“What a great week of fishing!” writes Dustin Purvis. He fished with Brandy Willis and Brady Schmidt, and there was plenty of action to go around.

“6 Sailfish and several Dorado caught with two great crews. Awesome accommodations, and plenty of great people to meet. We will be back!”

“Mate Johnson and Mate Juan Carlos were a blast to be around on the water.”

Bob Rhinehart came to the Explorer looking to fill the fish box, and he got as that he asked for.

The big filets came in the form of big Yellowfin Tuna backed up a fat Dorado…excellent work!

Bob returned the next day for another foray into the blue water. The bite was slow early in trip, but heated up in a big way in the afternoon.

This Dorado hit at 4:45pm and even though it was late, Captain Fico knew they were on the right spot.

Less than an hour later this Striped Marlin took the bait at 5:25pm

From striking out to hitting a home run all within one hour…persistence pays!

Texas angler Brandy Willis brought her fun-loving group down to Nosara for an action-packed week of blue water fishing action.

This high-flying Blue Marlin was the first fish of the day for the flagship, and the action would stay hot throughout the day.

Next up with this aggressive flying Sailfish, which managed to spit the hook after a series of acrobatic leaps.


Awww, shucks!

Fortunately the bite stayed good, as evidenced by this tasty Dorado for the dinner table caught by Dustin Purvis.
