The Adventurer welcome Chris Walcott for a morning half day and they walloped a GIGANTIC Amberjack.
This monster easily weighs over 60lbs. and will make for some fine filets; unlike their Atlantic Ocean brethren, the Pacific Amberjacks are great table fare.
Later on they also came face-to-face with a Shark.
This is as close as Captain David wanted to get to this mini Jaws, so they cut the line and let him swim free.
Captain David delivered a nice 50+lbs. Amberjack in on May 1 with angler Christine Henkel.
Captain Fico ended the month with a very nice Amberjack catch with angler Kerri Watt.
Unlike their Atlantic Ocean brethren, then Pacific monsters are quite edible and very tasty.
Great work by the Explorer!
Pete Andrews and Dexter Williamson enjoyed nice inshore action with Captain William on December 5. This big Dorado got the day off to a nice start:
The big fish of the day with this awesome Amberjack.
Russell Thorsheim was on a roll in mid-November…things went so well for him on the big boats with Sailfish and Dorados that he added a quick afternoon jaunt on the Explorer for some inshore fun.
This monster Rooster Fish may be the fish of the week for Mr. Thorsheim. For the filet bag they added a nice Amberjack.
After two solid days of offshore billfishing, the Captain Sergio group stayed inshore with clients John Martinez, Judy Martinez, Jerold Long, and Christine Long.
The strikes were constant over the eight hour trip with 13 Snappers caught along with other fun fish.
This nice-sized Rainbow Runner is certainly a tasty treat.
After loading up on Red Snappers (big and small), the crew hit paydirt with this 80lbs. Amberjack:
Everyone lined up to take a picture with this beastie.
The Explorer welcomed a great family for fun fishing action on the 18th.
This big Amberjack and Snapper score led to big smiles all around!
The advantage if fishing five times a week is that Captain David can apply one day’s success to the next trip. He took Antonio Cantillo to the same spot he’s been working all week and once again scored:
The highlight was this big Amberjack, which was backed up by a big Jack Crevelle and a small White Tuna.
The next day Captain David and Paul Fontaine found this manhole-cover sized Pompano…can you say ‘ceviche’?
