On May 14th Client Mark Padilla from Samarra booked Captain Vibert for a morning trip. The Captain pointed the Cabo towards the offshore reef and begin to tease the bigger fish up from the bottom. First Mate Vibert Jr. and client Mark were jigging the deep water off of the transom, waiting for the first nibble when BOOM!
A big, mean, hard-fightin’ Rooster fish started peeling off line like it was cotton candy and dove straight down. The Captain and crew were patient and let the big fella tire out. They kept up about 3 knots to keep the fish honest and made the slow spiral overhead. The Rooster followed the water column up like a spiral staircase right into the Cabo.
Upon release, this Rooster felt to weigh about 45lbs.
Not one to rest on success, Captain Vibert then put Mark on a nice macarella and nine black tunas. Pretty good for a morning, huh?
Client Bobby Leesman on May 10th, who fished a full day on May 10 came away with a 30lbs. Yellowfin tuna. He also has action throughout the day, but the fish were tough to catch.
Client Daniel Fero also had an action packed day on May 4th, albeit with limited results. He got some dinner in the form of a big Yellowfin tuna, but lost a pair a Cadillac-sized snappers on the bottom.
On April 26th clients Dwayne and Katrina fishing for a half-day on the reefs. They applied our FishingNosara Cuberra Tactic and caught a beautiful 30lbs. Cuberra snapper. They rounded out their day with four sweet whites tunas.
While the Wanderer was on the hill David, Alex, and Javier had an excellent morning catching Snook at the Nosara River Mouth. Check out the size of these beauties…
No limits down here, friends!
The Wanderer took her first trip to the hill this month as Captain William and Mates Alex and David gave all the major systems a check-up.
After four months in the water, I am happy to report that the Wanderer is nearly as perfect as the day we launched her.
With a new coat of deck paint to keep things shiny the Wanderer was once again ready to catch some fish.
Most recently a gang of anglers from Jacksonville, FL were on the blue water and showed the world how we get down in Northeast Florida. Gary Newman got things rolling with this spectacular Striped Marlin:
Then was followed shortly after with another grand Rooster Fish for Chuck Darner:
Then Bill Wilderotter nailed this MASSIVE Broomtail Grouper…70lbs. if its an ounce!
Things are dialed in on the Wanderer, but hurry up and reserve your dates as the calendar is filling up fast. The Marlin and Sails aren’t going anywhere…
But you can’t get them unless you book the Wanderer today. Pura Vida Amigos!
Dr. Freddie, Dr. Paul, and Daniel Phipps had a fantastic day fishing the Nosara River. Check out this haul:
On April 7th the Grove party was all over the Dorados and then finished their day off strong with a late-afternoon Black Marlin release.
Even though the month started off slowly, great crews like the Wanderer’s have the skills to keep clients on fish and fish on hooks. Now that the Marlin have showed up big time, there in no reason not to expect more awesome trips.
