Our amazing crew has been working hard these last few months on the construction of Casa Bianca, so when Javier asked if he could launch one of the boats for a relaxing fishing time the answer was “Of course!”
Captain Alex and Mate Wilson of the Harvester found some nice Yellowfin Tunas just a few miles off of the beach. Alexander, Grevan, and Marino were happy to have these filets on ice.
Then, they spotted a large macha of porpoises a little bit further offshore. A funny thing happened on the way to the porpoise pod.
A 400+lbs. Blue Marlin caught up with a single lure that Captain Alex left in the water while in transit, and struck it while the Harvester was clipping along at 20 knots!
That is a new level of high-speed trolling! Safely battled by Foreman Dieter and released by Mate Wilson, this release is now part of the Harvester‘s untouchable legacy.
Most of the boats are on the hill for their annual refit and repaint to prepare for the new season. But Javier and Grevan felt the fishing itch, so they took the Transporter out to the reef and scored a boatload of Yellowfin Tunas in just under two hours.
That’s right, the Transporter…our 14-foot ferry boat that our clients know well from the trip from Playa Garza out to the boats.
Well, um….two things here: 1.) This is the boat record for the Transporter, and 2.) You know how we always say you don’t need a big boat to catch big fish in Nosara? This is what we are talking about.
The staff of Nosara Paradise Rentals took some much-deserved time off on the 26th to celebrate Marino, Alejandro, and Grevan’s birthdays. They joined Captain William on the Wanderer for an afternoon of inshore fishing and scored this sweet Rooster Fish release:
Later they enjoyed some tasty cake back at the campus.
While most of the staff celebrated the end of the season on the Wanderer, the mighty tandem of Alejandro and Grevan of Nosara Paradise Rentals put on a billfish catching display on the Explorer that will not soon be forgotten.
They started out with a pair of nice Sailfish releases, then Alejandro closed out the season with an awesome Blue Marlin release:
With two months of maintenance looming on the horizon, it’s nice to make sure that the billfish don’t get lonely while our boats are on the hill. We’ll be back soon!
It’s staff fishing day for the crew of Nosara Paradise Rentals as General Manager Javier Hernandez was joined by Marino and Grevan from the property staff for an inshore harvest on board the Explorer.
El Jefe helped break in our new set of Penn Spinfishers as the boys brought home a nice Cuberra Snapper, 8 Yellowfin Tuna (20lb.), 3 White Tuna (15lbs.) plus a small Dorado. This is the second time this week that Captain David has captured the four major meat species on a single trip and by the looks of these reports the Explorer may put the fish market out of business.
Great catches for some great guys, even Marcos is getting in on the fun!
Time again for the monthly Nosara Paradise Rentals / FishingNosara company fishing outing. Javier was joined by his wife Ana and son Dario, brother Grevan, Cathy, Arturo, and Freddy for a relaxing afternoon on the Wanderer with Captain William and First Mate Alex.
We’ll let you know if they caught anything shortly. Regardless, it is always great when the crew gets a chance to relax and enjoy a day on the ocean.
