On November 21 Craig Sutton was joined on the Wanderer by Matty, Pat, Paula, Craig Jr., Sylvia and Charley Barnhart and we did a full day of work on the offshore Yellowfin Tuna.

The big Yellas were chowing down on Williamson Jet Poppers and slow-trolled cedar plugs. Even though these catches were great, we still left a few big fellas in the water.

Overall, a great day fishing with some great folks.

Also clients John, Joe, and Bruce Sabine finished their week of fishing in Nosara by making life miserable for the big Yellowfin Tunas.

Jet Poppers and ceder plugs were the hot lures, and the trio of Tampa anglers had a legendary good time. The fishboxes were so stuffed that they released this 70lbs. Yellowfin.

The boys went offshore on Tuesday November 16th and had a field day on the Yellowfins, this time the mack daddy weighed in over 75lbs.

The bite was so thick that eventually they started catching and releasing; unheard of for nice meat fish like these, but there was enough tonnage that ice consumption was a concern.

Regular readers of the FishingNosara Costa Rica Fishing Report will remember that last month client Buddy Cherry caught four 20lbs. Yellowfin Tunas on June 15th. Well turns out that on June 16th Captain William put this client on a school of MASSIVE Yellowfin Tuna. The whopper was over 150lbs!

Seriously, I can not understate how big this fish is…Buddy Cherry is a big North Florida boy and notice that the fish is almost his size.

Forget about mates Alex and David…This fish is way bigger than they are! This achievement capped off a great week in Costa Rica for Mr. Cherry and has earned him a spot in the newly created FishingNosara Hall of Fame.

Another great angler filled up his refrigerator on June 15th by catching four 15-25lbs. Yellowfin tunas.

These reef dwellers are as tasty as they are fun to catch. They are feisty and will fight all the way to the boat. Fortunately the North Florida anglers get plenty of practice with a wide variety of species and this group was all over these tasty Yellowfin tunas.

July 28th marked the arrival of one of our favorite clients, Richard Moran. Mr. Moran brought the whole family to Nosara, and fortunately he caught enough fish to feed them all.

On his first day, Richard filled the fishbox with a 10lbs. Yellow tuna, two 15lbs. Jacks, and six 10lbs. Black tunas, plus he reeled in a 10lbs rainbow runner and a little needle fish for good measure.

Then he invited Javier and Craig of Nosara Paradise Rentals along for the ride, and the extra hands were put to good use as the spread was literally getting shredded by some aggressive sailfish. Richard caught and released a massive 120lbs. Sailfish, the biggest single fish of his trip, but not his best total day of fishing.

That came on August 3rd when, once again joined by Craig Sutton, Richard Moran successfully fought four 50lbs. Yellowfin tuna! These are by far the biggest tuna we’ve seen in these waters this year, and it seems as though this tuna bite will hold strong in the coming months as the rainy season approaches.

May 29th was a day of variety for client Ivan DeLuca, catching a 15lbs. dorado, a 5lbs. jack, and a pair of 10lbs. black tunas.The highlight was this excellent Yellowfun Tuna.

Ivan came back a week later and was joined by Conceige Numero Uno Manuel and Mate David Barrantes for a full day with Captain Vibert, and they redefined ‘day of variety’ by reeling in three 12lbs. yellowfin tuna, a 5lbs. gerguero snapper, three little suegras, and a beautiful 10lbs.
