Mike Loughrey and the Harvester scored big on March 18. The highlight was this floor-sweeping monster Dorado.

They augmented this catch with some smaller Yellowfin Tunas and a nice Sailfish release.

“Great time in Nosara last week,” Mike wrote via email. “Casa Neptune is a great spot for a couple folks. Thanks for everything. Fishing with Alex and Wilson was epic! Freddy, Javier, Mary, Alex & Yoseph were great to be with.”

Captain Alex took the Harvester way offshore on the 14th, and Kevin Shimp’s family was ready for the long ride into battle.

Steve Shimp fought an active high-flyer, and then young Josie countered with a Sailfish release of her own.

Big Dorados and Yellowfin Tunas rounded out the haul.

Great work by these Southwest Florida anglers and the mega panga Harvester.

On March 13, Kevin Shimp and his family posted a banner day on the Harvester.

The Sailfish have been thick this month, and Captain Alex is always ready to deliver sweet Sailfish releses for his clients.

For the dinner table they also nagged a big Dorado, backed up by a smaller one. Here is Bailey with a 38 lb fish, caught with no adult help.

Great work by the mega panga and the Shimp family.

On March 4, we welcomed Jason Frelich’s group for the first day of a three-day offshore campaign. The highlight of the trip was this monster Dorado

Throughout the day, the Harvester was beset by hard-charging Sailfish. Several multiple hookups with safe releases all around.

Some small Yellowfin Tunas rounded out the haul; what a great start to the week for Team Frelich.

From the “Small World” department:

Dan Johnson from Hatteras was happy to welcome his new friend Antonio Carrillo to fish with him on Wednesday the 24th.

They met at the immigration line in Liberia airport last year while Dan was wearing a Fishing Nosara shirt when Antonio called him next in line
After many questions from Antonio, Dan said he fishes with Fishing Nosara and William Mendoza is my captain of many years

Antonio quickly said he is my father

It’s a small world

Dan has been trying to get Antonio to fish with him on a day off from the immigration police and it worked out great to fish with his father.

So on February 24, the Wanderer welcomed this most distinguished guest:

This may be a vacation for Officer Carillo, but the same can’t be said for the fish…the family scored over ten Red Groupers, plus a nice Yellowfin Tuna.

This trip was a ‘who’s who’ of local talent. Captain Fico of the Explorer came along, also a guest of Mr. Dan Johnson.

The fishing karma was so good that they scored a double Grouper catch even though the snap swivel was left unbuckled.

Near-shore Sailfish release were a welcome diversion.

Also Captain Fico scored an outstanding Yellowfin Tuna.

Here is Father and Son with an excellent Dorado:

“With the best Captain, my father.” Antonio posted.

Justin Harmening bulldozed his way into the FishingNosara Hall of Fame with a magficient THIRTEEN Sailfish release performance on February 23.

To say that these fish were aggressive is an understatement. Captain Alex could barely get the spread deployed before a bait got wrecked by a hard-charging Sailfish.

Team Harmening handled multiple hook-ups throughout the day. Great work by the crew to keep these fights organized and the lines un-tangled.

All this reeling can work up a mighty appetite, but this nearly 70lbs. Dorado should help with the hunger.

A few smaller Dorados rounded out the meat haul.
