Greg Watson and his daughter joined Captain Carlos on the Adventurer for an fridge-packing harvest of tasty fish. The Dorados swarmed the 23-foot pocket knife and Carlos put these Canadians in the heart of the fight.
It’s great to see shared fishing experiences between parents and their kids, and from the looks of these pics this will be a fishing memory that lasts a lifetime for the Watsons.
They added a nice White Tuna to the Dorado haul and called it a day. Another outstanding trip from the sneaky Adventurer.
David Ribas and his posse took Garza by storm on the 30th, booking both the Wanderer and the Explorer for full days of blue water action. The flagship and the brawler stuck close together early on and found a pod of Whales sunning offshore.
Later they split up and the Wanderer released this gorgeous Sailfish estimated at just under 100lbs.
After a very productive morning inshore with the Swarbrick family, the Wanderer picked up Reed Guice and his group for an offshore billfish hunt. Reed fished inshore with Captain David earlier in the week and this was his first shot at offshore fishing action:
Fishin’ Accomplished! Yet another excellent catch and release by the flagship.
Rosie Swarbrick and her family came to Nosara from the little town of New York City and they took a Big Apple-sized bite a big red Cubera Snapper. The Wanderer kept to the coral green waters less than three miles from shore and stirred up the necessary feeding frenzy.
When the big brute hit the fight was on. Looks from the picture below that it may have been side hooked, put that much more pressure on the tackle and the angler to perform.
This Cubera Snapper weighs every bit of 40lbs. and should definitely keep the freezer full for the Swarbrick’s for quite some time.
Jake Winchester brought along his girlfriend Laurie and his brother Dave for a very fruitful day of offshore trolling. The mighty Wanderer put on a show for the Sailfish swarm and gave this group a great trip.
They nabbed and released three Sailfish early in the trip, then switched over the spread to target table fare.
“Laurie caught the first fish,” Jake wrote in an email . “It was the largest of the Dorados. My brother Iron Dave and I snagged 2 dorados at the same time.”
“In total we each caught a Dorado and Sailfish. Awesome fishing trip. William and Alex were awesome. Thank you so much!”
Nicholas Wisner signed up for a pair of fishing trips this week, and on his excursion aboard the sneaky Adventurer he and his girl hauled in a meaty 40lbs. Dorado.
It certainly seems that we are the beneficiary of some great Christmas fishing spirit and we are thankful for all of these nice stocking-stuffer sized Dorados. Great work as always from the fearless Captain Carlos.
Jim Kramer and his group are big time anglers who hail from the hard-fishin’ state of Delaware. These First Staters booked up the Wanderer for a billfish hunt and were rewarded with three excellent Sailfish releases ranging from 80lbs. – 90lbs.
These fish fight hard, but Jim and his ladies fought a little harder.
Excellent second trip of the day for the blue bomber with a total of four Sailfish released on this Christmas eve.
