A fine group of anglers came to us from the Blue Spirit Yoga Retreat desiring a taste of some blue water fishing. We split the party up between the Wanderer and Explorer with great rod-bendin’ action reported from both groups.
Check out this fine White Tuna from the Wanderer. Clearly this boat has the tools to satisfy any angler of any age!
Nice work by the big blue beauty!
The Blue Spirit Yoga Retreat booked the Wanderer and Explorer for a blue water outing for the faculty and students.
The Explorer won the day with three fat Dorados on ice. Estimated between 20 lbs. – 30 lbs., each of these greenies yields lots of great filets for these yogis.
Nice hunting by Captain David and Carlos on this very productive outing.
Nancy Ferguson and her posse had a very productive day on the Wanderer with a pair of tasty Dorados in the fishbox. These Virginia anglers are the latest in a long line of great clients we’ve hosted from the Old Dominion.
These green goodies have been prevalent so far this season and are a great sign for the coming year.
Great work by Captain William and First Mate Alex to put their guests on the fish and bring them all the way to the icebox.
Matty was in town to help get the new office squared away, but still found a little time to squeeze in some fishing. The legendary Explorer was in the final touch-up stage of maintenance and Matt got the first crack on the Super panga this season.
Trolling a few miles offshore they pulled in this nice 20lbs Dorado…not a monster by any stretch but still a really good-eatin’ fish!
The Wanderer hosted some excellent clients today for an inshore assault. Lisa Quam got the ball rolling with this sweet Cierro Mackerel:
Steve Bonczyk really set the water on fire with this excellent Rooster fish release. This beast fought like a bear…look at that rod doubled over!
First Mate Alex handled this fish with great care to ensure a quick and healthy release.
Great work by some great clients and the baddest boat in Garza bay the Wanderer!
Captain David is the lead dog when it comes to boat maintainace. He is on a hot streak this summer with the new panga boat and all the Explorer repairs finished in record time. So much so, that he took a few days this week to repaint the flagship Wanderer.
The Wanderer is on standby in Garza bay so naturally the staff at Nosara Paradise Rentals coerced Captain William and First Mate Alex to take them out for a little trip to the fish market.
The almost-finished rainy season has pushed a lot of felled trees down the rivers and out into the ocean; the Wanderer found such a trash line floating in front of Samarra about 6 miles east of Garza. With this much shade, any angler knows that green gold is hiding in the shadows.
Here are our two best drivers Fast Freddy (left) and Freddy Paloma (right) with a nice Dorado. Also our new office assistant Cynthia and our cheif mechanic Marino were on board for the mahi mayhem:
Great work by the Wanderer in keeping her craft sharp during the offseason.
Shannon and Pam Emery followed up their incredible first day of fishing with a monster of a different sort; yesterday they beat up big billfish but today they dropped bait to the bottom and bested this beastly Broomtail Grouper:
Wow! This monster is estimated by the crew to weigh well over 70lbs. That’s a lot of grouper sandwiches for sure!
“This day was planned to do some inshore for rooster, snapper and grouper. The day was almost a bust because of the rain and color of the water. With 15 minutes remaining the crew got me hooked into a big Broomtail Grouper that we got to the boat despite my letting him get back into the rocks.”
Great work by the crew of the mighty Wanderer, the boat that doesn’t know the meaning of the phrase “off season”.
Shannon and Pat followed up their Marlin and Sailfish releases with more excitement. Two Sailfish released and a trio of big Dorados on ice for the dinner table.
“The second day was as good as the first with two sails and three Mahi Mahi which made great ceviche.”
Mrs. Emery was all over these Sailfish today as she released this 150lbs. monster, clearly the largest of the week.
Let’s see that picture:
Perfect! Shannon capped off the off-shore Sailfish round-up with this handshake late in the day:
