Herb and Sally Pittman joined up with Captain Fico for an afternoon of inshore action on March 18.
The early bite consisted of Dorado and Jack Crevelle, and then Sally finished it off with a nice Cubera Snapper.
It’s easy to work up a hunger while catching big fish, but don’t spoil your Snapper dinner!
Captain Fico kept scored throughout the month of March…check out this great array of catches from the 15th. They started with a nice Rooster Fish release by Kyle Sever.
Then they nabbed the elusive Blue Jack Crevalle, a rarity for this area and the source of amazing ceviche.
Team Sever then headed offshore and scored this excellent Sailfish release.
Our great friend Mark Cooney was on board and our Northeast Representative added to his legend with this another Sailfish release.
Kyle Sever joined Captain Fico on the 13th, and although the action was a little slow, they still nagged a nice Sailfish release:
As always it’s great to see a young angler sink his teeth into blue water fishing.
Rick Noonan returned on the 10th and continued to score Sailfish releases.
Great work once again by the barroom brawler super panga!
We are so close to the blue water that sometimes real magic can happen. Consider this report from March 9:
Rick Noonan headed offshore about 10 miles to the deep blue water, and immediately started scoring billfish.
Several nice Sailfish releases were backed up by a feisty Striped Marlin release.
Rather than stay offshore to pursue another Marlin (thus securing the ultra-rare Billfish Grand Slam), Captain Fico headed inshore and scored another trophy: This excellent Rooster fish.
The Explorer continues to amaze!
Great things are worth waiting for, and angler Mike Goins sent us some photos from his late February trips that are absolutely mind-blowing. First up is this nice Striped Marlin release from his trip on the 27-foot Explorer:
They he also nearly missed a Grand Slam on the Discoverer with this excellent Striped Marlin release backed up by a Sailfish release.
Great work by this fun-loving fisherman!
Captain Fico stayed inshore with Greg Randecker on the 7th and posted a very productive day, highlighted by this nice Rooster fish release.
They also got some sweet treats to eat, thanks to these tasty Snappers:
Captain Fico has earned his nickname of El Brujo (the witch) by conjuring big fish for his clients no matter the time or place.
For example, check out the biggest Broomtail grouper of the last few seasons delivered by Fico in late February.
The Explorer has been casting spells on bottom fish all season and the clients are reaping the rewards.
