Captain Alex is always ready to embrace a new fishing challenge, so when fly-fishing enthusiast Mike Williams chartered on December 8 the Harvester was ready for the challenge.
Captain Alex retracted the outrigger and Mate Kevin worked a teaser bait until Mike offered the fly to this big Dorado:
After this excellent catch, Team Williams turned to the conventional tackle and loaded up on a multitude of big Dorados.
That’s three nice smiles right there!
Great work by the crew of the mega panga!
Alabama angler Hall Massey made history for the FishingNosara team by being the first person to catch a Sailfish on the fly.
We’ve attempted a bit of fly-fishing over the years, and this accomplishment was a long time coming.
2018 All Star Calgary Flames goalkeeper Mike Smith traded his blocker pads for fishing reels on April 30 and brought his family to Nosara for some excellent blue water action on April 30.

The whole family got in on the action with many excellent catches.
After several big Dorado scores, Mike deployed the flyrod to nabbed another tasty Mahi.
Great work by this fun group of Canadian anglers
The Adventurer stayed on the bite with some nice Jack Crevelles including the rare Blue Jack Crevelle, all caught on fly-tackle by angler Russ Hampton.
He also scored this excellent Yellowfin Tuna:
Seth Winkelman and his girl Meg hit the water with Captain Carlos on the Adventurer and in addition to enjoying the stunning coastline views, they also knocked out several Jack Crevelles and a nice white tuna.
Seth followed up with an amazing Jack Crevelle caught on a flyrod. Look at the effort being exerted on this wispy rod:
Scott Walcott is a tough-as-nails fisherman from the Bay of Quinte on the north shore of Lake Ontario. He and his brother joined Captain William on the Wanderer to try his hand at some warm weather fishing and were treated with the quintessential bucket list bottom fish: Rooster!
They captured and released two beautiful specimens with a fly rod. Our team is always fired up to try new techniques and flycasting for the powerful surface striking Rooster fish certainly had the boys grinning.
Great work by First Mate Alex on the safe releases as the Wanderer proves once again that there is no type of fishing that she can’t do.
