For those still clinging to the old notion that the fishing in Costa Rica is not white-hot in July, please check out this July 22 trip from the Harvester with angler Carlyle Smith.

This monster Marlin was just the tip of the iceberg.

A big time Sailfish wasn’t far behind, and the mega panga was there to pull her in.

Another great Sailfish also found its way to the Harvester.

Normally a big day full of billfish releases would be all that you need, but why not add some big Dorado filets for the fishbox?

Oh and in case you are wondering, all of these catch came on just a 6.5 hour trip…imaging if they had gone for a full eight hours!

The white-hot billfish bite continued on July 19 with Captain Alex reporting a mammoth day for angler Steve Balz and his boys. This monster Blue Marlin was the highlight of the trip:

The Marlin was backed-up by this great Sailfish release:

Of course the boys didn’t go home empty-handed, as a squad of tasty Dorados found their way to the fishbox.

Awesome work by the mega panga Harvester.

Brady Ballard brought his posse from Austin, TX for a packed week of action on the blue water with Captain William running the gamut of fish on July 17.

This early-morning Sailfish release was quickly followed up by a variety of tasty table fare.

First a big Dorado, then a pack of Yellowfin Tunas…looks like dinner is served!

A big monster came late in the day. This monster Blue Marlin is a true warrior and it took the best boat in Central America to capture and release her.

Great work by the mighty Wanderer.

The Sherley/Jasak team continued their hot streak on the 15th with more great Sailfish action.

A pair of Sailfish releases got the party started, and then a MASSIVE Blue Marlin showed up looking for a fight.

Great work by Mate Johnny, Captain William, and this fun-loving group of Florida anglers

We got this great email once they got home:

“Craig,”

“I returned last week from my trip to Nosara. Chet Jasak had booked the trip for us over a year and a half ago and it was great to finally get to go fish with your team in Costa Rica. I can’t tell you how much I enjoyed the trip and will recommend Fishing Nosara to everyone.

“One of the guys we took fishing with us has ALS and his mobility and strength are not the best. Both Captain William and Captain Francisco really accommodated us so that we were able to help our friend Bob land both a Sailfish and Marlin.”

“Bob was a diver and commercial fisherman in his earlier years, we are all 71 or older, and as he said this was probably his last chance to catch a Sailfish or Marlin and Captains William and Francisco made it happen.”

“If Francisco wanted to he could have ended our day earlier but he hung in and we got the Sailfish at the end of the day. Captain William had to work the Wanderer over and over to keep the Marlin in position so Bob and I could get it landed. These men and their crew (Johnny and Elias) are much more than just employees, they have heart and your are blessed to have them on your staff.”

Team Jasak/Sherley continued their excellent fishing on the 13th.

The Yellowfin Tuna got the day started off right, with lots of numbers in the fishbox.

The highlight of the trip was a true fish-of-a-lifetime. This big Blue Marlin put up a fight that took all three anglers (and Mate Johnny) to keep under control.

Great work delivering the fish of a lifetime to these Florida anglers.

FishingNosara Hall of Famer Paul Worthington returned to Nosara to add to his legacy, and on July 8 this Florida angler scored this awesome Blue Marlin release.

Later in the trip they added an awesome Sailfish release to the scorecard.

In addition to the trophy releases, Team Worthington put several big Yellowfin Tunas in the icebox.
