The Wanderer delivered a great inshore experience for the Christine Franz group on January 5. First order of business was to acquire live-bait, and this 5lbs. Bonita fit the bill perfectly.
This morsel was re-hooked and sent to the bottom, where it was inhaled by this beautiful Rooster Fish:
Safe released as always, this tactic proves again why Captain William is a true master!
A really fun group of anglers came down from Texas for a week-long fishing campaign, and got things going right away with lots of nice Dorados on deck.
These meaty Mahi will keep the group fed, but the highlight of the trip was this monster Sailfish release late in the day.
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!
Fresh off of the Ship of Fools victory, El Matador booked the Harvester for an afternoon of family fishing with his young son Noah.
The kid took the water splendidly and turned the crank on this Bonita.
A trip on the Harvester is a great way to get a kid started fishing on the right track.
Trey Hardy started his week with a world-beating Marlin release, but on day two the fish weren’t as cooperative as they had to settle for a handful of Bonitas and White Tunas.
Still you got to appreciate the big smiles and fun that comes along with with catching fish regardless of size.
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.
Captain David kept the good times rollin’ on January 27 with a boat load of fun fresh filets.
These big Jack Crevelles came early in the trip with some late-day rod bending provided by these Bonitas:
