On July 25th the Harvester and angler Carlyle Smith found themselves neck-deep in some BIG Sailfish.
This is the time of year when the Sailfish are at their largest, with some of these easily over 150lbs.
A mid-day Dorado took care of dinner.
More nice Sailfish releases rounded out the day.
Great work by the mega panga!
Texas angler Carlyle Smith had a fantastic day of blue water action on July 23.
This Sailfish release was a precursor to this excellent Marlin release:
The billfish kept coming as this fun group had multiple strikes throughout the day.
Excellent work by Master Captain William and the mighty flagship Wanderer!
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!
