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!

Our new friend Juan Levesque got off to a hot start in late July with a great day on the Explorer.

First up was this small Rooster Fish release.

Then the super panga headed offshore and pulled off a sweet Sailfish release.

They also put some excellent filets on ice, thanks to a pair of awesome Cubera Snappers.

Great work by Captain Fico and the barroom brawler Explorer!
