Brian Justice and his family enjoyed a full day on the Wanderer and since the billfish were scarce early in the trip, Captain William pointed the flagship inshore and cleaned-up on a wide array of species.

They started with a handful of Jack Crevelles, then graduated up the tastiness scale to the delectable White Tuna.

Finally their time was rewarded with a world-class hunk of table fare known as the Mullet Snapper! The meat on these fellas looses its density once the fish grown over 25lbs, so we usually don’t get excited about them. However these little fellas yield a flaky, lobster-like meat that it hard to top.

Looks like some folks have a few awesome meals in their future thanks to the unshakable Wanderer.

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.

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.

Excellent catch!
