Eric and Amy Anderson are part of our first class of Coastal Conservation Association anglers from North Carolina.
We have been honored to partner with CCA NC this season to send loads of great folks to Nosara from the Tar Heel State, and we look forward to seeing more of y’all real soon.
The fishing was a little slow, but Captain David persevered and delivers some excellent action on three half-days with Eric and Amy. Howabout we let Eric and Amy tell it:
Craig/Matt,
 
“Wanted to send you both a quick note and let you know that my family and I really enjoyed our trip last week.  The service your staff provided was fantastic.  Everything from the airport transfers, the daily breakfast, car service to/from fishing, etc… was top notch.”
“Even though the fishing was a bit slow all week, I enjoyed my three full days with Capt. David on the Explorer.  He worked hard each day in an attempt to put together something.”

I was able to catch my first Rooster, as well as my first Sailfish.

Mixed in was a few Mahi, a nice Yellowfin Tuna, a real nice AJ, as well as a number of other species.

David estimated the rooster at 25lbs., the Sailfish at 90lbs., and the AJ at roughly 45lbs.
 
Thank you again,
Eric & Amy Anderson

Jeff Joyner and his posse hit the water on board the Wanderer and had great success sticking to the inshore reefs. This big mama Cubera Snapper was the highlight of the trip:

They also hauled in a second nice-sized Snapper and one of the biggest Ponpanos we have ever seen around here.

Excellent fishing by Jeff Joyner group and the mighty Wanderer.

Kesal Patel put together a group of 20 people who all wanted to take a crack at catching the big one and FishingNosara was honored to host the entire group, spread out between the WandererExplorer, and Adventurer with a little help from our old friend Vibert on the Secret Spot.

Everyone had a great time, and the highlight fish for the day came on the famous Wanderer. Take a look at this monster Snapper:

We love taking care of your fishing needs, even if its just you and a buddy or 19 buddies.

Dennis Paul and the Wanderer turned in a legendary performance on June 4: A Double Sailfish release backed up by a 250lbs. Striped Marlin release!

That’s big even for this three-time Hall of Famer, who for this first time on this trip was joined by his girlfriend Barbara Dayhoff. These Clearwater, FL based anglers got of to a blazing start when the pair of Sailfish hunters hit the ballyhoos.

This fight was intense and after a 20 minute battle they had overcome both Sails and brought them alongside for picture-perfect double release just after 1pm.

The Wanderer continued to troll for a few hours when the brutal 250lbs. Striped Marlin came calling just before 4pm and Dennis was up to the task to bring her in.

Another outstanding performance by Captain William, First Mate Alex and the mighty Wanderer as once again Dennis Paul etches his name into the Hall of Fame.

Hall of Famer Dennis Paul returned to the Explorer for action, only this time they headed offshore about 10 miles to see what was happening in the blue water.

Early on in the trip they found a small school of Yellowfin Tuna and Dennis Paul added sushi to his menu in the form of two excellent 25lbs. Yellas.

Look at the girth on this fella:

The billfish weren’t biting as aggressively as usual in the afternoon, and I think Dennis managed to bury a hook in the reason why:

This 6-8 foot long Shark was skulking the area which most likely pushed the billfish a little more offshore. It’s neat to see a shark so close, but as we have no interst in eating it this fish was released unharmed.

Alejandro Garcia is the newest member of our team at Nosara Paradise Rentals and FishingNosara and has already established himself as a super ambassador of the pura vida spirit. Turns out Alejandro is a bad-to-the-bone river fisherman as well.

It’s fair to say he had a great weekend of fishing. On Saturday he hooked up this nice Cuberra Snapper:

Then on Sunday he brought in this monster Snook:

Whoa! This monster tips the scale at just over 30lbs.

That’s what I call bringing home the bacon!

It’s fair to say he had a great weekend of fishing in early June. On Saturday the 8th he hooked up this nice Snapper:
