Our great friend Patrick Armbruster is no stranger to big-time reef fish as evidenced by this massive haul on a day trip with Captain David on the Explorer.
White Tuna, Yellowfin Tuna, Walleye Tuna, and the terrifying Cuberra Snapper…clearly the Explorer is game to battle all kinds of great tasting and hard-fightin’ reef fish.
Jason came home with this nice-sized Jack on a half-day fishing with Captain David Barrantes on the Explorer. As usual the Explorer is catching all types of fish for her clients.
Our buddy Sheffey caught this monster on the Explorer today…
Seriously though, his group got on some nice fish and had a great trip. We let this little fella go, so come on down in about 20 years and this thing will be some nice eatin’!
Javier and our great friend Brooke Shields took an evening cruise on the Explorer with fine results. While it was “slow” all day for the other boats, Captain David strolled in and boated a dozen fish in 1.5 hours. Not so slow after all!
Javier claims that he will catch the first Marlin on the Explorer, but for now these little fellas will have to do.
St. Augustine anglers Roy and Cathy Cox followed up their strong performance on the Wanderer with a great day of action on the Explorer. They caught a pair of Yellowfin tunas over 20lbs, two big Amberjacks and seven black tunas. Great trip!
Client Allen Collen and Captain David stayed inshore and pulled off the double-whammy of bottom fishing: Grouper and Cuberra Snapper on the same trip!
These monsters have been known to exhaust the most seasoned anglers…managing to fight both of these fish in one day is a real feat.
The Explorer is rocking and rolling! Captain David has been putting clients on all kinds of fish in the last three weeks, and now he is bringing in the billfish.
Client Steve Levine and his son Alex hooked up this beautiful Sailfish while fishing with Captain David on the Explorer. Steve spent three awesome days on the Wanderer this week as well, and believe me the billfish are glad to see him go!
The Billfish bite is definitely heating up! Steve booked the Wanderer for a day of fishing and I am pleased to report that they released a 150lbs. Stripe Marlin!
Also, over on the Explorer client Dean Ricci caught two Amberjack and two white tunas, all weighing between 15-20lbs. After this early morning trip, Captain David was joined by client Jacob Owen for an afternoon half-day. He caught a macarella and a white tuna.
The big fish are starting to rear their heads, so what are you waiting for? Get down to Nosara soon!
