Joseph Caveness and his family chose the Wanderer on May 18 and the family-friendly flagship scored a wide variety of fun fish.

Joe started the day with a nice 20lbs. Yellowfin Tuna and then the kids took over the reel, scoring this nice Dorado.

Captain William moved inshore in the afternoon and young Mr. Caveness scored a small Bonita and a nice Yellowfin.

This 25lbs. Wahoo provided more diversity tot the filet bag, and is a welcome surprise to find this close to shore.

The fish of the day was scored by Mama Bear in the form of this wonderful Rooster fish release.

All in all it’s a great day of family fun on the famous flagship!

On February 1 Captain William pulled double duty with two half day trips from two fun groups of client.

On the morning trip Ricardo Aiste and his group nabbed a pair of Sailfish offshore before heading inside to battle Bonitas.

Then in the afternoon Edward Squieres and Curtis Ethridge brought the kids along for an educational few hours on the water.

No giant fish to report this time, but check out these big smiles…always great to see youngster learn the craft of fishing on the Wanderer.

Our old pal Ryan McCulley brought the family for a 6.5 hour trip and their scorecard ran the gamut from inshore Bonita action to offshore Sailfish scores.

The Bonita were deployed inshore in an attempt to score a big monster, however the offshore bite was really where the beast was found.

Excellent work by Mate Johnny and this young angler.

The Wanderer braved some stiff offshore winds during the first week of January, but still delivered the good for these clients with a fun Double Dorado score:

The next day began with a beautiful sunrise over Playa Garza, a good sign for a productive day.

The offshore winds meant that Captain William would stay inshore and apply a classic live bait tactic that always seems to bear fruit. First step was to collect live Bonitas from the shallow reefs.

After a brief stint in the Wanderer‘s live tuna tubes, the first 5lbs. Bonita was hooked and deployed to the reefs below.

In a flash this mighty Rooster Fish engulfed the bait, leading to this wonderful release.

Later another live Bonita was struck by this 40+lbs. Amberjack, filling the fishbox and putting some tasty ceviche on the menu.

Great work by the mighty flagship.

Wisconsin anglers James Isham booked up the Wanderer on St. Patrick’s Day and they celebrated with some big-time bottom fishing!

The planer / spoon rig produced a small Bonita right off the bat; this feeder fish would be the perfect bait to lure one of the big boys out from their reef hiding spot. Sure enough something big hit the rigged Bonita and James buckled in for the fight of his life!

What a fish! This Cuberra Snapper weighs at least 40lbs. and was followed close behind by another equally large Snapper.

That’s a heckuva impressive inshore haul by the mighty Wanderer!
