Julie Edwards’ family had a big day on the 32-foot Discoverer on the 19th, highlighted by this MONSTER Blue Marlin.

They also scored a Sailfish during the day.

In addition to the safe billfish releases, this group added a nice Dorado and a Yellowfin Tuna.

Great work by Captain Carlos and the big battleship!

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.

While most of Bill Harris’ group was on board the Discoverer, Mr. Harris himself took to the 28-foot barroom brawler Explorer and opened up her season with a BILLFISH GRAND SLAM!

This Blue Marlin was the highlight of the morning, and was followed by a late-day Striped Marlin. Bill nabbed the first Marlin, and Mark Scott scored the second.

A nice Pacific Sailfish by Diane Turner completed the Grand Slam.

They didn’t go home empty-handed, thanks to five nice Dorado catches spread throughout the day.

Even a small shark came up for a photo before being released.

Fantastic work by ‘El Brujo’ Captain Fico and the unstoppable Explorer!

FishingNosara Hall of Famer Bill Harris has returned and brought a big group of Tampa Bay anglers with him for several days of blue water fishing in Costa Rica.

On the Discoverer, the team of Eli Bedran, Andrew Lipps, Kelsey Harry and Laurie Harry report a fantastic Blue Marlin release (the first of the year for the big battleship) backed up by six nice Dorados.

These are real deck-sweeping Dorados!

Great work by Captain Carlos and Mate Kevin!

Amazing work by big battleship Discoverer!

Captain Alex entered the closing stretch of the white-hot August bite with a wonderful Blue Marlin release on the 25th.

Angler Stuart Smith bested this bad boy, and it was just the beginning of a banner day.

Captain Alex handled the safe release, complete with his signature move: the Kiss Goodbye:

A big Yellowfin Tuna came along, and then a nice team of Dorados also found the fishbox.

 

As if there arms weren’t worn out by this time, a paid of late-day Sailfish came calling and fought bravely all the way to the safe releases.

Awe-inspiring day on the water by the mega panga Harvester!
