Captain Alex has the mega panga Harvester firing on all cylinders, and on the 25th welcomed Doug and Dan Rubino to the party.

Once again Sailfish was the primary catch of the day with seven releases on the scorecard.

FishingNosara’s Northeast Rep Mark Cooney was on board to share in the fun.

Excellent work by Mate Wilson to safely handle and release all of these wonderful creatures.

Phil Egan’s hot streak continued on February 18. Here is the email he sent us after the trip:

Hey there Craig –

Had another killer day on the 5 hr trip on the Harvester yesterday. 3-4 miles out we had our first sail hooked up – the guys were still setting up and only had the shotgun line in the water.

Went on to go 5 for 7 on sails and 1 for 2 on dorado (24 lbs). That boat is a bad ass fishing machine!

Thanks for 3 great days of fishing. The boats and crews are all top notch. The guys all fish hard and with enthusiasm.

I can’t help but think they’ve all probably caught thousands of sails in their lifetimes, but treat each hookup with the excitement of it being their first.

Until next year!

The Harvester battled a bunch of billfish with angler Sloan Roger’s group on the 13th. The highlight of their blue-water battles was this big Black Marlin release.

This monster Marlin release was the finale of a trip that also included a swarm of Sailfish releases.

Mate Wilson and Captain Alex had their hands full with these airborne Sailfish.

Great work by the mega panga and Sloan Rogers’ group!

Shane Whealton finished off his week of fishing in style on February 8 with Captain Alex reporting a 71lbs. Dorado catch; this is clearly the largest of the year so far.

This big bad bull hit two different baits, but Captain Alex was able to calmly coordinate the fight to prevent tangles.

The Whealton boys were joined by FishingNosara’s Northeast Rep Mark Cooney for this fishin’ mission. Their scorecard was marked up with multiple Sailfish releases.

Busy day for Mate Wilson overseeing the releases of these monsters.

Great work by the Harvester and her crew!

Captain Alex welcomed anglers from the Adam O’Keil group on February 6 and posted a banner day of blue water action.

On the way out to the blue water they nagged some small feeder fish, then stepped up the main attraction.

This Marlin release is a truly world-class angling acheivment. Safely handled and relesed by Captain Alex so we can count on battling this beautiful billfish again soon.

The Harvester was attacked by swarms of Sailfish throughout the trip.

These billfish were fired up and ready for action; what a blessing for these Canadian anglers.
