Our old pal George Kommick had a wonderful run of trips with Captain Fico from July 15 to July 18th. The first day they filled the refrigerator with a wide array of tasty filets.
The highlight of the week came with the capture and release of this high-flying Blue Marlin:
Estimated around 400lbs., this is clearly a memorable catch for this great angler.
Kevin and Stephanie Bickers of Jacksonville had a big time with Captain Fico on the Explorer. They nabbed several nice Yellowfin Tuna and scored a wonderful Sailfish release.
The Explorer welcomed Angie Stagg and her group for blue water battle featuring a beautiful Sailfish release backed up with some tasty Yellowfin Tunas:
The Explorer performed brilliantly on July 5 with clients Keith Benson and Heidi Watson. At the top of the scoreboard were these wonderful Rooster fish releases.
Then they nabbed a nice Dorado later in the day.
The walk-off shot was this mammoth Cubera Snapper:
Awesome work by Captain Fico!
Captain Fico delivered the goods for client Philip Giurlani with five nice Yellowfin Tuna’s on ice.
Great work by the Explorer.
Captain Fico finished the month strong with a run of monster days in late June.
These Sailfish have become par for the course onboard the barroom brawler, however the Explorer also scored big on the inshore reef…check out this MONSTER Cubera Snapper:
Larry VerHoff joined Captain Fico on the Explorer for a 5 hour trip to the blue water on June 19. There was a light rain early in the day, but there was also this beautiful Sailfish:
An hour later the skies cleared and a second wonderful Sailfish came calling. More great fish handling by Mate Elias for another safe release.
Captain Fico kept up the consistency on June 13 with angler Christopher Kellogg reporting a swarm of Yellowfin Tuna on ice.
Wendy Salazar brought her family along on June 12, and we’re stoked to report some big smiles and big Yellowfin Tunas.
Great work by the Explorer!
Mike Borrom and his son came down to Nosara for a bit of fishing in mid-June, and on the 10th they nabbed a nice Dorado.
