Philip Rivera and his family joined Captain Alex for the beginning of a double-day of fishing on March 15. The morning half of the day was highlighted by this excellent Sailfish release:
Then in the afternoon Jasper Buchbauer came aboard for a Yellowfin Tuna rally.
Persistence pays, and this late-day monster proves that the best fish of the day is often the last fish of the day:
The Harvester found gold with Craig Sutton nabbing at 150+lbs. Yellowfin Tuna on August 12.
Craig casted for this monster over a pod of spinning porpoises and brought him home with an efficient 25 minute fight on a Penn Slammer spinning reel.
It’s rare to see a fish the Captain Alex can’t lift off the deck, but this one fits the bill.
Fellow anglers Kim and Lloyd Michael were on board and scored an excellent Sailfish release, plus added their own meat with a 50+ lbs. Dorado.
Great day on the Mega Panga!
HOLY MOLY! Check out this monster Yellowfin Tuna scored by client Ryan Miles on the battleship Discoverer.
6.4 ft long, 4.4 ft wide, and God knows how many pounds.
Captain Carlos and Mate Juan Carlos Jirón have done it again!
The Discoverer welcomed back returning client Paul Worthington for a nice day of Yellowfin Tuna conquering. Check out this beastie:
Later in the trip Donna Bowler caught 40lb Dorado pictured with her husband Steve.
Then Paul finished off the trip with a 250lb Blue Marlin.
Fantastic job by Captain Carlos on the big battleship!
The BIG Yellowfin Tuna have arrive and Master Captain William put a big one on the money with client Paul Worthington on July 3.
This respectable Yella was in fact the warm-up round.
With a little help from Mate Johnson, this behemoth was decked after a solid one hour fight.
Enough trying to hold it up…let’s get to cleaning and filet this monster for the dinner table!
The boys from Wilde Wood Construction have been hot this whole week, and over on the Harvester this awesome 58lbs. Yellowfin Tuna was boated:
BIG Yellowfin Tunas have moved into the area and Captain Alex and the Mega Panga are ready for them! The next day Team Ashby returned to the Harvester and scored more sweet Sailfish releases!
Our good buddy Bob Hartin and his family took to the Mega Panga as a school of BIG Yellowfin Tuna swarmed our area, and the crafty Captain Alex was on the scene to mop them up!
Bob scored big fish with us way back in 2012, and it’s good to see his fishing prowess is still top-notch.
They added to the big monster Yellowfin from the morning with a armload of 30-40lbs. Yellas later in the afternoon.
Add to that a nice Sailfish and you got a perfect day of blue water action:
Returning angler David Svec knocked out several Sailfish on a full day of action.
Each guy got several shots at Sailfish, with six successful releases on the day.
They also nabbed some big Yellowfin Tuna for the dinner table.
Hendrik and Maria Engel continued their annual Christmas fishing fiesta with a legendary performance on the mighty Wanderer.
After three years of knocking out Pacific Sailfish, young Ms. Engel finally scored the true fish-of-a-lifetime with this gargantuan Blue Marlin:
Fantastic work by Captain William to deliver this, his third Marlin release of the week.
Later in the day Hendrik brought home dinner for the family in the form of this big Yellowfin Tuna.
Our old buddy Mike Burling has returned to Nosara from the hard-fishing town of Fernandina Beach, FL and once again scored wonderfully on our stretch of blue water.
The legendary Explorer was the scene of the battle, the highlight of which was this bonkers-big Yellowfin Tuna!
More big Yella Fellas were in the area, and met the same fate as their big brother:
They also nabbed few Sailfish releases:
They did have a big Marlin on the line, but the powerful beast spit the hook after a short sparring match with Mr. Burling.
That’s OK…we’ll get him next time!
