Craig Sutton was joined by Paula, Matty, and Alejandro for an afternoon of fishing on the Wanderer on May 15. Captain William gathered the intellegence from Captain David on the Explorer that a large ‘mancha’ (school) of spinning dolphin were in the area feasting on Yellowfin Tuna.
The team worked this school together as First Mate Alex and Craig tossed poppers from the foredeck while Paula and Alejandro went to work in the cockpit. Captain William and Captain David worked together to keep the fish corralled so that both boats would have maximum chances at success.
Once the bite shut down around 3pm it was once again time for an honored FishingNosara tradition: Fresh Sushi!
Ron Poindexter made some more noise on the Wanderer on May 8 as they had ‘His and Hers’ Sailfish releases. The misses was the first angler up and she took this Sailfish on a succinct trip to the boat for a release.
The other Sailfish was a mean fighter and came it hot and heavy, but Mr. Poindexter was up to the task. Safe releases on both fish as always by First Mate Alex.
Katie Bonjean and her group released a whopping 9 Sailfish today on the Wanderer ranging from 75lbs. all the way up to over 100lbs. Clearly Captain William has found a nice Sailfish swarm and has been putting our clients on the blue streaks all month long.
Great work as usual by First Mate Alex seeing to the safe capture and release of these beauties as the Wanderer racks another day for the record books!
Jacksonville’s own Ron Poindexter kicked some serious billfish butt on his first of two days of fishing on the mighty Wanderer. Captain William pointed the compass to Sailfish City and First Mate Alex put out the spread that has turned these once elusive predators into daily sparring partners for our boys.
This first Sailfish release was a great way to start the week, and the furious action that followed put these Northeast Florida anglers to the test.
How sweet are these pictures! it’s hard to decide what Captain William is better at: catching big billfish or capturing them on camera.
Look out for more great action when these clients hit the water again later this week.
Simon Williams comes to Nosara all the way from merry old England and for his day on the Wanderer it seems like he brought some nasty North Atlantic weather with him.
Though everyone on shore was ecstatic to have some much-needed rain, Captain William and First Mate Alex had to keep one eye on the baits and another eye on the fast-moving rain clouds pouring out of the mountain.
The Wanderer is famous for her ‘Never Surrender!’ attitude and just because the seas were rough doesn’t mean that the fish would get a break, as Simon released this nice Sailfish after a tense 20 minute duel.
Great work by the baddest boat in the bay: the Wanderer!
