Herb and Sally Pittman joined up with Captain Fico for an afternoon of inshore action on March 18.
The early bite consisted of Dorado and Jack Crevelle, and then Sally finished it off with a nice Cubera Snapper.
It’s easy to work up a hunger while catching big fish, but don’t spoil your Snapper dinner!
The Robert family stayed near to shore with Captain Alex on the 19th, and they ran the gauntlet of our inshore species. These big red Cubera Snappers are a real treat.
Then the Harvester pulled in this big Pacific Amberjack.
Once the filet bag was filled to the brim, they scored a wonderful trophy fish release with this excellent Rooster Fish:
Inshore or Offshore, the Harvester delivers the goods!
The Explorer had a banner day on February 3 with angler Brendan Champagne and his group nagging a wide variety of species.
This rocking Rooster Fish release headlined a day that also included a super Sailfish release:
Then the barroom brawler headed to the meat market. The first filets in the basket were these Dorado:
Then it was Yellowfin Tuna time!
Adding to the filet diversity was this awesome Cubera Snapper:
Excluding Marlin, this trip featured pretty much every major species in our fishery…all in a days work for Captain Fico, Mate Elias, and the multi-faceted Explorer
Stephen Warren and his son had a memorable trip with Captain Fico on November 25. Early in the day they went offshore and scored this awesome Dorado:
Things slowed down offshore, so the Explorer headed inshore and jigged up a beautiful Cubera Snapper.
Great work in waters near and far by the bad barroom brawler!
Craig stayed inshore on the 24th and scored two excellent species using live Bonita rigs.
This Cubera Snapper is delightful table fare and should keep everyone fed for the week.
Later in the trip, this Rooster fish managed to hit the hook but miss the Bonita…fortunately the Harvester released this, the dumbest fish on the reef.
Better luck next time, Einstein!
Clint Frank and his son took to the Explorer on the 21st and Captain Fico delivered the goods with a big Dorado offshore.
Then they headed inshore and snagged a nice Cubera Snapper.
Not too shabby for just a half day.
Captain David stayed busy in mid-November. The Adventurer nabbed some big Dorados and a nice Cubera Snapper.
Dinner is served, thanks to the sneaky 23-foot switchblade.
Our old friend Elizabeth Popp brought her boys along for a fun day of inshore action with Captain David.
The Adventurer delivered the good with this excellent Cubera Snapper backed up by a nice Dorado.
Looks like these growing boys will have plenty to eat this week!
