Nosara Paradise Rentals GM Javier Hernandez and Cheif Engineer Marino Lora brought their families along for a refreshing day of offshore fishing on February 12.

The Wanderer reports several Sailfish releases and a nice Dorado for the fishbox.

After a year of hardships, it’s great to see the ‘Pura Vida‘ spirit alive and well in Nosara.

The Hernandez Family Vacation took to the Discoverer on the 23rd, as three generations of the family all caught fish.

Sra. Jesus is well-known to our guests who have visited her house on the Horseback Mountain tour, and now it appears that Yellowfun Tuna is on the menu.

Young Dario finished off the evening with another nice Yellowfun Tuna.

The first day of the season filled the refrigerator with Yellowfin Tuna filets, so on the second day Craig and Javier went hunting for trophy fish.

Javier belted up for the first Sailfish of the day. This crazy beauty was darting back in forth above the water.

After a nice battle she was safely released as always.

Craig was next into the breach and waged an epic battle with a big Blue Marlin.

Dario Hernandez joined his father for this trip and snagged a few sandwich-sized Dorado filets.

This trip was also a training run for Mate Antonio, who most of our clients know as our panga boat driver; he will be assuming the mate’s role on the Explorer this year, and will be training with Captain Alex on the Harvester to continue improving his skills.

Craig Sutton and Javier went fishing on the 11th with Captain Fico, along with a special guest: Javier’s seven-year old son Dario.

Fans of this fishing report already know that Dario is a master of river mouth fishing, however this Sailfish represents his first billfish release.

Great work by young Dario!

Javier and some of the Nosara Paradise Rentals staff put up the “Gone Fishing” sign in the office and take the afternoon to enjoy some family fishing on the Wanderer.

Dario nabbed this sandwich-sized Dorado, and then Yosef boated a nice Cubera Snapper.

However the boys were beat out by this monster Snapper:

Meanwhile over on the Explorer Captain Fico celebrated his birthday with his young son bending a rod with this Yellowtail Snapper:

Great family fun for the staff!

As the tourism season enters a two month lull, the Fuppernos (Friends of the River) have been working their tails off at the River Mouth. Check out this fantastic Snook scored by Javier aka Rey Robalo on October 2:

This is the highlight of what has been a great few weeks of river fishing:

Our main man Alejandro nabbed an excellent Snook (above), while our old friend Manuel put some food on the table with a variety of catches:

Local legends also weighed in some whoppers:

Most recently Javier reeled in a wonderful Snook at sunset:

Also the staff of Nosara Paradise Rentals took a break from their off-season maintenance tasks to enjoy a Kayak adventure up river:

Pura vida at its finest!

There has been great action at the Rio Nosara this month with lots of excellent Snook catches reported.

Our old buddy Manuel Campos scored this awesome monster:

Also local legend Santos “Fly” Ruiz knocked out a few nice Robalos:

Another old friend Cumi caught the biggest Snook of the month. Look at the girth on this one:

Anglers of all ages bent a rod this month:

 

 

Of course a resource as beautiful as the Rio Nosara needs protection, and fortunately the Fuppernos are on guard with bi-monthly river clean-ups.

As the rainy season approaches in the highlands, more trash gets washed downhill ending up in the river.

This steps taken by the Friends of the River ensure that the blue flag will continue to fly over the Rio Nosara.

Another fantastic month of action on the Rio Nosara.

Our our buddy Cumi scored this excellent Robalo to kick of the month.

Of course the Hernadez boys scored a bunch of excellent fish on a nightime expedition.

Javier, Grevan, and young Dario certainly brought home the bacon on this night.

Also this monster Snapper was hauled in by local man Clemente:

But by far the most impressive catch of the month was this grande Robalo scored by local man Cuinco:
