Harry Adams pulled a beautiful haul with solid inshore action on the morning of the 28th.
After this a huge Broomtail Grouper, the Explorer backed it up with a nice Rooster fish release.
Later in the week the Explorer welcomed Bill Laurie. They headed offshore and pulled off a nice Sailfish release.
Brendan Chenowith brought his sons along for a great day of action the 20th.
They bested some blue water billfish and also deployed the flyrod for tasty treats.
Here’s what Mr. Chenowith had to say in an email:
We had two great days with Alex on the Harvester. Alex put in a lot of effort to get us fish on the fly rods. He also did a fabulous job making our kids feel like they were the center of his attention.
His willingness to share his knowledge of the fishery taught us a lot about blue water and inshore fishing. We all came away from our experience wishing we far more time to spend in the Nosara area.
All my kids want to come back and fish again. I can’t ask for more than that. We intend to make it back soon.
Ronald Wade’s family couldn’t resist spending a morning half day on the Discoverer on January 2, and it turns out that the fish couldn’t resist the battleship’s spread.
Nice work by Captain Carlos to deliver these nice Dorados and Yellowfin Tunas.
The Discoverer welcomed the Faro family for a morning half day and despite the quick trip still delivered the fish of a lifetime:
This wonderful Blue Marlin should provide a great fishing memory for the whole family.
Rowdy Stovall and Kathryn Sharn brought the kids along for a big day of action on the Discoverer.
It always gives us a big smile to see the next generation of anglers get the great experience of big time fishing in Costa Rica.
The Explorer hit it big with several Dorados on ice for client Pete Burcop.
The boys performed brilliantly on this five hour trip and have lots of filets to show for their effort.
Awesome work by Captain Fico and the unstoppable Explorer!
Our new friend Paul Gioguardi scored big on the Harvester with tons of great catches in just five hours of fishing.
This big Rooster fish release was the highlight of the trip, but don’t sleep on these excellent Dorados for the dinner table:
It’s great to see young anglers get on the fish and bring them home.
The Wanderer finished the season with a magnificent trip with Christine Clarke and her family on August 22.
The father/son and mother/daughter combos went head-to-head with two nice Dorados.
A third nice fish rounded out the filet haul.
Family fun aside, Captain William and the mighty Wanderer earned the title of the FishingNosara flagship by scoring big Marlin releases.
This beastie put on a show for the Clarke family, and Mate Johnson was ready to bill and release the final Marlin of the season.
After a year that saw 234 trips, the big blue beauty is back on the trailer and ready for a month-long repaint and refit.
Captain William will be back on the scene in mid-September to continue his reign as the best Captain in all of Central America.
Josh Elder and his son enjoyed a wonderful day of action with Captain David on the Adventurer. The highlight was this rockin’ Rooster Fish release:
They also brought home some filets thanks to this Yellowfin Tuna and big Rainbow Runners.
Ken Garlington brought his son along for a blue-water fishing battle on the Discoverer where the young angler bested this sweet Sailfish:
Great work young man!
