The North Carolina dominance continued on the Explorer as Eddie Barnett and his buddy slayed some good-eatin’ fish on the Explorer with Captain David.
This Dorado is a fine specimen estimated to weigh around 30lbs., but the real treat was this 40+lbs. Wahoo.
The silver bullet is arguable the most difficult meat fish to catch as pound-for-pound they fight as strong as a Black Marlin.
Great work by the legendary Explorer.
Our main man Alejandro took a break from his duties at the Nosara Paradise Rentals office and coerced Captain David to take him and his wife to the blue water.
The Explorer performed masterfully as always, yielding this big Dorado for the dinner table.
Excellent work by a man who doesn’t understand the meaning of a ‘day off’.
Michael Heilman caught some monsters on board the Adventurer today. This Cubera Snapper is a big boy!
They also got a pair of Dorados including this MASSIVE Mahi:
That’s definately two-armloads of fish for this fella!
Franz Iwancsich hails from Austria and on his trip to Costa Rica signed up the Adventurer for a few days on the blue water. Captain Carlos delivered the goods with lots of hot action.
The highlight was this beefy Dorado which was backed up with a wide array of smaller reef fish. Nice work by the 23-foot panga.
David Grandell and his boy were throwing haymakers at all comers with Captain Carlos on the Adventurer! They started out with a big Dorado:
Then set to work on a team of football-sized Yellowfin Tuna.
For the knockout punch they landed this whopping Cubera Snapper.
Great work by the 23-foot switchblade the Adventurer!
Another fantastic Sailfish releases for the 23-foot Adventurer. Check out this blue water beastie:
Later in the day these boys added a 15-20lbs. Dorado for the dinner table.
Excellent work all around by Captain Carlos and these kids.
The Explorer welcomed Matt Ketcham today from the hard-fishin’ town of Patchogue, NY on the south bank of Long Island.
This pro fisherman is set up about as close as possible to the Canyons, but the ‘short’ overnight ride he is used to is a little different than the 1600 foot ledge at the front porch of Garza Bay.
Look at this action from a 5 hr. half day barely 10 miles from shore:
Awesome work by Captain David and Mate Kevin on the safe Sailfish releases.
Shawn and Jen Riley won their trip to Nosara from the Wavemasters Surfing Tournament last year in Jacksonville, and their half day on the Wanderer delivered two excellent Sailfish releases backed up by a big Dorado on ice.
Jen was the hot rod for the day, breaking the ice early with the Dorado and closing the day with the second Sailfish release.
Shawn followed up with a big Sailfish that almost took him into the drink for a bath!
Great work from another in long line of fish-catching Northeast Florida clients.
