November 14 will be a day that John Schimkaitis, Heather Cozart and Jared Cozart never forget as they enshrined themselves in the FishingNosara Hall of Fame with a legendary BILLFISH GRAND SLAM!

First up was John nabbing a 100lbs. Sailfish, released early in the trip, completing the first leg of the Grand Slam.

Then a 100lbs. Striped Marlin came calling around noon; not the biggest specimen we’ve ever seen but Jared’s catch still counts as the second piece of the Grand Slam.

Finally it was Heather’s turn on the reel for a MASSIVE Blue Marlin estimated by Mate Kevin upon release to be well over 350lbs.

The action was so hot on the Discoverer that the scorecard shows more than just Billfish releases; a good array of Dorado and Yellowfin Tuna means that these North Carolina anglers will be able to replenish their strength at the dinner table.

Fantastic work by Captain Carlos and the unbeatable battleship Discoverer!

Our old pal George Kommick had a wonderful run of trips with Captain Fico from July 15 to July 18th. The first day they filled the refrigerator with a wide array of tasty filets.

The highlight of the week came with the capture and release of this high-flying Blue Marlin:

Estimated around 400lbs., this is clearly a memorable catch for this great angler.

A group of Lousiana-based anglers led by Jamie Garcia scored world-class billfish action on June 29. The leader of the pack was this 250lbs. Blue Marlin.

They also nabbed a big Sailfish release after an action-packed firefight.

Team Garcia didn’t leave empty handed, as the scored a few filets thanks to these Yellowfin Tunas and Dorado.

Texas angler Brandy Willis brought her fun-loving group down to Nosara for an action-packed week of blue water fishing action.

This high-flying Blue Marlin was the first fish of the day for the flagship, and the action would stay hot throughout the day.

Next up with this aggressive flying Sailfish, which managed to spit the hook after a series of acrobatic leaps.

 

Awww, shucks!

Fortunately the bite stayed good, as evidenced by this tasty Dorado for the dinner table caught by Dustin Purvis.
