The Discoverer has kept cooking with gas in the New Year with a fantastic run on Sailfish.
Captain David and Mate Juan Carlos have found their billfishing rhythm and are posting double-digit release numbers.
Also they have scored some excellent meat fish, from the usual Dorado to the rare-for-this-time-of-year Yellowfin Tuna:
Great work by the battleship!
Ryan and MacKenzie Harrington joined us earlier this year during their honeymoon trip, and returned for a fun fishing outing on December 31.
Last time Ryan scored a big Marlin, and on this trip the highlight was undoubtedly this his-and-hers Double Sailfish release.
They also mopped up some nice 25-35lbs. Dorados, plus MacKenzie scored a late-day Sailfish to sweeten the pot.
Great work by Captain David and Mate Juan Carlos for this Tampa-based charter captain.
Ray Anderson and his boys had a fantastic trip on the Discoverer. Here’s what Ray sent to us via email:
Craig – Great trip on the Discoverer yesterday.
My two sons and I caught 3 sailfish (one was 100 lbs), and 5 large dorado.
Captain David and Juan Carlos were the best.
Could not have asked for a better time. We will be back.

The battleship Discoverer deliver the fish-of-a-lifetime for Al Santiesteban and his family on their final fishing day:
This monster Blue Marlin is an angling accomplishment that many travel the world’s oceans in pursuit of, and the excitement generate by this catch can’t be overstated.
As has become their habit, this fishing family added a few more Sailfish to their scorecard later in the trip, rounding out an excellent week of fishing action.
Al has already booked a return trip in late-March and we expect another fantastic performance upon his return.
The Discoverer has been on a billfish-battling mission this month and on November 28 welcomed Al Santiesteban’s family along with Craig Sutton and Danny ‘Shake n Bake’ Baker for a great trip offshore.
They conquered five Pacific Sailfish, then turned their attention inshore where they bested a nice Dorado and a beefy Amberjack:
Great work all around from the crew of the battleship Discoverer!
The Discoverer welcomed Al Santiesteban’s family for their third trip of the week and performed beautifully with multiple Sailfish releases.
These Tampa Bay anglers have a knack for great catches, but believe me you won’t see monsters like this lurking under the Howard Franklin Bridge!
Later in the trip young Bryce added this respectable Dorado, ensuring that this great fishing family has a few filets for the refrigerator.
Great action on the Discoverer as Captain David reports that the near-shore waters are chocked-full of big Dorados and hungry Sailfish.
What a great view from Captain David’s office:
All the Sails were safely released and the Dorado filets were bagged up for these satisfied clients.
Captain David has gotten off to a fast start this season on the battleship Discoverer.
On November 9 he welcomed some clients from the nearby Tierra Magnifica for a trip to the Dorado-chocked waters 5 miles from shore.
This is just a sampling of the excellent Dorado catches for these clients, who ended up with 12 magnificent Mahi-Mahi on ice.
Great work by the Discoverer!
