Captain Alex and Brad Watson’s boys got into it with a bunch a bad blue water beasties on the 27th. Big Dorados were iced throughout the day.

Once again we have proof that the more FishingNosara swag you wear on the boat, the more the fish cooporate.

Meanwhile, the Harvester was on the the hunt for some of the swarm of Sailfish swimming near our shores.

On February 26, Dan Johnson from Hatteras took his longtime friend Manuel Obando from Garza out along with Captain Fico‘s son Moises Friend Anthony and little nine-year-old Jefferson.

It was Jefferson‘s first day on the sea and he was happy to catch a Dorado and some bottom fish. Dan gave him a pair of sunglasses, and he’s now a Pescador.

Certain anglers want to micromanage their trip (inshore for 1.5 hours, troll for 2hr, cast for 45 minutes, etc.) and a common response is  to “take what the ocean gives you.”

Phil Egan learned this lesson from the sea on February 16. Here is his account:

“So, our little 2.5 hour 3-5:30 snorkeling trip turned into quite an experience. Green water and swells over the reef turned the snorkeling into a bust. We then turned offshore to see if we could have the kids spot some dolphins – that was a bust too.”

“After about 45mins searching, the guys then said “how about some fishing”. Um….sure! We ended up snagging 2 sails – so much fun.

“And then with the sun going going down and the guys taking in lines – the last remaining line in the water – port outrigger – blows up. Bring in a beautiful ~40 lb dorado!”

“Can’t wait for the Thursday trip!”

The Discoverer was excited to welcome back Ted Markow’s family for a return trip to the blue water.

Just like their trip last year, Team Markow did great. They enjoyed a fun Sailfish release, then nagged big Dorados.

They also battled a Blue Marlin but it spit the hook before it could be billed.

“Kevin and Carlos know what they are doing,” wrote Ted. “I watched Kevin prepping the equipment and bait on the ride out. He pays attention to details. Carlos sees the fish when they are going after the attractors. Kevin brings the bait close to the fish in order to hook them. They did not miss many fish.”

“What great memories for my 15 year old and 11 year old daughters. Not may 15 year old girls can say they fought a 200lb plus blue marlin for almost 30 minutes.”

“Great times!”
