John Shellhorn and Jim Freyburger fished with Captain Carlos on the Discoverer on February 25th.
They scored a Sailfish release early in the trip, then moved inshore for a great Rooster Fish release.
They rejoined the battleship on the 26th and finished off their time in Nosara with this amazing Cubera Snapper catch and release.
Here is the email John sent us after the trip:
Finally back in country and wanted to thank you for a great trip.
My wife and her friend Mary had never caught a billfish and on the Wanderer, caught four each in two days including a double hook-up. They were thrilled and will be talking about that for a long time.
I caught a nice 38 pound rooster and my friend Jim caught a nice Cuberra snapper while fishing the last two days with Captain Carlos on the Discoverer. Although we only fished a half day on our last day, our group total for the four days of fishing came to 13 sails, 6 tuna, 1 rooster and 1 snapper.
You guys have an excellent operation and we had an awesome trip! Your staff are incredible at their jobs and your facility offers world class fishing! It was great to get to spend a little time with you and we are really appreciative of an awesome trip. Will continue to spread the word (and pictures).
We will never forget “the one that got away… the fish of a lifetime.”
The guys worked on a gigantic yellowfin tuna for 3 hours…. as soon as we got a good look it it… the line snapped.
The guys are still very sensitive about this.
I’m not sure how big it was… every day it gets bigger and bigger. Today the guys are estimating it was a good 400lbs. Ha.
Even though the fish of a lifetime got away we still had a great time fishing!
Sam and Cory swam with Sailfish…
Allison and Cindy went offshore for their first time… and caught a sailfish.
