The blue water came incredibly close to shore in first week of January, and Captain David of the Adventurer took advantage of the near shore clarity to capture the biggest fish in the history of the boat.
Client Joseph Cannistraci hooked up this MASSIVE 350lbs. Blue Marlin and fought it all the way to the boat.
Captain David performed the single-handed leader release and let this fish swim back out to deeper waters where it belongs…excellent work by the 23-foot switchblade Adventurer!
Doc Hatton, Dennis Shanahan, Fred Lewis and Rick Downing had a great day with huge results on the mega panga Harvester. The day started with a true fish-of-a-lifetime…take a gander at this awesome Blue Marlin:
Great fish handling by Mate Kevin to ensure the safety of both fish and anglers. After the safe release, Captain Alex criss-crossed the area hoping to find more fired-up billfish.
After an hour of trolling a second bad Blue Marlin took the hook.
Another great release by the Mega Panga!
Captain Alex kept his foot on the gas as Team Hatton knocked-out a pair of high-flying Sailfish releases to end the day.
This one broke off the leader right next to the boat, but what an amazing display of above-the-water combat.
This release brought to a close a crazy day of action the the mighty Harvester.
FishingNosara participated in the 5th Annual Dreamstarter Billfish Invitational from December 7-10. This tournament is run by Mr. Brian Neal and our friends at Wanderlust Reality, and was a wonderful experience for all involved.
This is our first time entering this tournament, and it is with great pride that we announce that we brought home the hardware!
From the tournament website: “Dreamstarter Billfish Invitational Tournament would like to congratulate the Wanderer and Discoverer for finishing tied for 1st place in our tournament. Both boats fish under the flagship of FishingNosara and both teams agreed to stick with a tie. Congratulations to both teams!”
