Captain David has made life miserable for the local Sailfish populations this week, much to his clients’ delight. Check out this array of bad Sails:
Nice fish-handling by Mate Kevin means that these released monsters will be back for more action really soon.
The Discoverer also scored this nice Dorado; almost as green as the inshore water in the backround.
Andrew Queral and Doug Dickman got off their week of Costa Rica fishing off to a blazing start! They notched the Wanderer‘s scorecard with a big Dorado, several Sails, and a MASSIVE Marlin.
A nice pair of Sailfish were the highlight of the morning, and a mid-day Bonita catch led to First Mate Alex reaching deep into his bag of tricks:
The crew moved quickly to rig a hook to this Bonita and keep him alive in the Tuna Tubes…this bait was pitched into the spread when a big Black Marlin hit.
In the afternoon they accidentally hooked-up a small Shark and released it after the photo:
It wasn’t all releases, though; this floor-sweeping Dorado certainly melted a bit of ice and served as the cherry on top of a perfect day of fishing.
Our friend John Garris had a blast on the Explorer with the dynamic brother duo of Captain Carlos and Mate Kevin. Joined by Jeff Grosshandler, they scored a pair of Sailfish releases backed up by a nice Dorado.
They also captured this excellent footage of Dolphins flanking the Super Panga:
Kirk and Jan Wurster finished their fishing adventure on July 4 with a trip offshore; after besting Roosters and Snappers inshore the logical choice was to see what was biting in the blue water 10 miles out.
The early bite brought in this nice Dorado:
Later in the afternoon the line screamed off and Kirk belted up to battle a big Sailfish!
Excellent boat handling by Captain William kept the fight short and sweet while First Mate Alex ensured a safe release.
The Kirk Wurster group is on fire this week! They followed up their excellent pair of Rooster fish releases with this tasty keeper:
Kenny scored this whopping Cubera Snapper (estimated right around 30lbs.) and this feisty fish’s filets are full-on fridge fillers!
They also added this nice Dorado for variety:
David Uhl and his boys got their week of Extreme Panga Fishing underway on the 23-foot Adventurer.
The inshore action was strong, yielding White Tuna, a small Dorado, and a beefy Yellowfin Tuna.
Nice work boys!
Boca Raton’s own Jim Baldwin signed up for 6.5 hours on the Adventurer and his investment of time was paid dividends of filets.
The hits came hard all day long, with the size of this Dorado and these Yellowfin rivaling the catches on the big boats.
We’ve said it a thousand times, but the big fish don’t care if you have a big boat…great work by the 23-foot switchblade.
Katrisha Seata blew into town for one night, stayed at Nosara Paradise Rentals and went straight to Garza for a full day of fishing on the battleship Discoverer.
The elected to stay near shore and check the bottom for reef-dwellers, and were rewarded with this mammoth Rainbow Snapper:
They also scored on Yellowfin Tuna and small Dorados.
Nice haul from the fish market by Captain David and the Discoverer.
