The Wanderer welcomed client Benjamin and his posse for a great day of fishing. Lots of action on the Yella fellas, big pink filets in the box, and even bigger smiles for the clients. A great trip to end a month that seems to just keep getting better.
The bite is sure to stay strong for the coming months and we know that wherever the fish are, Captain William will be right on top of them in the big blue beauty Wanderer.
May 15 was a double duty day for Alex and Captain William. In the morning they welcome client Marc from New York for a 3 hr. Yellowfin tuna hunt.
Craig, Paula and Javier went offshore for a billfish hunt that afternoon; unfortunately they only raised one sail.
Two days later they stayed inshore and worked over a school of Jack Crevelle and Bonita, then finished off the day by parking over a mancha (school) of Yellowfin Tuna; several double hook-ups led to some nice fish in the box: five Yellowfin tunas, eight Jack Crevelle, five Bonita, and a HUGE Needlefish
Captain David welcomed Josh to the Explorer for a Saturday fishing trip that yielded an amazing catch. Check out this HUGE Roosterfish! As with our billfish catches, all Roosterfish are released.
Great work by Josh and the Explorer!
May 14 marked the return of US Representative for FishingNosara Craig Sutton and Paula to the Wanderer and they started small with this feisty little Tripletail. Nice work by Paula to slay this mighty beast.

On the afternoon of May 13, Ben and Alysia Richards on the Wanderer caught eight big Yellowfin Tunas, four Black Tunas, and two Blue Runners on a 5 hr. cruise. That is a heckuva lot of fish for just a half-day on the water.
On May 13 the lovely Georgia Peach Ms. Paula joined Craig and Captain David on the Explorer for a trip to inshore fish market known as Picha Padre. They had just arrived to Nosara and Bianca (the official mascota of Nosara Paradise Rentals) was very hungry; it was imperative that they pack the fishbox with some good eatin’ fish.
Mission Accomplished as once again Paula brings home the bacon! All our clients know that if you have fresh filets in your house, little Bianca will be around for a snack.
To prepare for his upcoming trip to Nosara, US Representative for FishingNosara Craig Sutton took his 31′ Fishtastic offshore in Jacksonville, FL for a full-on Dorado harvest. Along for the ride were First Mate Carl Schmidt, Mates Andrew Herbanick and Matty Jorn, and of course the lovely Georgia peach Ms. Paula.
First off the boat ramp at 5:15am, lines in the water at 7:00am, and fish in the boat by 8:30am…things were off to a fast start.
This picture was taken at 10:45am with the Dorado count around 25. By days end the Fishtastic had 51 fish in the box! Commented Andrew, “This is why I love Florida!”
We will post the pictures from the marathon filet session later…for now just know that we Florida boys (and Georgia gals) know how to fish!
