Captain Fico and Mate Elias have turned in a fantastic year of fishing on the Explorer, and they closed out the season with a BANG!
They released a swarm of Sailfish in late August, and also added this excellent Rooster Fish release.
The fishbox stayed full with reports of Yellowfin Tuna and a big Amberjack.
Amazing action from the barroom brawler!
It was all about ceviche this month with a nice selection of Pompano, Snapper, and Jacks
You don’t have to go far off the coast of Garza to find good-eating fish, proved by the Adventurer‘s results this month.
Great work by the inshore mastro, Captain David!
The barroom brawler Explorer closed out the month with a wide variety of great action with clients Britta and Sam Gramer .
Very energetic Sailfish release by this young angler, but the Explorer also mopped up inshore, including this big old Amberjack:
This pair of Rooster Fish releases are certainly bucket-list worthy:
Plus the Super Panga filled the fridgerator with this beefy Cubera Snapper on ice:
The Explorer stayed inshore with client James Fenn and conquered this whopping 40+lbs. Amberjack:
Nice catch by the barroom brawler!
Captain David continued his great inshore fishing with great action on March 17.
This big Amberjack was the monster of the trip, which also included this big Black Tuna:
Captain Carlos kept the good times rolling with client Deena Ewert scoring several sweet Sailfish releases.
Later in the day the Discoverer moved inshore and scored this whopping Amberjack:
Remember that Pacific Amberjacks are good to eat (unlike their Atlantic brethren) and I’d bet that some tasty ceviche is in Deena’s future.
Ben Evans and Joe Driscoll returned to the Wanderer on the 12th with another great fantastic fishing performance.
They stayed inshore this time and loaded the fish box with gigantic Amberjacks.
Beware of these masked bandits!
They also hooked up a small Shark, released without incident.
On their final day of fishing, they returned to Sailfish City and ended their week with this nice Sailfish release.
Local legend Alban Rodriguez joined Captain David on the Adventurer and KO’d a pair of big Amberjacks:
The Wanderer pulled double-duty on December 26 with two half-days scheduled with two sets of clients.
First up was Chris Carroll who opted to stay near-shore in the morning.
A pair of Rooster fish releases were the highlight of the morning, with a beefy Amberjack on ice to round out the scorecard:
The inshore madness continued on April 2 as the flagship pulled myriad species of fish up from the shallow reefs.
Fresh of his great river mouth scores of Snook, client Mike Loughrey and his group scored Jack Crevelles, Amberjack, and the elusive Blue Jack Crevelles.
With four experienced anglers on deck, First Mate Alex got the rare opportunity to see how the client’s usually feel…that is, sitting back and watching some pro anglers fill the fishbox:
