Kyle Lewis and his friends took to the blue water on the unstoppable Explorer and bagged some great-eatin’ fish for their week in Nosara.

First up was this big Yellowtail snapper; this is the second whopper of this variety this week and is certainly a Christmas treat for our anglers.

Mark Boyer and his family are from the hard-fishin’ town of Orange Park, FL just 10 miles south of our shops in Jacksonville. This hardy angler won his trip to Nosara at the Greater Jacksonville Kingfish Tournament last July, and they scored big fish in Costa Rica like many of our Northeast Florida guests.

The Boyer family got off to a fast start with a trio of excellent Sailfish release.

After Mom scored the first release, it was time for the kids to flex their fishing muscles on a subsequent pair of Sails.

This one really lit up the sky with some above the water fireworks!

After the safe releasesm by First Mate Alex, Mark Boyer stepped up to the plate and bested the first Marlin of the young season on the mighty Wanderer.

It wasn’t just big billfish on the menu for the Boyers…check out these beautiful Dorados they put on ice!

Another great performance by the flagship with this great Florida family!

The Wanderer put on an inshore fishing clinic today with client Mike Pearce and his friends. The big splash was made with a quartet (that means FOUR) Rooster fish releases with the big one estimated well over 50lbs.

Kestrel Dickerson and her family hail from the beautiful town of Grand Junction, CO and even though the fishing there is more of the river variety this family strutted their stuff on the blue water with the famous Wanderer.

Right off the bat their youngster boated this excellent Ciero Mackeral. Known for it’s zero-shaped spots and delicious filets, this fish is a real winner…nice catch son!

The grown-up had their turn when a pair of Dorados hit the baits and set up a heart-stopping Double Dodo Battle!

Hunting pairs of Dorados are infamous for zig-zagging to tangle the anglers…the fact that both fish made it to the cooler is a real testament to Captain William’s strength on the wheel and these anglers ability to keep cool under pressure.

Mr. Dickerson put the icing on the cake with a fantastic Rooster Fish release:

We use the phrase “filled the fishbox” kind of loosely around here, but in the first of their three days fishing they literary filled the fishbox:

They scored some nice Yellowfin tuna backed up by a pair of beefy Dorados. These filets made a perfect addition to the Thanksgiving feast the next day.

Great work by Captain David and one of the true innovators of Garza panga fishing…great work Richmond!

Our great friend Marion Lawler is back in Nosara for another round of deep sea fishing with his sons. The Wanderer was on top of her game as they hunted down a swarm of Dorados and Yellowfin Tunas for the refrigerator.

Marion’s sons got their first crack at blue water fishing with the Wanderer back in July 2012 where they performed brillantly, however clearly their a little more confident this time around:

JULY 2012:

NOVEMBER 2013:

Clearly they have been working on the craft cause they boated these monsters with the smooth precision of professionals.

Great work by this Texas posse! We expert to see these boys again soon.
