Ron and Katherine booked the Wanderer and their party came home with a wide variety of fish. To the left, a nice Yellowfin Tuna. Below is a 20-25lbs. Cuberra snapper; not the biggest one we’ve seen but certainly just as tasty. Beneath that is a nice little Amberjack.
All of these fish are great as sushi or as table fare, and I’m sure that nobody went hungry on this night!
Our good friend Eduardo Barrios is back in Nosara. With several trips on the Wanderer under his belt, Sr. Barrios was itching to try the new Explorer. He brought his youngest daughter out and Captain David put them on some fish early and often.
“Lost track of how many black tuna,” writes Eduardo. “At least 10 plus one jack and two snappers. And of course we lost several great hits that we just couldn’t get any leverage on. Below is a pic of what we took home.”
“We also had the opportunity to see a few sting rays, a whale, lots of turtles and dolphin. My daughter absolutely loved it.”
The highlight of the month for the Wanderer was welcoming Rick and Mary for a magical week of fun, fishing, and taking the plunge (into marriage that is, not the water). The happy couple and their families spent the week at Nosara Paradise Rentals and enjoyed five days of fishing on the Wanderer.
On December 17 they got things off to a hot start with a few white tunas and Yellowfins, then they nailed this meaty 20lbs. Cuberra Snapper. With the fishbox already full of these tasty fish, Captain William pointed the Wanderer offshore in search of the big billfish.
Using our High-Speed Marlin Spread they pulled in this beautiful 250lbs. Black Marlin. Despite the moisture on the camera lens, you can tell this is truly the fish of a lifetime…and this was only the first of five days fishing!
As always, this big billfish was live released unharmed.
John Harbord, Bruce Sabine, and Joe Ronnlof represent some of the best anglers in Clearwater, FL and on Monday November 15th they went on their first of four full days of fishing on the Wanderer. While these fellas are used to pulling Snook and Tarpon out of the north side of Tampa Bay, they were more than ready to tackle the big Costa Rican meat fish.
On their first day Bruce was the hot rod catching two magnificent Cuberra Snappers. As with Matty’s Broomtail the day before, these fish were given to the villagers in Garza to make one heck of a sopa de pescado (fish soup).
These clients are friends of Captain William and had a great trip: perfect conditions and a great Cubera Snapper…and a really cool hat!
Client Juan Adriatico book the Wanderer on October 31 and got things off to a quick start. First he got to work on the inshore reefs with a few 12lbs. Yellowfin and White Tunas.
Then, the line screamed off when it was hit by a 50lbs. Amberjack.
Early in the afternoon Juan got the hook into this awesome 45lbs. Dorado.
Hopefully this is a sign that with El Nino gone the fish are starting to resume their normal feeding habits.
Mr. Adriatico wasn’t done yet!
Captain William and the boys put Juan on two massive Cuberra Snappers to cap off Opening Day. Both weighed over 30lbs. with the big one nearing 50lbs. Great start to what will be a great season!
July 3th brought Yorhany Zuñiga on board for an afternoon of fishing with his brother First Mate Alex and he caught this nice Cuberra Snapper, estimated to weigh around 35-40lbs. Yorhany is a local and close friend to FishingNosara and certainly knows how to catch nice fish.
Craig Sutton was joined by clients Ray Carter and the lovely Georgia peach Paula Price for a great trip on the Wanderer on May 30th.
The weather was just about as perfect as could be imagined and the party had a fantastic array of catches. In total they caught a mean little 20lbs. Wahoo (above), a 30lbs. Amberjack, a 35lbs. Cuberra snapper and two 12lbs. Yellowfin tuna.
The highlight of the trip was a pair of 100+lbs. Sailfish releases. Paula showed her skills on the reel as both fights were under ten minutes and both fish were released.
On April 26th clients Dwayne and Katrina fishing for a half-day on the reefs. They applied our FishingNosara Cuberra Tactic and caught a beautiful 30lbs. Cuberra snapper. They rounded out their day with four sweet whites tunas.
