Henrik Fruelund came to us all the way from Europe to ply the blue waters off of Nosara. He selected the mega panga and they got down to business quickly.
The pelagics were fired up and each put on a tailwalking above-the-water display on the way to the safe releases.
Fantastic work by Mate Kevin and Captain Alex to ensure the safe survival and release of these sportfish.
They returned the next day (February 24) for more firefights with fierce Sailfish.
Once again the Harvester was up to the challenge, and successfully fought several Sailfish.
All of this billfish battling can cause one to work up quite and appetite…thankfully they added a big Dorado for the dinner table.
New Jersey angler Jack Herzlinger was super-excited to get fishing after purchasing his trip 18 months ago at the Saltwater Sportsman Expo in Edison, NJ.
Turns out it was worth the wait as the Harvester reports several super Sailfish releases.
They also added some tasty Dorados for the dinner table.
As a final send-off, they scored a wonderful Rooster Fish release for the trophy room. First they picked up this big Bonita:
Then they put a hook in the Bonita and sent it to the bottom, where this monster Rooster fish engulfed it.
Great job by Jack Herzlinger and the mega panga Harvester!
Shane Wealton treated his father to a Nosara fishing trip in late February, and on the 22nd they filled up the fishbox with lots of Dorados.
The Harvester reports several big Mahi-Mahis, each weighing in at around 30lbs.
Shane put some Instagram filters on the best pics and posted this nice message on social media: “Blessed day with Dad!!!!!!!”
The Harvester delivered the goods for angler Brian Thomas on the 18th. Check out this sweet Dorado score:
On the 14th, European angler Allan Riboe and his posse stayed inshore with Captain Fico and scored one of the nicest Rooster Fish releases of the season thus far.
The Rooster Fish was the highlight of a trip that also included nice Dorado and Yellowfin Tunas for the filet bag.
The Willers group enlisted the big battleship for a blue water fishing mission on February 13.
This monster Dorado was followed up with a world-class Sailfish release.
David Schwertner posted great results on the 12th with a nice Saifish backed up by some nice Dorados.
Great fish handling by Mate Kevin to release this beast alive and well.
The flagship Wanderer welcomed David Anderson for blue water battle on February 12, and they hauled in some nice sized Dorados.
