Mark Rogers got his week started right with Captain Alex reporting multiple Sailfish releases on May 20.
The second Sailfish release was a high-flying beast that put the Harvester to the test.
In addition to the trophy releases, the mega panga nabbed a boatload of Yellowfin Tunas. Great eats ahead for Mark Rogers and his posse.
Captain Alex kept the coals burning on May 17 with this sweet Sailfish release:
After the billfish was swimming free, the Harvester followed the dolphin schools and snagged dinner in the form of fresh Yellowfin Tuna.
This is a great time of year because you can catch Yellowfin Tuna one day and Dorado the next day, all using the same tactics and same spread.
These big Dorados are a welcome addition to the dinner table.
Of course any trip on the Harvester isn’t complete without a sweet Sailfish release.
Excellent work by Captain Alex!
Paul Arthur and his fishing buddy Ricky Kay upped the ante on their second day of fishing, with TWO Marlin releases backed up by one of the biggest Dorados we’ve ever seen.
Want to get a sweet fishing jersey like this one? We don’t make them so you can’t, unless you are like Paul Arthur’s group and get your own made in advance of your trip.
Three Marlin releases in less than two days is a remarkable feat, but when you add in this MONSTER Dorado you get the definition of a perfect fishing day:
Amazing action from the mega panga Harvester!
Captain Alex welcomed anglers Paul Arthur and Ricky Kay for a four-day fishing mission, and early on in their adventure they ran into some hungry world-class billfish.
This high-flying Blue Marlin was the highlight of their first day on May 12, which also featured three Sailfish releases.
Excellent hunting by Captain Alex and safe fish handling by Captain David (on loan from the Adventurer) means that these big boys will be around to be caught again in the future.
Great job by the Harvester!
On May 7 Captain Alex whipped up a Yellowfin Tuna feeding frenzy on the Harvester. Check out these excellent catches:
Our old pal TJ Conrads was on the scene to welcome these Yella Fellas.
When the offshore bite is a good as it’s been recently, only a fool would stay inshore and plunk around for little fish…the smart move is to listen to the advice of the long-tenured Captains of FishingNosara and head offshore.
Angler John Grover took heed of Captain Alex’ advice and found the big blue water beasties lurking about a dozen miles from shore.
Three anglers, three bites, three fish-of-a-lifetime (one slipped away after being de-hooked but before the picture). Not bad for just 5 hours work.
Great job by Captain Alex, Mate Wilson and the Harvester!
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 Harvester kept up the pressure on the 29th with a haul that may put the fish market out of business. Look at this whopper of a Dorado:
This was backed up with some smaller but equally tasty Dorados for the kids.
Naturally the mega panga wasn’t leaving without scoring a nice Sailfish release for the scrapbook.
John Jones of New York City joined Captain Alex on the 27th and jammed in as much good fishing as possible into their 5 hour trip.
Multiple Sailfish releases are quite memorable, but they didn’t leave empty handed, as a handful of Yellowfin Tunas provided the meat for the dinner table.
Excellent work by these Upper East Side anglers.
