Matty was on board the mighty Wanderer on December 18 and battled a MASSIVE Black Marlin for two hours.

This monster hit around 3:00pm and fought until sunset, when after several leader grabs finally broke the hook right next to the boat.

We see around five of these size Marlin per year, and is clearly the biggest fish Matty ever caught.

The flagship didn’t go home empty handed, thanks to this nice Dorado from early in the day.

All smiles on the way back in.

Great work by Captain William and the mighty Wanderer.

Michael Busch scored big on his first day of fishing on the Discoverer…get a load of this MASSIVE Black Marlin.

This beast was followed up by a nice Pacific Sailfish.

Later in the trip they bested a nice Blue Marlin, completing the Billfish Grand Slam!

Great hunting by Captain Carlos and excellent fish-handling by Mate Kevin to see these fish safely released.

Mark Andrews’ group was back on July 4 and as part of their Independence Day celebration they liberated this massive 42lbs. Dorado from the sea.

This floor sweeper was backed up with another monster Mahi Mahi

Several big Yellowfin Tunas were also added to this mix; a great follow up to their Ahi haul from earlier in the week.

Finally, Mark got hooked into a BIIIIGGG Black Marlin with a spinning reel.

Wait a minute…how is he trying to fight a Marlin with a spinning reel? What could possibly lead someone into bringing a knife to a bazooka fight?

Oh, well that explains it. Anyhow the Black Marlin only fought for a few moments before it spit the hook.

Still, a great day from the Harvester!

Here’s the message Mark sent us: “Just wanted to thank everyone involved for such a great vacation. Great place to visit, great fishing, and wonderful people in Costa. Debra and myself had a great time. Thanks so much.”

The Discoverer welcomed anglers Douglas Gawthrop and Tom Hacker for an action-packed morning half day on January 12.

This big Black Marlin is truly the fish of a lifetime, and was a sign of good fishing to come. A nice Sailfish release followed:

The trophy fishes were backed up by a few nice Dorados for the dinner table.

Amazing action for just a half day!

The Discoverer delivered the fish of a lifetime for angler Neil Sessions with this wonderful Black Marlin release:

Captain Carlos’ masterful boat handling kept this fight short and sweet, while Mate Kevin fearlessly executed the safe release of this monster.

Later on in the trip they scored a sweet Sailfish release backed up by a pair of Dorados for the dinner table.
