While half of Chuck Harris’ group were knocking out bottom fish with Captain David on the Explorer, the rest of them headed offshore with Captain William on the Wanderer to see what was biting in the blue water. The flagship found her way to Sailfish City and released this lovely pair of hunting buddies:
It wasn’t just about the trophy fish, as the boys got on a small school of Yellowfin Tuna later in the trip, highlighted by this 30lbs Yella fella:
June 15 was an amazing day on the Explorer with the Chuck Harris group!
This 70lbs. Dorado was the highlight for the Good Doctors who, in addition to capturing this meaty creature and putting him on ice, got some incredible photos. Check out this monster pound the gunwales of the Explorer!
This fish is estimated at well over 60lbs…keep in mind that the guy in the picture below is over six foot and the tail still touches the deck.
These guys have another full day on the Explorer planned for tomorrow so stayed tuned for more updates.
Chuck Harris and his group of hard-fishin’ doctors are back in Nosara for a full week of heavy fishing. Their first trip on the Wanderer went splendidly with trophy fish released and the return of a favorite: BIG Yellowfin Tunas
They got off to a fast start at 9:30am with was a matched pair of Dorados estimated at 35lbs.
The real action picked up in the afternoon with two Sailfish within minutes of each other.
They also whacked two Yellowfun Tunas at 30lbs. and a monster 100lbs. beast that is certainly a welcome sight!
The Good Doctors will be fishing all week and we can’t wait to see what is in store for these fellas.
The Rick Blackburn and Chuck Harris group capped off their intense week of fishing with some near misses on legendary fish, but managed to salvage the day with four Dorados for the dinner table and one more Sailfish release.
Here’s Rick with at the Sailfish petting zoo. They raised a marlin on the teaser but couldn’t coax the big girl to eat. Still this was a great conclusion to a very active week of fishing.
You know Chuck had a blast because he has already booked his next Costa Rica fishing adventure…could Chuck Harris be the first three-time FishingNosara Hall of Famer? We’ll have to wait and see.
Things have stayed lit up for Chuck Harris and Rick Blackburn’s group as once again we have report of a mighty billfish released. This monster Sailfish came calling at 10am and was no match for this team of seasoned FishingNosara Hall of Famers.
Another safe release as always by First Mate Alex.
Later in the day this sandwich-size Dorado came onboard to give Chuck a little kiss. How sweet!
Team Harris wore them out again today on the mighty Wanderer with a GIGANTIC Marlin release! This Blue beastie is conservatively estimated to weigh 375lbs., though since we left her in the water it’s all a guess.
What an incredible run these fellas are on! This is their second Marlin in two days and they have more hunting planned this week. Stay tuned for some more great catches from these anglers.
Marlin Alert! The mighty Wanderer and Hall of Famer Chuck Harris captured one of the meanest Blue Marlin of the season. This 350+lbs. brute mugged the spread until First Mate Alex deftly brought the circle hook home.
Captain William backed the beast down while Chuck won back line at a steady pace. After a vigorous 20 minute battle they had this big girl alongside for the release.
Another safe Marlin release for the Wanderer and a true fish of a lifetime for Florida angler Chuck Harris.
Hall of Famers Chuck Harris and Rick Blackburn have planned multiple days of fishing on the Wanderer. On their first day they opted for good-eating fish so Captain William chased down a large school of big Yellowfin Tunas. Check out these monsters:
Mr. Harris and his pal Dave Wesmoss have booked the Wanderer and Explorer solid this whole week. It will be exciting to see what they pull in as they grow more seasoned to Costa Rican fishing by the day. With all these tasty Yella Fellas, they will certainly be well fed for the week!
