start to what will be a great season!

Captian William and the crew of the Wanderer are back on the water and catching some serious fish. After one year of service, this 31′ T-Craft has been freshly painted and armed with new tackle from Star Rods, Penn, Shimano and a whole array of Williamson Jet Poppers.

You will not find a better-armed boat in all of Costa Rica.


On October 30th, the Wanderer was fresh off the hill and got her first action with our family from Nosara Paradise Rentals: General Manager Javier, his brothers Grevan and Eduardo, Marlon the painter, and friends Carolina and Emily. They had a great time and caught a nice Amberjack and a few White Tuna. The staff of Nosara Paradise Rentals work year round to keep our clients smiling…it’s great to see them smiling big as well!

Captain William has Alex and David getting the Wanderer ready for another year of billfish combat by refitting the fighting chair, plus the yearly maintenance and paint work to keep the Wanderer running smoothly and looking great (and of course catching fish). Captain William and crew can’t wait to get back in the water and start filling the fish boxes.

The Wanderer‘s first year was a success beyond all of our wildest dreams. From the early stages of rebuilding and refitting the boat in Florida to the final rigging in Costa Rica to the day-to-day excellence exhibited by Captain William and the crew, every element has come together in perfect harmony to make this boat a legend in the Nosara area after just one season. Of course none of this would be possible without you, our friends from around the world who have made the Wanderer part of your stay in Nosara.

 

We are all super stoked to finally get Captain David’s new ride the Explorer delivered from Nicaragua and prepped for battle. We are just now starting the final rigging before she’s ready to catch Cuberra, Snook, Roosters and anything else that swims.


On October 14th Captain David took a friend’s Panga boat out to scout new spots and caught 40 Yellowfin Tunas…that’s not a typo, that’s FORTY fish. What a great first trip! If you are ready for a trust test of angler skill, book Captain David and the Explorer before his calendar fills up.
